Ethnocultural Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee invites you to our Webinar: Do the Work; Becoming an Accomplice. Understanding
your privilege and identifying as an ally are a start, yet not enough. We have
to do the work. This workshop covers the next steps in anti-racist work, past
allyship into becoming an accomplice. We will examine the differences between
these two concepts, learn to recognize performative allyship, share insight
about what it means, and how to start the necessary work of becoming an
accomplice. Segments of this virtual, interactive workshop will
use breakout groups to enhance discussion and build community. The EDEI Committee has partnered with Change Cadet to
provide this education to the ISPE Boston Area Chapter.
