Topics:

New England

Timezone:

Eastern

Location:

The NonProfit Center, 89 South Street, Boston, MA

The Switzer Foundation will partner with VISIONS, Inc. to provide this one-day workshop for Fellows on the role of race, power and privilege in environmental leadership.  As Switzer Fellows, we work across a range of issues and are of many racial, ethnic, socioeconomic and gendered groups.  How can we as a community, and as individuals, learn to be active participants in the groundswell of attention to the racial divides in our world with cultural humility, compassion and openness?  How can we better work across our differences and strengthen our relationships as allies?  There are many pressing environmental issues that we all work on, but the calling to build deeper racial awareness and understanding is a critical leadership capacity to which we invite all Switzer Fellows to commit. 

Please contact Erin Lloyd, Program Director, if you are interested in signing up for this workshop.

The workshop will be followed by an evening reception in celebration of the 30th anniversary of the Switzer Foundation, to be held at The New England Aquarium with a keynote address by author and environmental activist Terry Tempest Williams.
