racial and intersectional equity (r.i.s.e.) in the workspace

This Introductory Training will enable attendees to understand Converge's framework and begin to apply Racial and InterSectional Equity (R.I.S.E.) in the workspace.

R.I.S.E. brings to fruition nearly 20 years of experience in creating radical change in communities and workspaces in areas of diversity, race and equity. In this workshop, Converge presents its proprietary R.IS.E. framework and demonstrates how it is vastly superior to the hollow DEI promises of the past. By intentionally redesigning work culture around an intersectional analysis of systemic oppression and racism, organizations can greatly benefit from more robust internal infrastructures in which ALL employees can thrive and grow.
key definitions

key definitions

racial

A social construct that artificially divides people into distinct groups based on characteristics such as physical appearance (particularly color), ancestral heritage, cultural affiliation, cultural history, ethnic classification, and the social, economic and political needs of a society at a given period of time. Racial categories subsume ethnic groups.


.

intersectional

Recognizes the interactive impacts of various forms of systemic oppression. It examines how racism interacts with patriarchy, heterosexism, classism, xenophobia — and how our multiple identities can help clarify they ways in which a person can simultaneously experience privilege and oppression.

equity

Intentional strategy to ensure the communities most affected by systemic oppression get increased  access to opportunities, networks, supports and resources to address that oppression.
