White supremacy culture: A healing dialogue for executives and decision-makers

Starts: April 22, 2020 10:00 am | Ends: April 22, 2020 12:00 pm

Are you forced to make tough decisions right now? Are you afraid of falling into the same old patterns of inequity?

The COVID virus acts as an amplifier of every injustice that is built into our systems. As leaders, times of crisis like these offer the temptation to default to the way things have always been done – and the opportunity to transform your outcomes now and into the future.

Come together with other decision-makers to:

  • Share how it feels to be leading in this impossible moment
  • Reflect on who is being most impacted
  • Strategize together about how to keep racial equity at the forefront

This dialogue is designed for board members, executives, and others who are making decisions for your organizations. Don’t expect a polished, packaged training. Instead, this will be a facilitated conversation for folks who have a good grasp of white supremacy and have begun to implement racial equity in their organizations.

Jae R. TaiI spent the first part of my professional career navigating work in digital media and tv/film production in the competitive regions of New York and Los Angeles. My work experience ranges from on-camera talent to production behind-the-scenes. My positions include; principal roles in a Spike Lee Joint, and It’s Your Nature.org; Associate Producer for Cisco and Disney Planet Challenge.  These days my focus is exposing my children to an environment with a balanced racial narrative. Since returning to Portland, I have worked with Self Enhancement Inc. and taken a more active role in race relations by working with Resolutions NW as a race dialogue facilitator. Tiny Tech Academy supports my desire for creativity and social change.
