Challenging racism and respecting different perspectives

About Challenging racism and respecting different perspectives

There may be times you want to support your friends and your community to cope with racism or hold a space to discuss racism when you know there are people who oppose it. These are important conversations and are challenging to do and require an expanded capacity to listen to all sides with empathy.

This workshop aims to help you to expand the capacity and build the confidence to respond to others emotional needs with a higher level of sensitively and empathy and also ensuring your own perspectives are heard and your own needs are met.

Who are suitable for this workshop:

  • those who want to support people who have experienced racism
  • those who want to support others who have directly or indirectly witnesses racism
  • those who want to create the space to talk about racism and therefore hold multiple and potentially polarised perceptions and views

Note: This workshop is NOT suitable for those who are overwhelmed by racial incidents. It is recommended that if you are overwhelmed to attend the workshops Racism: How to deal with my emotions and Racism: Why did it happen to me? first before attending this one.
