Inclusive Leadership for Nonprofits

PALABRAS & CIRCULOS: On Bias, Privilege, & Power
 
Please join us for the second in our series of virtual trainings crafted for nonprofit leaders about inclusive leadership. The series will help executive directors, leaders, and trustees gain a deeper understanding of inclusive leadership, learn concrete strategies to implement within their organizations, and network with non-profit leaders across Boulder County.
 
Thursday, April 1, 2:30-5 p.m.
 
This session, with Norma Johnson and Maya Sol, will explore the ways in which bias, privilege, and power inform our leadership. By way of storytelling and cultural practice, we will examine how the stories we hold in regard to power and privilege express themselves in our somatic experience and in perceptions of ourselves in the world. We will identify strategies for moving through spaces of shame, feelings of being stuck related to our stories, and provide avenues for connection, humility, and inclusive empowerment.
