About the session...
If we want just relationships, relationships based on trust and authenticity, relationships which acknowledge and interrupt oppression and dominance, we have to do our own work but what does that really mean?
In this webinar participants will learn a framework which names and describes the stages we go through to move out of fear toward understanding. We will explore how fear limits our capacity to imagine creative alternatives, keeping our thinking rigid and righteous. We will explore the importance of context and the difference between equality and equity--a persistent trap and gap in our ability to interrupt imbalances of power.
During this webinar, Nanci Luna Jiménez, will elevate our conversation around equity and justice: starting with relationships. She will ask us to look inward, to grapple with internal barriers and biases. She will also invite us to look outward, to name and understand systemic oppressions and their impacts. Join us as we build and reestablish “Just Relationships” as we renew our commitment to increased equity in the facilitation field!
