Phase I: January through May 2021

Phase I of Carleton’s antiracism training focused on the language and concerns of anti-racist work, to help each of us understand how racism is manifested at Carleton, and to develop common vocabulary to understand the experiences of our community members. A series of community-wide and affinity group sessions covered such questions as:

  • What is racism?
  • What is implicit bias?
  • What does it mean for Carleton to commit to antiracism?
  • How does racial identity affect how people experience life at Carleton?
  • What are racial microaggressions?
  • How can individuals become allies and intervene as bystanders?
