Phase II: Spring 2022
Phase II of antiracism training will focus on Carleton-specific contexts and how individual employees might take action within their own work settings. This includes addressing bystander intervention, individual responsibility to act, and creating a welcoming environment.
Each employee is required to complete the following (3) component for Phase II:
- Consultant-led Session (90 minutes): This is a small group 30-35 person session, (in-person, except for those who work entirely remotely) with randomly-mixed participants. Strategic Diversity Initiatives (SDI) consultants, Anne Phibbs and Stephanie Chrismon, will lead these sessions.
- Participants will sign up for one session that fits their schedules (sessions available between April 13 and May 16).
- Focused on bystander intervention, individual responsibility to act, and creating a welcoming environment within Carleton contexts.
- Department, Office or Work Unit Group Discussion: These conversations, held in departmental, office, or unit groupings during the second half of Spring Term, may request the assistance of a trained facilitator, if desired.
- Discussing the content from the consultant-led session and how to apply bystander intervention, individual responsibility to act, and creating a welcoming environment within one’s own work setting.
- Depending on size and interests, departments and offices can request to engage in cross-working group sessions, and CEDI will help make connections for those looking to collaborate on this conversation.
- Choose a Campus Event: Throughout spring term, select and attend, either live or recorded, an on-campus event of your choice that addresses an aspect of racism. CEDI has compiled a list of events from which to choose.
