Advance Racial Equity, Systems Change

Build your anti-racism practice to identify systemic barriers and equitable solutions.

The social justice movements have provided everyone an opportunity to learn or enhance their approach when it comes to addressing equity. Anti-Racism practices challenge and transform beliefs, ideas, behaviors, policies, institutions, and systems rooted in white-centric ideology. The purpose is to shift power, voice, and perspective to the lived experiences of Black, Native, Latine, and many other historically marginalized communities—restoring justice where there were inequities.

Our workshops give you the tools to identify systemic barriers, their root causes, and equitable solutions.

Step 2: Workshops


Elevate Equity by Decolonizing Data and Language

Social justice movements call for removing the onus of very complex social issues from individuals and, instead, shifting our focus to our systems. The data and words we use can dehumanize and deflect from systemic flaws that need repair or overhauling. Explore the dangers of labels and data infographic messaging. Then, in part two and with the help of the Erikson team, update your communication materials to point to root causes and solutions to change the system.
