Bringing Healing to Our Equity Work - Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Belonging, Justice

Event Details

Wednesday January 25, 2023
5601 6th Avenue S
Seattle, WA 98108

In our diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging, and justice (DEIBJ) work, we are also beginning to hear more about the importance of healing. We are beginning to name the ways in which systems of oppression have caused and continue to cause harms from which individuals, communities, organizations, and systems need to heal.

During our time together we will briefly explore why healing is important in our work and how we might begin to embed it as practice in what we do. We will do this through presentation, activities, and reflection, as well as honoring the wisdom and lived experience of those in the room.

Light snacks will be provided at this workshop.

Who Should Attend

This is a space for those:

  • Interested in exploring how healing and the work of diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging, and justice connect and lead us closer to more just and liberated workspaces and societies.
  • Interested in exploring three practical ways we might create opportunities for healing in our workspaces
  • Interested in trying on and leaning into new or additional ways to think about how we engage in work that honors our shared humanity
