Virtual Panel: Anti-Racism, Allyship, and Authenticity: Building Internal Capacity for Institutional Change

Tuesday, August 04 2020 at 1:00pm - 2:30pm

What will it take to build an anti-racist organization? In this follow-up virtual event to “Race, Equity, and Justice: A Call to Action,” we will address what skills and actions are necessary for workplaces to advance beyond statements to being anti-racist organizations that dismantle systemic racism and rebuild equitable structures in their place.

Join the Michigan Ross Center for Positive Organizations and the Managerial and Organizational Cognition (MOC) Division of the Academy of Management for a hard, powerful, and action-oriented conversation that connects our individual behaviors to organizational practices that build internal capacity for change. We’ll engage with experts to learn how organizations normalize whiteness through constraining the authenticity of non-White employees and how to develop skills as allies to build effective alliances that oppose racism and sustain change. Leave with actionable strategies for working across differences to build anti-racist structures that allow all members to thrive.
