What is the Facing Racism Institute?
The Facing Racism Institute is the area's leading program for uncovering racism and understanding its impact on individuals and the workplace.
More than 200 people have attended the two-day Facing Racism Institute.
Racism is still a powerful force in our lives and community. The Institute challenges participants of all backgrounds to be part of an equally powerful dialogue. We provide the safe space and neutral guidance needed to help that dialogue emerge.
Through presentations and exercises, participants engage in and build a shared understanding of racism together. After facing racism and its impact on individuals, businesses and our community, participants develop tools to create an inclusive workplace and community.
