We work with groups and organizations to examine our roles in racial justice, build solidarity, and commit to long term change.
The World in Progress program typically consists of a day-long in-person workshop, plus a post-workshop resource guide to keep attendees connected and engaged with their workshop cohort.
During day-long workshops, attendees can expect to engage in a collaborative, participatory learning environment that empowers individuals to address the ways in which they promote and foster racial justice both personally and professionally. Using creative teaching methods, our workshops place individual experience at the center while establishing institutional commitments and change. Each workshop is customized to the group's common assets and challenges.
Attendees will also receive a post-workshop resource guide intended to encourage continued examination of the workshop's lessons, build collaboration, support, and solidarity across their cohort, and provide opportunities to take considerable steps towards action and change.
Working in a cohort creates space for both individual reflection as well as interdependent leadership skills in social justice. Recognizing that racial equity is a practice, not a checklist, and that we are bound together in community and in healing, cohorts are built to serve as intentional learning communities. It is our hope that cohorts can maximize cross-organizational partnerships and collaborative support to develop lasting commitments and allies for racial justice.
