The Healing Racism Institute of Pioneer Valley’s (HRIPV) two-day signature program starts a community-level dialogue about the intersection of race and the history of racism that raises awareness, but also challenges how people define diversity as well as how people view themselves and others. The Healing Racism experience is rooted in honest conversations, providing an understanding of the pathology of racism and what constitute the wounds caused by it; sharing of history and personal experience of race and racism; identifying the signs and symptoms of racism in our everyday lives and businesses; and tools to continue addressing racism in our lives and workplace.
The Providers’ Council and HRIPV are excited to offer a special session of this seminar exclusively for members of the Council. Space is limited to 30 participants from 15 member organizations (two executive-level staff from each organization). This seminar is 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Monday, October 29th and Tuesday, October 30th. Participants must attend both days in their entirety. The fee is $425 per person; this fee covers trainers, meals and materials for both days.
