29 Sep Straddling the Line Between Organizational Bravery and Staff Burnout
From 1:00 PM until 3:00 PM ET
Presented by the Washington Coalition of Sexual Assault Programs
This workshop acknowledges that many sexual assault and domestic violence agencies are making an effort to make brave and bold moves to be responsive to racial and social injustice within the movement. However, it often calls on the staff from communities experiencing systemic oppression to advocate for the very community they belong to. Engage in a dialogue to address the following:
- How can we find balance between moving the organization forward and supporting staff that belong to historically oppressed groups
- How to have conversations about defining and executing support for the staff executing the bold actions
- Naming and framing internal organizational practices that uphold white supremacy
- How do we maintain the focus on "community/client" AND staff
- We will collaborate to build a "toolkit" for participants as they "straddle the line."
This is a 2-part webinar series but it is not required to attend both parts. Information on part 1,"Leader or Loner: How to Center & Support Staff Belonging to Communities Experiencing Systemic Oppression"on November 10, 2021.
