White Leaders Cohort (4th Thursdays)

February 27, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
North by Northeast Community Health Center, 714 NE Alberta St., Portland Portland 97211

This Targeted Cohort is for you if you identify as “white” and hold a leadership role in any organization or community group and are seeking to answer “how do I lead in a way that will really advance our organizational commitment and practice of racial equity?”

Specifically tailored toward Non-Profit Executive Directors, Chief Executive Officers, Directors, and Board of Directors; however we welcome anyone who is leading to advance racial equity.

This unique method of engagement over a period of eleven months serves counter to the dehumanizing programming of white dominance. Participants at all stages of their anti-racism journey have found this method to be impactful.
