FREE webinar with Professor Nouman Ashraf about Emancipatory Leadership

Social consciousness around the importance of anti-racist movements and the disparate impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic and climate crisis has created a unique moment for leadership development.

This moment has also publicly exposed historic race, gender, and class-based discrimination that has been instrumental in creating vast economic, environmental, and social disparities that impact wellbeing. There is a growing consensus that rooting out deeply embedded social inequity demands a reset around capacity building and leadership development.

This session builds on the timely demands for racial justice and empowers emerging leaders to become change agents in the movement toward an anti-racist society.

The session recognizes that addressing and dismantling entrenched discrimination and its root causes and rebuilding systems that are socially equitable necessitates a deeply collaborative and iterative effort. Participants will learn how to interrogate and dismantle systems of inequity and oppression with their own communities and organizations and rebuild equitable, intersectional systems in their place.
