Learning Goals

Facilitated by Dr. Eddie Moore Jr. and Dr. Robin Martin participants in the institute will learn and explore the following: 

  • Provide an open and challenging space, geared toward participants of ALL ethnic backgrounds, who are committed to understanding power, privilege, oppression and antiracist leadership.
  • Participants will understand and apply SNAP (see, name, act, proceed) philosophy to their antiracist leadership.
  • Explore how individual actions and responsibilities fuel the behaviors of those around us and develop a set of ethical behaviors and self-management processes that empower leaders to impact the larger community.
  • Learn how to shift the emphasis from a single, all-powerful leader to an interconnected community of leaders and followers with shared responsibilities.
  • Discover how to refine, reimagine, and explore beyond the impulse to find the “right” answer and unlock the unlimited possibilities of innovation.
  • Examine how to build and collaborate with a coalition of community actors determined to upend oppression and forge a path that leads to greater individual and collective freedom through small and large-scale actions.

Testimonies from 2023 Participants

The workshop was excellent! Even as a person of color, I felt challenged by the content.


It’s beyond networking, it empowering and inspiring! The colleagues participating across our campus community bring such depth and breadth of expertise and experience, and the facilitators guided us to move dials to become an antiracist leader, with ongoing support through continued meetings and a community of practice.


The institute was an amazing opportunity to reflect, rejuvenate, and be in community. We highly recommend.

Executive Director

The Anti-Racist Leadership Institute has been very meaningful to me, to forge new connections with staff and faculty across the University, to establish that UW truly is deeply committed to anti-racism, and to share resources and tools for improving our work.
