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, white supremacy, white 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.
