The second annual Nonprofit Management Summer Camp is a retreat for nonprofit professionals in beautiful southern Vermont. Participants will have the opportunity to take two workshops focused on the competencies of their choice. Workshops will be tool-based, out-of-your-seat sessions, that encourage participation, connection, and fun.
Summer Camp is an inexpensive way to receive the training you need in an amount of time you can work with. Join us for a day of catching up, connecting with your nonprofit colleagues and innovating sector leaders, and eating s’mores.
Identity Development for White Folks with justin adkins
All people hold multiple identities. We all have a race, gender, class, sexual orientation, etc. and we make decisions about others based on how we perceive their identities. By doing this we are not acknowledging or celebrating the diversity of our communities and we make quick decisions based on our assumptions.
This session will be a hands-on exploration of your own identity. We will explore how we learn about our identities and how we can change the world by breaking down the cycle of socialization. We will discuss what these aspects of identity mean, and how they influence our work in the non-profit sector. This session is open to people of all identities, though the framework will be focusing on the way white people learn about race in the US.
