In “The Business Case for Racial Equity” (2013), the Kellogg Foundation states: “research has shown that businesses with a more diverse workforce have more customers, higher revenues and profits, greater market share, less absenteeism and turnover, and a higher level of commitment to their organization” (p. 5).
The YWCA Madison offers three-day professional development training workshops for educators, community members and parents. Restorative Justice staff presented the first training in August 2015. We have now have the dates for the next series. To be notified about the next series, please email Eugenia Highland.
You will find an introductory program focusing on racism and white privilege. This curriculum is intended to inform future learning. We strongly encourage you to continue your learning by attending some of our racial justice programming, by starting a book or discussion group, or by attending other community racial justice initiatives.
In this nine-month (September 2017—May 2018) intensive leadership and career development series, you will develop skills to support personal growth and strengthen your organization. Our approach is intersectional, and focuses on leading inclusively.
All sessions will be held from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at YWCA Madison’s Empowerment Center located at 2040 S. Park Street. Purchased individually, each workshop is $100. Attend all three levels and save $50.
