The BIPOC Convening is a quarterly series of convening for BIPOC leaders in the conservation movement. These virtual sessions are a space for peer support, collective learning about anti-racist and decolonizing practices from cross-sector leaders, skill building for de-centering white supremacy culture, and increasing individual resilience towards racial justice and joy. BIPOC leaders across all roles and tenure are invited to participate in this program. Future session topics to be announced.
*The BIPOC Convening is meant to be an opportunity for people of color to connect across shared experiences and challenges. We invite Black, Indigenous, and non-White folks to join, and we ask the White-identified folks to honor the purpose of the space.
Feb 16th Session Description:
Is it possible to bring your ‘full self’ to work? Is authenticity in the workplace a myth for leaders of color? In this session, we will dive into your experiences with this topic, biases in professionalism standards, being your own advocate and identifying what it means to bring your ‘best self’ to work.
