Recent studies have shown that a lack of intentionality and mitigation of individual biases in the performance evaluation process has had serious and lasting impacts on Black and Brown workers. With unfair evaluations and ‘lower quality’ feedback comes less opportunities for professional growth, less workplace recognition and promotions, lower pay, and lower employee engagement- all factors that contribute to the historically low retention of BIPOC workers in the environmental sector. In this final BIPOC Convening session, we will share our own experiences with giving and receiving feedback and participating in performance evaluations. We will also explore different feedback tools and practice stretching and flexing our feedback muscles.
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.
*This program is made possible by the generous support of Wilburforce Foundation and is offered free of charge.
