Transforming White Organizational Culture

A live, interactive online workshop that looks at how people can work for racial justice by:

  • Identifying and exploring the characteristics of white organizational culture
  • Understanding how white organizational culture operates in your organization
  • Exploring remedies to the negative impact of white organizational culture on your organization
  • Transforming your organization to be truly diverse, equitable and inclusive


Many professionals and organizations know something about “white privilege,” and maybe “structural racism,” but fail to recognize how their organizational culture embodies white cultural values, practices, norms, and expectations. What appears to be “business as usual” and “the way things are” actually reflects unexamined white cultural values which are often problematic and limiting. Learning what this means and what to do about it are key skills in our emerging multiracial society.

The workshop uses didactic presentation, small group discussion, large group discussion, and slide show presentations.
