Thurrock Local Safeguarding Children Partnership

Anti-Racist Practice Webinar

Wednesday 8th November 2023

10.00 till 12.30 via MS Teams

Southend, Essex and Thurrock (SET) are pleased to offer practitioners the opportunity to attend these FREE webinar presented by Shantel Thomas.

This webinar aims to share theoretical and research informed knowledge in relation to racism and the notion of becoming anti-racist allies, from a number of perspectives, using a range of materials.  It is aimed to invite participants to think about anti-racism within their organisation and team context. The course holds relationship-based, anti-racist practice at its heart and is based on a model for achieving emotionally intelligent, critically reflective, curious conversations, in a safe space.

Participants will be invited to consider their own individual identity and position in relation to power, white privilege and black and global majority empowerment and develop their own personal mission statement for their learning on the workshop.  The group will be invited into a shared online space, with an ethos of collaborative learning, where we will co-create shared responsibility for our learning together about this important and often under-explored issue.

This webinar will provide an opportunity for participants to:

  • Understand how our unique history and biography shapes us, each other and our culture.
  • Take ownership of our positions of power and privilege and how this is informed by other intersecting factors which shape our identity.
  • Exploring the individual, institutional, societal and global levels of complexity and structural inequality which creates a culture of racism, oppression and discrimination.
  • Consider how to contribute to a revolution of allyship, which embraces the notion of actively becoming anti-racist in everything we feel, think and do, captured in a final personal pledge.
