Racial Justice Education Program
The Racial Justice Education Program is a required training opportunity for staff of the YWCA of Bethlehem, focused on educating staff about the many and varied ways racism impacts their lives, as well as the lives of the clientele and community they serve. The program equips staff with the information and insight to identify racism when it is seen, heard and/or experienced, and helps staff identify ways to break the cycle of racism. Racial Justice Education helps staff to understand their own racial biases and to grow, both as individuals and collectively as an Association. It can also assist in dismantling stereotypes staff have internalized about others and themselves that not only influence their personal lives, but their professional lives, as well.
For more information about this program, or how it can be implemented in your workplace, please call the YWCA.
