Exploring and Advancing Racial Equity in Organizations and Communities

Racial equity is an important issue that affects every aspect of our society, from the workplace to our communities. In order to address this issue, it is crucial to understand the forms of racism that exist and how they influence desired outcomes.

Marisa Zalabak, MA, an Author, Educational Psychologist, Public Speaker, Researcher, Social Justice Activist, and Leadership consultant for Open Channel Culture, will be leading a 90-minute webinar introducing critical lenses for exploring and understanding forms of racism. Marisa is a specialist in social-emotional intelligence, creative thinking, wellness, conflict mediation, diversity-equity-bias education, and restorative practices. She has trained thousands of professionals across sectors in business, education, and mental health organizations and institutions.

During the webinar, participants will be invited to consider existing, embedded practices of racism and inequity as a part of a process for addressing racial inequity within organizations and communities. The goal is to clear pathways for building anti-racism into organizational practices and policies. Attendees will examine nuanced issues, obstacles and behaviors that affect every level of engagement and influence outcomes.

Marisa’s work is dedicated to increasing equity and well-being for humanity and the planet. Her passion lies in exploring the potential for humans to flourish as we meet current and future challenges with compassion, curiosity, optimism, creativity, and joy.
