LMU Anti-Racism Workshop Series (LAWS)

Launched in Fall 2021, the semester-long program provides a learning environment for faculty and staff to gain a foundational understanding of anti-racism in society and in the university.

In these interactive workshops, participants will utilize an analytical framework - the four I’s of racism (Intrapersonal, Interpersonal, Institutional, and Ideological) to develop skills and strategies to effectively combat racism in their spheres of influence. Community building circles and small group discussions will provide ample opportunities to grapple with key concepts and to learn from other participants how to dismantle racism together in community. This semester (Spring 2023), the complete LAWS experience will be offered over two day-long retreats. The exact schedule is as follows:

February 10: Retreat 1 
March 10: Retreat 2 
*All times 10am-4pm.  All workshops will be in person with lunch provided. 

This is an amazing professional development opportunity for LMU faculty and staff and an astounding opportunity for our institution to have more change agents working towards becoming anti-racist. If you have anyone you think would benefit/be interested in this (including yourself), please submit their information on this anonymous survey by January 19.
