[ARCHIVED] Community DEI Workshop Planned for March 14


Take part in a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) workshop on Tuesday, March 14 from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Zoom. 

All members of the community and especially Town Meeting Members, are invited to attend Bigger Than Racism: Understanding Racialization and Structural Advantage in Wellesley and Beyond, which will focus on ways Wellesley can work to ensure equal opportunity for everyone. 

Please register in advance at 

Information presented in the workshop will provide important context for the Anti-Racism and Anti-Bias resolution and equity audit that the Select Board and School Committee are proposing to Annual Town Meeting.

Here are the key objectives of the workshop:
 - To explain what racialization is and how it can create structural advantages that lead to sustained inequalities even without the presence of racism
 - To identify the mechanisms of structural advantage that reproduce racial disparities and shape communities such as Wellesley
 - To discuss how a town can address inequity in a way that supports everyone. 

The workshop is presented by Bird Guess, President, The Racial Equity Group. and co-sponsored by the Wellesley Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Task Force, Babson College, and the League of Women Voters of Wellesley. Closed captioning will be provided.
