हमारे मिशन का अभिन्न अंग, नस्लवाद को खत्म करना हम जो करते हैं उसका हिस्सा है। नागरिक अधिकारों के आंदोलन से दशकों पहले 1940 में वापस डेटिंग - YWCA चार्लेस्टन ने अपने निदेशक मंडल में एक महिला को रंग दिया, और अलगाव की निंदा करते हुए एक आधिकारिक घोषणा जारी की। दशकों से, हमारे काम ने कई रूप ले लिए हैं, जिनमें प्रशिक्षण, अनुसंधान और चेतना बढ़ाने वाली घटनाएं शामिल हैं। कई वर्षों से, हमारे पास कान्हा काउंटी की अदालतों में काम करने वाले एक नस्लीय न्यायिक अधिवक्ता हैं, जो घरेलू हिंसा के पीड़ितों को कानून के तहत समान उपचार और सुरक्षा प्रदान करना सुनिश्चित करते हैं। 2017 में, YWCA चार्लेस्टन ने YWCA USA के स्टैंड अगेंस्ट रेसिज्म अभियान के संयोजन में आयोजित अपनी उद्घाटन रेस टू एंड रेसिज्म का शुभारंभ किया। हमारी नस्लीय न्याय समिति द्वारा निर्देशित, विभिन्न धर्मों, नस्लों, नस्लों, उम्र, सामाजिक-आर्थिक स्थितियों और व्यवसायों के सदस्यों से युक्त, YWCA चार्लेस्टन भागीदारों और सामाजिक न्याय संगठनों के एक व्यापक स्पेक्ट्रम के साथ काम करता है, जिस तरह से नस्लवाद के कपड़े फाड़ रहा है। हमारे परिवार और समुदाय।

Exploring Implicit Bias in the Workplace Session

Exploring Implicit Bias in the Workplace will aid you in taking the first step in building an inclusive work culture.  This discussion starts with understanding Implicit Bias and introduces actionable ways to become an ally.

Unpacking Hidden Prejudice Session

Participants will be able to define common vocabulary that promotes dialogue around equity and inclusion, develop an awareness of the levels of racism, identify historic and current examples of the levels of racism, understand how the past impacts the present and why knowledge of the past can change the future, and identify ways to become an ally personally and professionally.

Meaningful Allyship helps participants recognize what specific actions they can take to show up as allies. Through individual explorations and group discussions, participants develop a shared understanding of allyship and prepare to take action in ways that center impact.

Understanding Privilege Session

In this session, participants will explore the concept of privilege, how it shapes societal cultures that are oppressive to people with marginalized identities, and develop an awareness of the privileges & and discriminations of different social groups & and identities - all to improve personal growth.

Acting with Intent Session

With the use of moving stories from the film: Cracking the Codes: The System of Racial Inequity,  we lead into group discussion and open dialogue about personal encounters and discuss possible ways we could have handled situations differently or hoped for different outcomes.

"I wanted to take a moment to extend my gratitude to you for the training you did for Mission West Virginia this week.  This was our first formal all staff training on Diversity and Inclusion and you certainly helped us increase our skills and knowledge and open our minds to recognize bias in order to better serve and achieve that lofty vision we have.  I see this as an entry opportunity for further growth and feel our organization is ready.  From all those I heard from, they want more, and we hope to have you back as soon as we can gather as a whole again."

"Thank you for the amazing training series. My staff truly enjoyed the information presented at both the unit retreats and the program in service. It has sparked some great conversations and reflection for us all." 

I have worked at many different organizations, this has honestly been the best series I have attended in 30+ years of working. I enjoyed the discussions, the slides and teaching methods “spoke to me”. Very well done! Thank you!
