The Onion Dialogues TM is racial equity and diversity training and a social justice workshop that calls participants in—rather than calling them out.
Digging into such diversity, equity, inclusion topics as vocabulary, history, and microaggressions, the experience helps to reveal racial inequities, offers participants an opportunity to reflect on what may be a new reality for them, and then to determine their role in working for racial justice at the individual, interpersonal, organizational, and societal levels.
The program helps participants ask "what does racial equity mean?" while exploring relatable examples of equity, racial justice, anti-racism.
Trainers Tamara Copeland and Amy Owen live in the Greater Washington D.C., Maryland, Virginia area and offer this two-day program in person and virtually.
Like an onion, exploring racial inequities is a process that must be peeled back a layer at a time.
