Supplemental Discussion to the YWCA Equity Challenge With MSBA DEI Director Erikka Ryan (Week Three, Option B)

Event Description

Must Sign up by June 20 for YWCA Challenge here:

*Please put your Bar Association (RCBA, HCBA, 7th District, etc.) under the Company/Organization box in the registration.

For 21 days, as part of the YWCA’s Racial Equity and Social Justice Challenge, you will receive a daily email on different topics and will be presented with challenges such as reading an article, listening to a podcast, reflecting on personal experience and more. Participation in an activity like this helps us to discover how racial injustice and social injustice impact our community, to connect with one another, and to identify ways to dismantle racism and other forms of discrimination. This is an exciting opportunity to dive deep into racial equity and social justice. We hope you will join us on this journey, and we can’t wait to get started!

To supplement your experience, Erikka Ryan, the MSBA, RCBA, and HCBA Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Director will be facilitating discussion/reflection/connection sessions around content twice a week for the 3 weeks of the challenge (Tuesdays, 12-1 & Thursdays 4:30-5:30). We hope you will take this opportunity to share your experiences, meet accountability partners, and to talk about ways to implement the tools you are gaining. Participants in this challenge are invited to attend one discussion session a week (3 total).
