Do Better Together: Addressing Racial Bias With Volunteers
Join MAVA for the first of a 3-part series called "Do Better Together" where we will facilitate conversations around important topics in equity in volunteerism. July's conversation will be held at Cookie Cart in St. Paul, where we will learn from their Volunteer Manager about she orients volunteers and addresses racial bias with volunteers of all backgrounds. The presentation will be followed by a participant discussion around the topics of:
- How do volunteer managers address racial bias with current volunteers as we work to engage a more racially diverse volunteer base?
- How do organizations address volunteer orientation when volunteers are starting at very different places with their understanding and lived experiences around racial bias?
- How do we have conversations with volunteers about inappropriate or culturally insensitive actions?
- Other topics around equity in volunteerism - the group will determine the course of the conversation.
This is a free event. Please RSVP to help us plan the event set-up.
MAVA will be announcing the second and third events in this series soon!
