RELC: Paternalism, Power Hoarding, and Individualism


March 22, 2019
9:00am - 11:30pm


Trinity Church
206 Clarendon Street
Boston, MA 02116

Join us on Friday, March 22nd, 9 am - 11:30 am (with time for breakfast at 8:30), for another Racial Equity Learning Community (RELC) Event! This year we are continuing our journey into Dismantling White Supremacy Culture (WSC). Each session of RELC we will be diving into a group of specific aspects of WSC. This session will focus on Paternalism, Power Hoarding and Individualism.

Together we will begin to identify the insidious ways that these aspects can work together and show up in your organizations. These aspects can be particularly harmful by creating an organizational culture in which people struggle to work effectively together as a cohesive team.

Registration is required for this event. The price is $20 for one person from an organization and $30 for two. If you have any questions, please email Rebecca Jackson at or Alicia Ridenour at

About the Racial Equity Learning Community

Our goal is to help create a community where organizations can come together and learn specific practices involved in being racially equitable, in such areas as hiring, fundraising, power structures, and program development/execution. Our intention is to create a space where we can build relationships and share promising practices and challenges freely and without judgment -- none of us are experts, and we can all learn from each other. There is tremendous power in shared learning and growth!
