B2: Five Shifts for Organizational Transformation

Area of Focus: Advancing Equity
Key 9

Addressing complex challenges of oppression and structural inequity requires that we initiate on a journey of healing and transformation. In this session you will learn five compelling shifts that are the cornerstones to approaching meaningful change. The Five Shifts for Transformation are essential in creating an organizational culture of belonging and oneness. These shifts, such as moving from your head to your heart, are the catalyst for changing our thinking and finding solutions to difficult racial and inequitable thoughts and systems. Participants will learn the shifts and how to apply them to their own personal transformation and to help their organizations transform through an equity lens.
