Community Workshop Series on Workplace Equity and Justice

About the Workshops | Registration

Justice Outside is proud to make an online workshop series on racial equity and justice accessible to our community. Offered through our Training and Support program, which has worked with dozens of organizations around the country to advance racial justice and equity at workplaces, for the first time, our workshops are available to both individuals and organizations.

These sessions are for you if you are interested in building your capacity to address issues of equity and justice within your workplace or if you want additional resources to support you in advancing racial justice and equity in the greater outdoor and environmental space. You can sign up for individual sessions or for the whole series. Please share this professional development opportunity with your team members and invite folks to consider which topics might make sense for your team as a whole or individual members of the team. We look forward to working together.
