Take the next step into racial reconciliation by building bridges across culture and race.
This course builds on the work of listening and storytelling from the 2016 Convention of the Episcopal Church in Minnesota. Meaningful steps toward dismantling racism start with understanding our own cultural lens and learning to listen deeply in relationship with others.
This course trains you to build your ability to recognize and reconstruct your own cultural and racial bias. Through the Intercultural Development Inventory assessment, learning plan and one-on-one coaching, you’ll gain increased awareness, understanding, and skills in navigating race and culture.
The course incorporates materials and mixed methodology for living effectively in cultural and racially diverse settings. The School for Formation offers this course through a partnership with Luther Seminary and Webb and Carroll Consultants. Richard Webb and Carrie Carroll of Luther Seminary offer this course out of their expertise and experience in helping Christian organizations improve cultural and racial competencies.
Required materials: The Wolf Shall Dwell with the Lamb by Eric Law.
