A Path Toward Equity: Disrupting Structural Racism through Awareness and Belonging

The goal of the Path Toward Equity training is to offer foundational diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) training for all Washington State cabinet agency employees. Intentionally starting with race, these classes will allow all employees to gain awareness of racial inequalities and their effects. These foundational classes are focused on the emerging levels of competency, providing shared language and awareness of how racial inequities show up in every system and workplace in Washington.

Module 3 – Feeling Like an Outsider: The Cost of Being Othered, a virtual instructor-led training

This module will introduce the learners to the concept of othering. By examining the lived experience of an individual being othered, the course will explore origins of othering behavior and the negative impacts othering has on all groups.

Please note the training schedule for Module 3 – Feeling Like an Outsider is available for viewing purposes only. This course is available for registration within the Washington State Learning Center after Module 2 – Racism as a Structure is completed.

Please contact your training manager or Washington State Learning Center (WSLC) administrator for assistance.
