Application closed. Check back in early 2022 for the Spring cohort!

Are you a professional, volunteer or board member in the non-profit sector? Are you looking to learn more about how to incorporate an anti-racist lens to the work or volunteering you do? Want to connect with other inspiring folks that are looking to decolonize the non-profit sector? If you answered "yes" (or "YES!") to those questions, the Agents of Change Cohort is calling your name!

Agents of Change is a cohort-based program that will go through 8 virtual sessions on Tuesdays from 3-5p pst September - November 2021. Program topics range from implicit bias, the non-profit industrial complex, to volunteer engagement with an anti-racist lens. Sessions will include team building, in-depth discussions, and interactive activities on unlearning norms and practices rooted in white supremacy within the non-profit sector. The program will be facilitated by Seattle Works staff as well as guest speakers.

Here are the dates and topics:
- Week 1 Tues. 9/14: Orientation & team building
- Week 2 Tues. 9/21 : Building Blocks: Intersectionality & Anti-Racism
