Starting with the foundational agreement that systemic bias is an everyone, every day, institutionalized problem, this workshop will explore what it means as individuals to contribute to a solution – day to day, minute by minute, situation by situation. Through broadening the definition of woke, you will leave this workshop with tangible and individualized big and small actions, thought processes, and mindsets which will enable you to be part of progress toward a diverse, inclusive, equitable, accessible, positive, productive, and impactful workplace and society for everyone.

This presentation will review the initial work that Camp Fire Alaska has completed along the journey towards ensuring diversity, equity, and inclusivity in our work. Though we will focus on the past 5 years, historical highlights and learning moments will also be presented. Attendees will leave with recommended strategies and tools for addressing systemic bias within organizations of all shapes and sizes.
