Upcoming Events

Our Hour: Breaking Down Our Conditioning

Wednesday, May 31, 2023
3:30 p.m. Eastern / 12:30 p.m. Pacific

“White supremacy colonizes our minds, our bodies, our psyches, our spirits, our emotions… as well as the land and the water and the sky and the air we breathe. White supremacy tells us who has value, who doesn’t, what has value, what doesn’t in ways that reinforce a racial hierarchy of power and control that dis-eases and destroys all it touches.”

– Tema Okun, White Supremacy Culture

Join us on Wednesday, May 31 at 3:30 p.m. Eastern / 12:30 p.m. Pacific for a 90-minute town hall discussion featuring Cortez Washington, program manager at i.c.stars Milwaukee and host, editor, and producer of The Unapologetically Black Gaming Podcast. Together, we will show how we have been programmed to uphold and perpetuate certain white supremacy culture characteristics and find ways to shift and rewire hard-coded practices and patterns in our workplaces.

In order to maintain the integrity of this space, our sessions will not be recorded. In addition, we ask that all attendees have their cameras on when entering. If you can only join by audio or phone, please reach out to Sway in advance to discuss accommodation. Sharing this event with other BIPOC-identifying colleagues will assist in growing our Our Hour community.
