The PMB Phytograds Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Team and PMB Graduate Program invite you to participate in the 21-Day Racial Equity Challenge. For 21 days, do one action to further your understanding of power, privilege, supremacy, oppression, and equity. This is accomplished through reading, listening, and watching various resources, and then discussing in a group. Read more about the 21-Day Racial Equity Challenge.
GOAL: Do something EACH day for 21 days and reflect on it. The aim is education and exploration.
Participants commit to:
Step 1 - Follow the list of daily activities. If you have already done an activity, select a different similar activity from the list of resources on the 21-Day Challenge website.
Step 2 - Set aside a little time each day to commit to the challenge.
Step 3 - Record a reflection each day.
Step 4 - Participate in the three weekly discussions with a small group.
Dates: February 5 – 26
Group meeting dates: Fridays at 9:00 a.m. or 3:00 p.m. on February 12, 19, and 26
Weekly discussions are centered on:
week 1 – reaction to the activities
week 2 – observing our environment and reflecting on events in our lives that we are seeing in a different light after 14 days
week 3 – how to engage and act in the future
2021 schedule & activities
Choose one of the activities for each day—or do them both. Or, if you have already watched, read, or listened to a piece, select something of your own from the options on the 21-Day Racial Equity Challenge website or other sources.
Write a brief reflection each day. What are you seeing and thinking after each activity? What did you find yourself reflecting on?
