The training will be held on Tuesday, Feb. 7 from 9-9:30 a.m. It can be attended in person in the Truckee Town Council Chambers or on zoom.
Following the training, CCTT will host their February Resource Sharing Meeting. The meeting, Race and Equity 3 Part Training Series with Franklin Hysten, will be held from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.
During the session, attendees will develop common language of equity, inequity and the social identities that are targets and privileged by these dynamics, engage peers in a conversation that explores what gets in the way of implementation of our DEI vision, and develop language we can use at work to individually interrupt non-inclusive or oppressive language.
Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. Spanish interpretation will be offered on Zoom.
