A Collective Response to Workplace Divisions and Oppression

Workplace bullying has negative effects not just on the targeted individual – it can lead to a culture of fear and retaliation and a decline in employee morale. In this interactive workshop we’ll learn the perspectives and tools needed to develop our collective courage to overcome divisions at our work sites and build unity and respect among coworkers. The course will be facilitated by professional trainer and coach, Joe Fahey, former President of Teamsters Local 912 who is featured in the book White Men Challenging Racism.
