ABOUT THIS EVENT

This webinar session focuses on defining equity and examining actionable steps toward inclusive practices. The presenter will briefly review relationships between equity and recovery and facilitate a space for open and productive dialogue that honors the narratives of people experiencing marginalization in recovery spaces. Throughout the session, participants will discuss the barriers to talking about equity and recovery and will have the opportunity to lean into and practice authentic equity-focused conversations. In this session, we acknowledge that systemically marginalized communities continue to demonstrate their strength and resilience and we take accountability to make the critical culture shift necessary to reduce harm, starting with identifying the sources of oppression.
