Meet Elizabeth Horlemann host of raceThink Round table Dinner events
Ms Horlemann, who is the host, founder and initiator of the raceThink Roundtable Dinner Events, is a certified trainer for intercultural communication, critical whiteness and country analysis training.
The training offers companies, institutions and individuals strategic methods to work effectively with diverse and inclusive teams.
Ms Horlemann believes that you can’t change what you don’t know, hence creating safe spaces for people to have uncomfortable discussions about racism over dinner.
Ms Horlemann’s newly designed holistic approach to critical whiteness training offers strategic methods that include knowledge, change and an implementation plan.
What are some of the topics that will be discussed?
Some of the key discussions that will take place are;
- Trying to understand where the theme of the strong, aggressive black women originated from and how this theme has impacted generations of black women both physically and mentally.
- The discussion will further try to come up with ways and ideas how the image of the strong aggressive black woman can be deconstructed and finding a healthy balance for the new age strong black woman.
- Other than that, they will also try and come up with ways how black women can prioritise self-care and self-love and how the white people can support healthy ideals for BIPOC women.
Victoria Nyanga Ndiaye, founder and CEO OF Project Esperanza, will be joining the event online. She will be talking about mental health issues that the myth of the strong aggressive black woman perpetuates.
Ms Horlemann will also be launching SANKOFA CRT Masterclass aimed at offering anti-racism workshops and mindset change workshops to create anti-racism working environments.
