Power, Privilege, Race, and Racism and Their Impact on the Supervisory Relationship

June 12 - 6 hour Workshop

Chiku Malunga said, “when people come to work, they come with their full personhood”(2009).   In this workshop participants will explore what constitutes one’s “full personhood”, and how systemic racism has created barriers that devalue and dismiss the strengths, skills, and experiences that BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) folk possess and prevent them from fully utilizing their authentic selves in their work. Using Dr. Kenneth V. Hardy’s Privilege And Subjugated Task (PAST) Model, participants will examine specific actions that are critical to developing one’s ability to recognize, acknowledge, and discuss issues of race, privilege, and power as they relate to the supervisory relationship.

In 2017, driven by her passion for organizational development and efficiency, Tracey founded TRS Consulting Group, LLC to guide individuals, non-profits, social enterprises, and government entities to ensure they remain mission driven, culturally responsive, and effective. In 2021 she launched the African Centered Leadership Project focused on developing the skills and talents of leaders of color and those aspiring to lead. Tracey completed the National Association of Black Social Workers’ Nea Onnim Circle for African Centered Social Work, and Undoing Racism® by The People’s Institute for Survival and Beyond. It was through these courses that Tracey really began to understand how deeply systemic racism and oppression impact people and communities of color in the United States and abroad. She is commited to helping organizations and individuals understand what it means to be anti-racist, and how they can shift their thinking and practice to truly provide equitable opportunities and programs.
