Beyond a Service: Opportunities for Growth
Cohorts offer a space for 4 to 10 white participants to gain the foundational perspectives, knowledge, and skills necessary to embrace their role in anti-oppression. Cohorts meet for 4
2-hour long sessions. This model ensures a cohesive space to navigate the nuances of group questions. Members are introduced to the exclusive In.Visible Paradigms community on Slack and reunions in person.
Cohorts are for you if:
You want to ensure you have the fundamentals to identify and disrupt oppression within yourself and your community.
You hold both frustrations and curiosities about your privilege and are looking for a learning space that doesn’t feel overwhelming.
You are looking for community as part of your growth.
Frequently Asked Questions
Where do Cohorts Meet?
Why are some Cohorts divided by binary gender?
Currently, Cohorts are intentionally separated in order to address the intersections of race, sex, and gender specific to each group. The majority of participants identify as cis with few participants identifying as trans or gender non-binary. We recognize that this may create an unsafe environment for anyone identifying as trans, gender non-binary, gender non-conforming or still questionining. Our facilitators are accountible to interrupt cisheterosexism, transmisogyny, and all forms of interpersonal violence that occurs whether or not someone is in the room. If you have any questions or wish to talk, please feel free to schedule a Quick Chat with our Founder, Brenda.
How can I join a future Cohort?
Our Cohort dates are set in part with the facilitator's schedule and the average availability of the prospective participants. You can complete this Future Cohort Form to sign up for a future Cohort.
