      Race: The Power of an Illusion (RPI) Learning Exchange

      RPI is a 1-day learning exchange that brings together professionals, volunteers, and community members to have conversations about the intersections of race, equity and child welfare. The purpose of RPI is to build capacity to reduce disproportionality and disparity in the Iowa child welfare system by providing participants with a safe environment in which to explore and challenge their own beliefs and attitudes about race, to practice better ways of talking to one another about sensitive topics, and to begin to have courageous con-versations with one another about how the notion of race affects our attitudes, beliefs and behaviors. Defined as a learning exchange, rather than as a training, RPI is both a guided educational experience which uses a standard curriculum and a facilitated discussion that encourages and supports participants’ active involvement in the learning exchange. A team of intensively-trained facilitators with a background in child welfare, and commitment to eliminating disproportionality in the Iowa child welfare system, lead the learning exchange There is no fee to attend this workshop. Lunch will be provided. All registered attendees will receive a certificate of attendance. IBON provider #94 has approved 5.2 Nursing Credits for full attendance. The curriculum meets the requirements for the award of 6.0 SW CEUs & 5.0 foster parent training credit hours.
