Institute for Dismantling Racism Training

February 28 - March 2


The Institute for Dismantling Racism (IDR) is facilitating a 2.5 day training from Thursday, February 28 to Saturday, March 2. The IDR training is particularly helpful for persons who care about the role racism plays in institutions and what it means to lead institutions towards the dismantling of racist structures. The training event is Thursday evening, all day Friday, and all day Saturday. Tuition is ordinarily $350 person, BUT the School of Divinity has free spaces for interested students. Please let John Senior know if your interested. More information for the general public is below.


The Institute for Dismantling Racism, Inc. (IDR), is hosting an anti-racism training workshop in conjunction with the Wake Forest University School of Divinity. The IDR training prepares leaders to respond to issues of institutionalized racism in governmental, religious, educational, or other community-based organizations. The IDR is a group of institutions and coalitions dedicated to fostering the development of institutional anti-racist culture and identity, by organizing, by educating and by challenging the status quo of the racial inequities that exist in society.

The purpose of this anti-racism gathering is to provide an introductory process for participants from Wake Forest University and the wider community to explore and deepen their understanding of systemic racism and to begin to investigate ways to more effectively dismantle racism.  

Cost to the general public is $350, which covers the cost of the program, materials, breakfast, lunch, and refreshments. A limited number of scholarships are available to students, faculty, and staff of the Wake Forest community. For more information about scholarships, please contact the Office of Diversity and Inclusion at  336 758.3824.
