Thursday, September 14, 2023


1:00 - 3:30 EST




Online (Zoom)


This interactive online session is designed as a space to support men in building healthier workplace culture in the construction/design industry. Through presentation and dialogue, patriarchal and toxic habits will be discussed, including their root causes, net effects, and how to change them. Participants will leave the workshop inspired with ideas, tips, and tools for how to positively impact work culture. This workshop will be led by social justice educator, author and speaker Chris Crass.


Chris Crass is a longtime organizer, educator, and writer working to build powerful working class-based, feminist, multiracial movements for collective liberation. He is one of the leading voices in the country calling for and supporting white people to work for racial justice. Chris gives talks and leads workshops on campuses and with communities and congregations around the U.S. and world, to help support justice efforts.

Chris is the author of two books. His latest, Towards the "Other America:" Anti-Racist Resources for White People Taking Action for Black Lives Matter, a call to action to end white silence and a manual on how to do it. His other book, Towards Collective Liberation: Anti-Racist Organizing, Feminist Praxis, and Movement Building Strategy, draws from his nearly 30 years as an organizer and educator and offers a firsthand look at the challenges and opportunities of anti-racist work in white communities, feminist work with men, and bringing women of color feminism into the heart of social justice.
