Announcing:
Race Equity with Whitney Knox Lee, Esq. and Milo Primeaux, Esq.

 

Let's do race equity! We're proud to present this interactive two-part workshop on the 7 Keys for Anti-Racist Supervision.
In our first 90 minutes together we'll talk about the myths that sustain white supremacy, how white dominant cultures pervade our workplaces, and what you can do to create a more equitable workplace culture.
In the second 90 minute block we’ll help you to be a more inclusive supervisor.  We'll spend time on critical feedback -- how to give it to someone else who says or does something racist, and how to receive it when we are the ones who cause harm.
No matter where you are starting from, we want everyone to leave this session more curious, confident, and ready to put the 7 Keys to work!

Additional Sessions include:
Core Duties of Legal Aid Supervisors­ This session provides an overview of the multidimensional role of the legal services supervisor, and the importance of making the time for intentional and proactive supervision. It introduces the many opportunities for supervision skill‐building that this training offers through.

Supervision Systems– This session will provide an overview of a comprehensive and intentional supervision system. We will discuss the importance of intentional supervision and review the components of a supervision system that will build strength in your unit and program and help ensure quality legal work is provided to clients.  The challenges of supervising remotely will be considered as aspects of quality systems are reviewed. 

Retaining a Quality Staff and Building a Culture of Professional Development
This session will be a moderated panel discussion of two experienced and two newer legal aid supervisors touching on the necessary ingredients to help retain staff once you have invested the time and effort into training them. The panel will touch on how retention begins with the hiring process and aligning new staff with the goals of the organization; the importance of transparency in supervision and program activities, secondhand trauma and the awareness of the difficulties of legal aid work, creating leadership opportunities, formal and informal, and how all of these issues tie into other important topics that will be covered throughout this training.
