An antiracism course co-facilitated by Julie Kratz and Ericka Young. 

This online program is approved for 6 professional development credits toward SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP recertification.

Over the course of 6 modules, Ericka and Julie will help you unpack and develop as an ally in your personal and professional life.  

This course is offered as a self-paced, online program OR you can join the facilitators throughout the year with our hybrid cohort option. The past few years have been ones of amplified conversations and unlearning. With the movements around racial justice and subsequent pushback on DEI and affirmative action programs, many people are finding themselves seeking education and help with unlearning their learned behaviors.  Necessary conversations have been sparked around racial injustice and inequity, and those must continue.

You may be wondering things like: 

“How do I continue to show up in this conversation?”

“How can I be an ally to communities of color?”

“I want to be a part of positive change, but I’m not sure where to start.”

If this is you or you are hearing these questions from your team, Julie and Ericka Young have a six-module training program to help navigate racism as an ally. The Unpacking Racism program helps allies in training to:  

Recognize systemic racism in your professional life

Use your privilege as a chance to be an ally for others

Lead inclusively in today’s polarized environment

Build an inclusive workplace where diversity thrives

Create space for others through candid conversations

Practice finding comfort through discomfort

What is included in the program?


  • Ericka and Julie will lead participants through 6 modules of 40 minute videos sharing robust anti-racism content and actionable tools. The content is also available for podcast style listening.

Being an ally is a journey, and you do not have to do it alone. At Next Pivot Point, we believe in the power of allies.  There has never been a better time to lead like an ally.
