2021 21 Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge: Day 1.

Posted on September 6, 2021

Welcome to Day 1! 

This September’s challenge has been curated by the IATSE Training and Education Department, in collaboration with the IATSE Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee. This challenge is Labor-focused, reminding us that Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging are Union Issues.

Each day there are choices – you can do them all, or choose one to do. The point of these challenges is for all of us to make a habit of furthering our understanding of power, privilege, racism, exclusion, and equity.

We encourage everyone to participate: you can learn individually, and also share your experience with others. Share this challenge with your crew and co-workers!
