    The NSGP Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee offers free weekly virtual check-ins open to the community, domestically and internationally. Every week we meet to explore our narratives, looking at how our identities and cultural backgrounds influence our responses to current events.

    We meet on Zoom on Thursdays, 12 - 12:45 pm Boston time.

    We have attendees joining us from various parts of the United States, as well as Panama, Sweden, Japan, Canada, and Germany.

    NSGP DE&I Committee started offering this forum in March when the pandemic hit. The current plan is to continue till at least the end of 2020. You can join for one or as many check-ins as you would want. If you are interested in attending, please email nsgpdi@gmail.com.

    NSGP Diversity & Inclusion Committee 

    Anti-racism Group Circle

    Me & White Supremacy

    (Second Offering)

    Purpose: A group of peers who benefit from white privilege coming together to examine their own internalized racism in order to create a safe, more just and equitable world for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC). Our intention is to provide a reflective space in which we come together in caring to share our truth, work beyond self-gain, and stay committed to asking questions to promote social justice and lifelong change. 

    Statement: We acknowledge that this will be hard and uncomfortable work. We commit to staying engaged with the process because we are driven by our values of equality and social justice. To do this work we will hold conversations that lead to “wise decisions and actions” and uphold the principle of “a leader in every chair.” We will come together as peers, not experts, and we will share our experiences equally, without hierarchy. 

    Who: A group of 10 people (max), open to NSGP Members and Non-Members. 

    Hosts: D & I Committee Members Amy Matias and Joel Krieg

    What: A meeting to work together through the workbook Me & White Supremacy, by Layla Saad, using The Circle Way (http://www.thecircleway.net/resources) as a structure for the group. (Participants will need to obtain a copy of Me & White Supremacy and purchase the Me & White Supremacy Workbook.)  There is not cost for this event.

    When: Mondays 11:00 am to 12:30 pm for 9 sessions starting April 5 and ending June 14, 2021. The group will not meet on April 12 or May 31.

    'Refer a New Member' Benefit

    We have an incentive for our current members to bring in new members.

    If a current member refers someone for membership, and the person enrolls as a member (by the end of the Conference) then the current member may attend the Sunday Day-Long Demonstration Group at no cost.

    By registering for this conference, you agree to the following:

    Effective group therapy training is best facilitated by both participation in a group led by experts and study of the resulting group process. While NSGP provides training groups rather than therapy groups, the experience can lead to difficult or uncomfortable feelings in the participants. Because they involve group participation, you should not register for an Experience Group or volunteer for the Demonstration Group if you prefer to avoid this risk. By registering or volunteering you acknowledge that you have been informed of this risk and consent to participate.
