Seattle Works Agents of Change Summer 2022 Cohort Application
Thank you for your interest in the Agents of Change cohort! This application will open on June 6th for the Summer 2022 cohort. See information below or visit

Are you a professional, volunteer, board member, or community member who's looking to create meaningful culture change in the non-profit sector? Are you looking to learn more about how to incorporate an anti-racist lens to the work or volunteering you do? Want to connect with other inspiring folks that are looking to decolonize and dismantle white supremacy norms in the non-profit sector? If you answered "yes" (or "YES!") to those questions, the Agents of Change Cohort is calling your name!

Seattle Works is launching this cohort-based program that will go through 8 virtual sessions on Wednesdays from 3-5 pm starting beginning of July (final session may be in person depending on cohort comfortability). Program topics range from implicit bias, the non-profit industrial complex, to volunteer engagement with an anti-racist lens. Sessions will include team building, in-depth discussions, and interactive activities on unlearning norms and practices rooted in white supremacy within the non-profit sector. The program will be facilitated by Seattle Works staff as well as guest speakers.

Here are the dates and topics:
- Week 1 Wed. 7/13: Orientation & team building
- Week 2 Wed. 7/20: Building Blocks: Intersectionality & Anti-Racism
- Week 3 Wed. 7/27: Hidden Biases (internalized/implicit racial bias)
- Week 4 Wed. 8/3: White-dominant Norms, Microaggressions and Calling In/Out
- Week 5 Wed. 8/10: Changing your Org Culture and Structure
- Week 6 Wed. 8/17: How to Incorporate Anti-Racism into Volunteering & Non-Profit Boards
- Week 7 Wed. 8/24: Advocacy engagement in the non-profit sector
- Week 8 Wed. 8/31: Beyond AoC & Un-graduation!

The program is free to anyone who identifies as BIPOC/PGM and is offered on a pay-what-you-can scale for anyone who identifies as white.

The application closes on Tuesday, June 28 at 11:59 pm. Applicants will be notified about acceptance by EOD Wednesday, July 6th. For those who are not accepted, we will be offering this program again in the Fall/winter of 2022. If you have any questions in the meantime, email
