If you would like, we encourage you to participate in the series with a friend or as part of a group. Participating with others enriches the experience, and grounds your process in local community and/or relationships you already have. Please note that, even when participating as part of a group, each person needs to register independently for the series.

Planning to Join Live or Only Using Recordings?

White Awake has a limited number of logins for participants to join this course. The number of people who can participate via recordings is unlimited. If you plan to join even just one session live, please check the "Joining Live" box below. If you plan to ONLY use recordings, please check the box that says "Only Using Recordings". This allows us to maximize the number of registrants who have the option of joining live. If or when we reach capacity for live participantion, we will remove the joining live option. Thanks for your help! 

Please Note: Whether you are joining live or using recordings, all registrants will have the opportunity to join the White Awake Mighty Networks group for this course, where you can engage in virtual discussion and share resources and experiences with one another. 

Attending Live Sessions: Zoom registration & Ground Rules

Completing and submitting this form registers you for the series, however in order to attend live sessions you will need to apply for a personal login to the Zoom video conferencing meeting we'll use for the course. We apologize for the extra step, but doing this ensures that we have access to online break out rooms (for intimate, small group discussion) and a secure container for our live session work (by ensuring that only registered participants can join the meeting).

You will receive a link to the logistics page for the course - which includes all the instructions you need to apply for a login to join sessions live - in your confirmation email for the series.

Before applying for a personal login, we ask that you read and agree to our ground rules for live session participation. These ground rules are designed to nurture a supportive, constructive learning environment for everyone who attends.

As explained in the ground rules, these meetings will be held as a caucus for white men and/or anyone exploring both masculinity and whiteness as parts of their identity. To learn more about the usefulness of caucusing, see this post by Justin C. Cohen which can be applied to both racial and gender-based caucusing. If you have additional questions not answered in our "Course Intention & Ground Rules" document, please reach out:
