THE IDR
TRANSFORMATIONAL
PROCESS
 
rather than just a training experience. We use our
trainings as starting points for institutions as they
embark on a journey of transformation toward an
anti-racist, multicultural identity.

Whether your organization starts with a short
introduction session, a one-day workshop, or the
2.5 day training, you will be asked to start the
process of organizing within your institution. This
phase requires a strategic plan to expose key
people within the institution to the analysis, as well
as other staff, in order to build a critical mass
ready to support the transformation process.
Depending on several factors, this process can take
several months.

Once this goal has been accomplished, the
institution is ready to form an anti-racism team
that will lead the internal institutional
transformation process. In order to be effective,
the team needs to have the full support of the
institution's leadership manifested in the allocation
of a budget, as well as the authority, to carry out its
functions.

It is important to understand that the culture of
any institution was built over the many years the
organization has been in existence, thus the work
of transforming its culture can not be
accomplished in a short time. To this end,
institutions are encouraged to create 20 to 30
year-plans in order to accomplish the goal of
becoming an inclusive, anti-racist, and
multicultural organization.

Finally, since organizations vary greatly in terms of
history, size, leadership structure and culture, the
transformational process will also vary based on
those factors. In other words, not every
transformation process will look exactly the same;
each institution will be guided in a process
specifically tailored to its needs and idiosyncrasies.

process and IDR's relationship to the institutional
