    • Lift up the needs of children, youth, and adults of color and their families and identify supports that should be part of a changed culture;
    • Examine power, both formal and informal, in their professional setting;
    • Identify points of influence and learn how to effectively use power to create culture change;
    • Consider leadership structures and configurations in Unitarian Universalist congregations and identify ways to work collaboratively with other leaders in creating culture change within a variety of different structures and contexts; and
    • Affirm and support religious educators in their central role in bringing about positive culture change in congregations and in the UUA.
