Have you or anyone in your organization wondered how to start a safe and healthy conversation on Racism, Anti-Racism, Microaggressions, Unconscious Biases, and Discrimination safely and effectively?
If yes, then join this conversation because you are not alone. No matter your race or ethnicity or your cultural background, any discussion about Racism is uncomfortable and awkward at best. And these conversations can be a breeding ground of anger and denial when approached with guilt or blame. In this session, we are going to talk about how to start this dialogue with confidence. You will be given at least one way to begin these critical conversations that are necessary and essential to the survival of every organization in these challenging times. Please note: This is not about political correctness - this is about having the heart and caring to talk about Racism.
