Learn the art and science of effective communication in conversations about race.
A separate training in this educational series on racial inequity dialogue explored why conversations about racial inequity and bias can be so challenging, and now this session will help you to identify the root source of your discomfort and understand why a wide range of emotions in such moments is natural. In this workshop series, we will therefore examine historic and current roadblocks to true connection, barriers that can lead to distrust, and how we engage unconsciously with individuals based on their visible or assumed social identities. We will also explore how racial power dynamics influence everyday interactions and identify ways to challenge entrenched norms that influence how we choose to communicate and engage with each other.
Who should attend?
This workshop series is designed for higher-ed professionals across all levels and functional areas who are a) seeking an opportunity for self-development, and b) committed to supporting the advancement of diversity and inclusivity efforts on their campus.
