Let's Get Real: How to Have Authentic and Transformative Conversations about Racism

July 20, 2020 • 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

There is so much that is unspoken in this country about race issues, and it has spilled onto our streets and into our workplaces and communities. Throughout this webcast, we will explore and model how to have this dialogue on race and racism in a way that will lead to more intimate and honest conversations and relationships with one another through mindful techniques. We will confront some of the issues that keep us from talking to one another. We'll discover new ways to begin that conversation—creating a bridge to talk about our differences and exploring what opens us up and what closes us down.
