Tell Me The Truth: a Learning Opportunity
Today we want to pass along this opportunity to you; it's called "Tell Me the Truth: Exploring the Heart of Cross-Racial Conversations." Shay Stewart-Bouley (aka Black Girl in Maine) and Debby Irving (author of Waking Up White) will address this question: "How can we speak openly and honestly in cross-racial conversations? What would such a conversation even look like?" They will do this by: 1. Sharing racism’s "impact on their lives and how cross-racial conversation has been instrumental in their own understanding of 21st-century racial dynamics," 2. Exploring the "common fears and pitfalls of cross-racial conversation that keep people isolated in their own racial groups, at the expense of personal, professional, and societal growth," 3. Helping audience members "understand how interpersonal social patterns hinder organizations from living up to their own ideals for diversity," and 4. Offering suggestions to "create racial justice habits that can move us from isolated events to sustainable connections." We can't wait to see you there! *Please note that this is a paid event. Tickets are $14.99.
