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.

The event has now past but you can read more about it here.
