Let’s Talk… Conversations on Race, Equity, & Belonging
January 20 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm EST
About this event
There is still SO MUCH to talk about when it comes to systemic racism and often times there is not a safe space with which to have these conversations, ask questions, self reflect, learn from others and identify the next action step.
Let’s Talk…Conversations about Race, Equity & Belonging is a SAFE space for all colors, all races, and all ethnicities in which to grow ourselves and our community to create a more inclusive world.
We ask that you come to the conversation with:
- An open heart
- An open mind
- Respect for others
- Confidentiality – when in small breakout groups.
Gandhi said it best when he said:
“Be the change you wish to see in the world”.
This platform is an opportunity for all of us to be the change!
So, Let’s Talk… and then TAKE ACTION!
Join us every month as we will discuss various topics as it relates to systemic racism, identity, equity, and belonging. We will have guest facilitators, panelists, speakers, along with breakout rooms for more meaningful and intimate discussion and connection.
In November we will discuss what it takes to be an Ally for marginalized identities.
Hear from incredible experts on their experiences not only being an ALLY but an Accomplice in supporting the representation of voices and positions in the workplace and beyond.
Join us for our next conversation “DEI UNFILTERED” where you will hear from experts on strategies that can help support you in this space.
