|Max number of participants:||40|
This workshop provides a very unique and rare opportunity to have a necessary conversation about race and racism. Particularly, this discussion is designed to accommodate educators and other professionals to have thought provoking, honest, empowering conversations that address our issues relating to race and other topics that naturally arise when having this discussion. What are your experiences based on your racial identity? How do you experience the world as a white person, as a person of color? What insight, information would be useful to you to connect with people who have a different racial identity than yourself? Can we share our truth and still be friends, keep our jobs and maintain our professional relationship? The presenter will set the stage so that the participants feel a sense of freedom and comfort to share their experiences, challenges and solutions for a more inviting campus and welcoming community. Participants will be encouraged to talk about their personal experiences as well as their a-ha moments. This is a dialogue that is sure to awaken us and enhance our personal growth in our journey for a better America.
