Bringing Professionals Together

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

Monday, July 20, 2020 2:00pm - 3:00pm EDT  
Host: Association for Talent Development
By: Lee Mun Wah, Executive Director, StirFry Seminars and Consulting; Jim Peal, Founder, Leadership Development Group; and Aviva Wilcox, Intern, StirFry Seminars and Consulting; clinical psychologist, Mills College

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.
