How to Talk About Race in the Workplace

Everyone around the country is talking about race. The problem is that few are talking about how to talk about race. These conversations are challenging because they are deeply emotional and trigger strongly held beliefs about identity and fairness. The risks of failing to have these conversations in a respectful way can have profound consequences throughout the workplace, leading to issues with morale, group cohesion, and, in serious cases, employee retention.  Come learn about how we can talk about this sensitive topic without hostility and offense and how we can turn our passion into persuasion to make positive changes in our workplace.
