Event Details

The Level Lunch & Learn Workshop Series is a continuation of our March 2019 Level Conversation. Beginning with emotional intelligence, the workshop topics will take a deeper dive into this important conversation by providing interactive training around organizational and individual cultural competence, true inclusion, and strategies to implement organizational change.


This session will explore why having real and meaningful conversations about race and racism is so difficult in our society. Conversations about race and racism can trigger all kinds of emotions and people can get frustrated and defensive. In this session, we will explore some ways to engage in meaningful and productive dialogue across race. We will look at some of the topics in the book "White Fragility" by Robin Diangelo, Ph.D. and work on building our capacity for dialogue in the on-going work towards social justice.
