It’s time to talk — and listen — about racial injustice. If you’re white, chances are you’ve been taught not to talk about race. If you’re a person of color, you may be wondering what it is that white colleagues aren’t (yet!) understanding. Join Debby Irving, author of Waking up White, and Finding Myself in the Story of Race, as she shares how her own white-skewed belief system enabled her to affirm harmful racial patterns for decades rather than question and dismantle them. Together, we will explore white privilege and our own, often subconscious, roles in perpetuating racism at the individual, interpersonal, institutional and cultural levels. The day will include time for reflection, dialog, and Q&A. Lunch provided, space is limited. THIS EVENT IS NOW FULL.
