Attendees will learn how to communicate successfully and courageously about race in the workplace. 

Do you avoid conversations about race? Ever imagine that conversation going bad? Or question whether you're prepared for the conversation? Well, the truth is you're not alone, as a matter of fact most people avoid talking about race in the US and all around the world. A 2020 Society for Human Resource Management survey of U.S. workers and human resource professionals found that 37% of both white and Black workers felt uncomfortable having discussions about racial issues at work. The survey also showed that 45% of Black workers and 30% of white workers said their organizations discourage discussions on racism and social justice. Those days are over!

 In the Winning Conversations talk participants will discover how to communicate successfully, confidently, and courageously about race in the workplace.
