Courageous Conversation is a powerful, personally transforming, one-day seminar that helps leaders, employees, and organizations understand the impact of race on their lives, their work, and their overall growth and development. Interactive and stirring exercises strengthen participants’ critical consciousness of race and lead them to investigate the role that racism plays in institutionalizing achievement disparities. Most importantly, it models and teaches a protocol for discussing race in ways that are productive, insightful, and generative.
We cannot solve the problems created by systemic racism without discussing race. Courageous Conversation enables individuals to deepen their understanding of racial equity by imparting a method for connecting and communicating.
