20 Oct Advisor Aries Wilson to be featured in Let’s Talk… Conversations on Race, Equity, & Belonging
About this event
There is still SO MUCH to talk about when it comes to systemic racism and oftentimes there is not a safe space with which to have these conversations, ask questions, self-reflect, learn from others and identify the next action step.
Let’s Talk…Conversations about Race, Equity & Belonging is a SAFE space for all colors, all races, and all ethnicities in which to grow ourselves and our community to create a more inclusive world.
We ask that you come to the conversation with:
- An open heart
- An open mind
- Respect for others
- Confidentiality – when in small breakout groups.
Gandhi said it best when he said:
“Be the change you wish to see in the world”.
This platform is an opportunity for all of us to be the change!
So, Let’s Talk… and then TAKE ACTION!
Join us every month as we will discuss various topics as it relates to systemic racism, identity, equity, and belonging. We will have guest facilitators, panelists, speakers, along with breakout rooms for more meaningful and intimate discussion and connection.
In October, we will discuss Diversity, Equity, Inclusion (DEI) UNFILTERED!
Even with the best of intentions, when it comes to DEI it is not always making the impact that we would like. We are seeing “check the box” DEI, 1 and done trainings, DEI officers only staying for 2 years and BIPOC still not feeling safe in the workplace.
How do we make more of an impact in DEI so that BIPOC and other marginalized identities feel safe, feel like they belong, and are valued for who they are?
How do we value difference, acknowledge, affirm and act?
Join us for our next conversation “DEI UNFILTERED” where you will hear from experts on strategies that can help support you in this space.
