Join us April 22 for the next event in our Many Threads, One Fabric series, "Courageous Conversation: the Art of Listening, Mercy and Change" a special webinar with Chuck Wilson.
This urgent moment -- sparked by the three words “I can’t breathe” during a global pandemic -- demands that we confront the underlying root: racism.
Webinar participants will:
- learn more about the essential art of change as we fight to address the attitudinal and structural barriers behind the persistent racial disparities witnessed in our communities and workplaces
- gain insight into the art of listening
- understand the role that having mercy, compassion and forgiveness play in the process; and
- learn techniques to de-escalate the anger, frustration and pain you may face in the process.
We have no choice.
