Workshop: Facilitating conversations for an anti-racist workplace

April 15, 2022  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

This workshop is open to faculty and staff who are managers and supervisors.

This program is a “video-on,” interactive session that will include small group breakout sessions.

In this session, managers and supervisors will learn and practice an approach to use a guiding template for facilitating 15-minute anti-racism discussions with their team. We will also share a plan on how to begin conversations on sensitive topics and view a conversation in action.

You will learn to:

  • Strengthen facilitation skills for short discussions on sensitive topics using a one-page meeting template with their team
  • Advance their self-confidence as a facilitator for anti-racism discussions

You will benefit by:

  • Improving facilitation skills that support brief discussions on sensitive topics
  • Learning how to create an inclusive, safe environment for discussions
  • Having a plan for what you’ll do if tensions arise

Multiple online offerings:

April 25: Noon – 1:30 p.m.

May 19: 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m.
