Race matters, but few people want to or are able to discuss it in a direct, compassionate and sustainable manner. Communities throughout the country have had to acknowledge longstanding racial divisions. Racial disparity across a variety of social markers has increased the need to engage the topic of race. Too often these conversations are in reaction to racial incidents, lack transparency, and actually circumvent issues of race as central. What becomes possible when we intentionally and proactively develop the skill to engage and center race in such conversations in a manner that is authentic, compassionate, and generative? This course is designed for anyone who is interested in such a process and experience. Whether you are a parent, an educator, an activist or anyone in between seeking to address race more effectively in personal and professional contexts, Courageous Conversation (TM) is for you. Come join the conversation! Each session qualifies for 3.0 hours General CEUs, certificates available at class.
