Essential Practices of Equity and Agility

Now more than ever, the conversation about race, bias, and equity is on the top of our minds. Many of us are ready to enter the conversation and act on our desire to make a positive contribution. This online seminar offers learning, practice, and reflection to empower you to enter the conversation with confidence.

Learn tools and skills to:

  • Speak the language of equity and inclusion and understand its uses
  • Explore the common fears and questions that stop us from engaging
  • Be aware of our own biases, rank issues, and impacts and fears
  • Confidently and respectfully enter, engage, and contribute to the conversation
