Presented by: CHARLOTTE HUGHES
The BRAVE acronym offers a starting point for conversations about race and racism at work. Throughout 2020 and the first seven months of 2021, there have been strong calls for organizations to join the movement in the fight against racial injustice and for racial equality, and many have started to answer this call. Although many see the value in addressing race and racism in organizations, it can be difficult to have conversations about these topics in the workplace.
Please join diversity and inclusion expert Charlotte F. Hughes, Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Inclusive Leaders Group, LLC, a Jacksonville FL firm as she discusses the importance of explicitly talking about race in the workplace and provide advice on how to begin productive conversations. Charlotte will discuss factors to consider when planning these conversations, such as audience, timing, and purpose, as well as how to structure, facilitate, and navigate a conversation about race. She will provide tips on how to have brave conversations that address tense aspects of race as a way to build competency around what inclusion really looks like in organizations.
BRAVE Workplace Conversations About Race and Inclusion is a course within Inclusive Leadership Group’s EFFECTIVE WORKPLACE CONVERSATIONS SUITE – workshops, town halls, speaking engagements and Train-the-Trainer sessions for organizations and groups.
