Difficult Conversations About Race and Gender

How to develop the right mindset, skillset, and learning environment for change

We are living in a charged environment and many people are engaging in difficult conservations about race and gender. While hashtags and book lists have been widely shared on social media, individuals with good intentions may feel uncomfortable admitting their discomfort and their fear of saying or doing the wrong thing. This may limit their ability to participate in the meaningful introspection and discussion necessary to ensure we all move forward in a positive way.

To support those interested in starting the journey towards open conversations about race and gender, we have curated a Learning Journey housed in a private, individually accessible online learning management system. The asynchronous content and self-paced format provide a safe space for exploring this sensitive topic. The journey features game-like modules, which once completed, allow the learner to progress to the next level. This Learning Journey offers lessons in perspective taking, bias, privilege, and more - leading the way towards understanding and engaging in difficult conversations.
