VIRTUAL EVENT

Creating Space for Race-Based Discussions in the Workplace

JULY 01, 2020

Welcome

Given the current state of the pandemic, the blurring of society, work and personal boundaries, and heightened media attention to recent social unrest, corporations are challenged with responding sufficiently and appropriately to the needs of their employees.

As corporations are increasingly speaking out on race-based offenses, organizations are still unsure how to speak about race. In this broadcast, we will examine what businesses can do to equip senior leaders and mid-level managers for these critical but difficult conversations.

By attending this webcast, viewers will be able to:

  • Lower the barriers, impediments and risks that prevent managers from being willing to have difficult conversations about race;
  • Develop strategies for inquiry, deep listening, self-disclosure and managing feedback;
  • Understand the workplace, corporate and cultural policies, and status from perspectives of racial justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion
  • Identify specific diversity initiatives that communicators can take, working with senior leadership and HR teams, to better equip leaders for dialogue, difficult conversations, and learning; and
  • Identify steps and resources for independent learning about the workplace experience as it relates to diversity.

Who Should Attend: Chief Communication Officers and employee communication practitioners in all areas of corporate and organizational communication who would benefit from the information that can help them more effectively support employees during this difficult time.
