In our current political and racial climate, your role in supporting a multicultural client base and work community is both vital and challenging. Racism, oppression, and current events all shape the experiences of clients and colleagues, particularly those identified as people of color. Engaging one another in conversations about these critical topics is essential in supporting positive social change. Unfortunately, a range of barriers and challenges result in the avoidance of these conversations, reinforcing that conversations about racism and white privilege are not okay. In this interactive workshop we will engage an experiential learning process, facilitated group dialogue, and 1:1 practice of skills successfully navigate personal conversations around racism with one another and the clients you support.
