Description

This half-day training will be a guided learning experience to build individual's confidence and strategies to stick with conversations that are uncomfortable or challenging in the workplace. We will use the intergroup dialogue process to sit with discomfort that is expected in diverse workgroups.

Who Should Attend

Individuals who want tools and practices to have cross cultural conversations that are mutually beneficial.

Learning Objectives

We begin with the premise that everyone has culture and we are going to work on the balance of navigating commonalities and difference across cultures.

Participants will be able to:

  • Explore tools and practices to remain curious and fight the tendency to judge and evaluate others
  • Engage in an intergroup dialogue process to practice listening, speaking and asking questions to achieve shared meaning
  • Examine different generational lenses across race and our intersecting social identities
