Hosting book discussions and/or community conversations can be daunting when we are not equipped to manage certain aspects of a conversation. “How to Talk about Race” is a brief but insightful introduction to moderating discussions relating to race. Conversations about race are deeply personal and can be polarizing; the content we have created serves as a guide to navigate these discussions while maintaining a respectful environment. The purpose of this webinar is to walk away with applicable tools to utilize in book discussions and community conversations, learn how to establish ground rules for a group discussion, understanding an identity wheel and its purpose, and develop strategies for disruptive participants.
1) Understand the concepts of microaggressions & lived experiences, and how they can play a part in framing conversations
2) Learn how to manage group discussions relating to race
3) Explore strategies to navigate polarizing comments in a conversation/discussion
