About the event
Why is this important: There are several common themes the presenters have stressed during this year- long series and this is your opportunity to watch the team bring these threads together. How should those running events, classroom discussions, and workplace talks prepare to engage on a number of these hard conversations? What skills will help the most when engaging with those who are irate, upset, and frustrated?
Program overview: This program will draw from the book, How to Engage in Difficult Conversations on Identity, Race, and Politics in Higher Education, to better prepare teachers, faculty, administrators, and human resources to engage in these difficult conversations more effectively. This panel discussion will draw from lessons learned from the entire series and share their experience in hosting this series. Time will be allotted for questions and answers on topics across the entire series. Presenters will share their perspective on the topics covered throughout the series including Black Lives Matter, firearms, defund the police, reproductive rights, white supremacy in academia, antisemitism, cancel culture, pronouns in the workplace, violence to the LGBTQ+ community, immigration and other issues that have arisen throughout the year.
Participants will be able to:
