May 19 - May 21
Racial Dialogue Training Institute
Facilitating sensitive and nuanced conversations around race is part art and part science. A competent facilitator must understand the foundational principles of communication, psychology, and human behavior.
Moreover, the facilitator must facilitate with their ears, heart, and mind. This multiday curriculum will equip experienced facilitators in deepening their skill sets to address what can be an uncomfortable topic: race. Additionally, participants will gain techniques useful in training others to improve the ways in which they show up in conversations about and across race.
