Cross-Cultural Conversations (2-sessions) ~ A Series of Dialogues for More Equitable Communities on Zoom

Category: Cross Cultural Conversations

The Cross-Cultural Conversations Council invites community members to attend this important training to learn about, uncover, and address systemic racism, biases and barriers for our community members.
Through self-assessment and facilitated activities, participants gain increased understanding of their personal background and perspective on the implications of how their experience affects how they think and react to others from different backgrounds.

Organizations discover the value of practicing a more open and inclusive mindset into day-to-day operations

*Two Virtual Sessions (Part 1 & 2) ~ March 5th, and March 7th, 2024 from 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM ET  
(This is a 4-hour event split into 2 sessions for easy scheduling - you must attend both sessions)
