Thursday: Race, Politics, and the Workplace

submitted by gocmen@augsburg.edu

When: October 29, 2020 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm
Where: Online/Video Conference
Presenters: Candi Castleberry Singleton, Twitter  |  Bill Proudman, White Men as Full Diversity Partners/FDP Global  |  Howard Ross, Udarta Consulting  |  Regina Speed-Bost, SB Law, PLLC  |  Sandra S. Yamate, Institute for Inclusion in the Legal Profession (IILP)

We are experiencing amplified division and chaos around concepts central to diversity, equity and inclusion: Anti-racism and white privilege are becoming increasingly politicized, especially as the US prepares itself for the upcoming Presidential election.

How does this resistance show up in your workplace and in your DEI initiatives? How do we continue to bridge divides that seem to be increasingly polarized? And, how will you prepare your workplace for the aftermath of the election, whatever the outcome?

Together, with White Men as Full Diversity Partners’ Bill Proudman and Jim Morris, with guest Howard Ross, we will explore these questions and the unique challenges facing workplaces in the US right now.

Learning Outcomes
Learn what fear and resistance sound like and reveal in the workplace
Be clear on why DEI work matters, especially right now
Build up your resolve and your internal change agents
