Author Talk Screening of How to Talk About Race
Screening of the recording of How to Have Difficult Conversations About Race helps readers gain the confidence to not only talk about race, but actually make a difference when you do. Negotiation expert Kwame Christian's motto is: "The best things in life are on the other side of difficult conversations." If we want a more equitable workplace, and a more equitable world, we have to talk to each other about race. But, for so many of us, that's easier said than done. Many people avoid conversations about race because of fear: fear of discomfort, damaging important relationships, being misunderstood, "cancelled," or ostracized.

- Be strategic about the outcome you want, and guide the conversation accordingly.
- Use "Compassionate Curiosity" to connect and persuade.
- Avoid common mistakes.
- Communicate more effectively over email, when you can't talk face to face.
