About Conversations on Race Summer 2020 Virtual Five-Part Series

Eliminating racism is an ongoing process that involves a willingness to learn about, and begin, undoing, the adverse impact of racism on individuals, organizations, and communities.

In the wake of George Floyd’s death, all of us are considering what we can do to change systemic racism.  This five-part series will help you discuss and break down racial bias. This is an opportunity to learn about the history and impact of racism and what you can do about it.  

Each two-hour session will allow time for content review (video clips, reflection questions) along with listening pairs, breakout rooms and full group discussions.

Summer 2020 Schedule and Topics

Join us on Zoom! Thursday’s from 10:00 a.m. – Noon.

July 9        Racial Implicit Bias

July 16      History/Roots of Racism

July 23      Manifestations of Racism

July 30      On Whiteness

August 6   Wrap Up

In order to address racism, in all the places where we witness its oppressive power, we need people who understand it, can address it and challenge it. 

We will end racism when more people, particularly white people, understand the importance of taking action to intervene and change racialized outcomes impacting people of color in work, personal and structural settings.
