Training Description

These sessions will guide participants through the barriers to the strategies to overcome fears about speaking honestly and authentically about racial bias.

To participate effectively in interracial dialogue about race, the first step is to commit to honoring and practicing the Four Agreements of Courageous Conversation. Embracing these agreements will allow educators to engage, sustain, and deepen interracial dialogue.

Learning outcomes

1. Stay Engaged

Remaining morally, emotionally, intellectually, and relationally involved in the dialogue To stay engaged is to not let your heart and mind “check out” of the conversation while leaving you body seated at the table Resist the natural inclination to move away from the conversation by disengaging

2. Speak Your Truth

Means being absolutely honest about your thoughts, feelings, and opinions and not just saying what you perceive others want to hear To not speak our truth often leads to deeper confusion, mistrust, and misunderstanding Speaking your own personal truth allows you to fully engage and develop your racial consciousness

3. Move Forward Despite Experiencing Discomfort

Means engaging in tough conversations that may make you feel uncomfortable Agreeing to experience discomfort allows you to deal with the reality of race and racism in an honest and forthright way This is how we “build muscle”, increasing our tolerance for discomfort so that we increase our ability to address the challenges associated with racial achievement disparity

4. Expect/Accept Non-closure

Committing to an ongoing dialogue. Rule out any possibility of discovering a “quick fix” There is no technical solution
