Description

Join the Latina Circle for

Part II of the State of Latinos and Race in Massachusetts

Leveraging Our Cultural Identity as an Asset

In March 2018, Latina Circle hosted a lively panel discussion on the State of Latinos and Race in Massachusetts. As a continuation of the race dialogue, we invite you to a salon style discussion on how our cultural identity benefits our work and how to leverage it as an asset in the workplace, in the board room and on the playground. Participants will learn how race has shaped structural inequalities, how bias shows up in our behaviors and in groups and organizations, and how to reshape our behaviors to honor our cultural identity. Participants will also leave with a shared language on cultural identity as an asset and driver of innovation, and for having constructive conversations around difference.
