The People's Gathering: A Revolution of Consciousness
How people talk (or don’t talk) about race in the workplace AND school environments is a strong indicator on whether an organization is healthy and has an inclusive culture. Intentionally preparing company leaders, managers, employees and students to have these hard and sometimes difficult conversations is a strategic action towards improved communication and sense of belonging, reduced risks and productive environments.
THE PEOPLE’S GATHERING is a professional/personal development learning experience and networking opportunity designed to move the (often dreaded) “Race Conversation” forward. The conference seeks to create a supportive space in which participants can engage in honest and open dialogue about race and racial disparities that are systemically present in work, school and everyday life. They will become more aware of how race shows up as structural barriers to realizing a diverse and inclusive environment and learn ways to navigate the sensitivity of it all by deepening personal understanding of the issues. TPG will also provide a unique and fun opportunity for participants to expand their professional and personal networks across cultures.
This conference is designed to provide you with the knowledge, skills and tools necessary to:
• Assess your current level of cultural competence (what knowledge, skills, and
resources can you build on? Where are the gaps?)
• Increase your awareness and understanding of the depth and breadth of
Institutional racism and its effect on organizational diversity and inclusion goals.
• Engage in effective community, school and workplace dialogues on race.
• Improve interpersonal saavy.
• Build networks across culture, community and industry.
