Speaking up and speaking out about racism and white supremacy has become a priority for organizations and institutions across the globe, including here at UC Berkeley. However, when it comes to confronting the ways racism shows up in our everyday lives and relationships, it can be difficult to create environments where people can be truly courageous in their own growth and encourage the growth of others. In multinational/multicultural environments, this is further complexified, yet equally critical. In this session, we will focus on skills and practices for higher education professionals working with international students and colleagues to engage in difficult conversations about crucial topics related to race and anti-racism. The intention of this session is to lay the groundwork for pursuing conversations in your workplace and your life.
This event is co-sponsored by the Robertson Center for Intercultural Leadership and will feature two of its expert facilitators.
