About the Event: Creating a Diverse Work Environment
Addressing Race Relations in 21st Century In this keynote, participants learn a framework and common language for the four pillars of Social Justice. We explore what we all need to do to effectively engage across cultures and undo systems of oppression. This framework takes into account the importance of deepening awareness of self—moving from color blindness to racial cognizance; increasing knowledge of others and their experiences with systems of oppression; developing skills to effectively engage across cultures; and advocating and taking action to dismantle institutional racism and other forms of oppression.
