The recent protests and riots around the world have brought to light major disparities in our world with regards to race and ethnicity. Now, more than ever, it is important to stand as an ally with diverse communities so that culture can make a shift towards progressing equality. However many struggle with knowing how to find the words, out of fear of saying or doing the wrong thing.
This session will help bridge the gap between good intent and confidence to be inclusive from a place of respect and empowerment. How can we be more inclusive irrespective of race, gender, ethnicity, sexuality, age or ability?
