The conversation around racism and reconciliation is difficult for anyone. Often emotions, opinions, and perspectives are held with deep convictions. However, as leaders, we must engage in these conversations with compassion, patience, and humility. In this workshop, we are going to look at who we need to be in the midst of this conversation, and walk away with tools to allow love, humility, patience, and grace to give the hard work of reconciliation a chance.
