Community Conversations: Courageous Conversations

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Virtual Live Events
How do we have difficult conversations?

Too often, the way we engage with our friends and family about issues of race and other "isms" reinforces the very biases and systems we are trying to change.

Join us for an interactive overview of seven norms for engaging in a way that creates space for difficult yet empowering conversations. Participants will have the opportunity to reflect on what is challenging and commit to practical action steps. This session will provide a strong foundation, equipping us all with helpful tools for continuing to build relationships while engaging in difficult conversations.

This is the fourth event in a series of four workshops led by Richard Kim from Cultures Connecting, a non-profit organization that provides culturally relevant professional development, consulting, coaching, and one-on-one diversity leadership support to organizations and communities. Richard brings nearly a decade of professional experience with a person centered approach to engaging race, culture, and identity in various non-profit and education settings. Most recently, Richard worked as the Intercultural Credibility Coordinator/Consultant at The Seattle School of Theology & Psychology, where he also received his M.Div. Richard also holds a B.S. from the University of Minnesota. As a person born in the United States to parents who emigrated from South Korea, Richard brings an uncommon voice to the work of racial equity.

All NCW Libraries' virtual programs are free and open to the public. This event will be held through the zoom digital meeting platform. To participate, register here. Registrants will receive an email with the Zoom meeting information.

Any participation in NCW Libraries programming, both in person and virtual, must abide by the NCW Libraries Code of Conduct.
