2021 Uncomfortable Conversations…the Dialogue Continues #1

In 2021, DLA continues its impactful dialogue series “UNCOMFORTABLE CONVERSATIONS THAT IGNITE CHANGE”.  This year, we dig even deeper to unearth some deep rooted systems of inequity and oppression in Education, Healthcare, Food Systems and Technology. The  2021 dialogues will be all about listening and learning and were created because we want these conversations to mean something. Our desire is for people to walk away feeling like they have some additional tools that they can use to begin to ask important questions that get to the root of the insideous nature of racism and inequity across all systems. We realize that in order for true, lasting progress to be made it is going to take ALL OF US, every race, ethnicity, culture, religion, gender, sexual orientation and political affiliation. We don’t have all of the answers now, but we do have a forum that serves as a safe place and space where the community can come together and connect in a meaningful way.


Workshop Details

To kick off the first dialogue of 2021, participants will join an interactive facilitated dialogue on the application of the Cultural Humility principles in their work as a foundation for social transformation. Participants will gain insight on how to build trustful partnerships with colleagues and the communities we serve, and how organizational policies and behaviors can be transformed by applying the Cultural Humility principles.



Cultural Humility trainers Souta Calling Last and Tyler Walls of Indigenous Vision are stewards of their Indigenous communities, culture, people, and land. They envision a unified world of empowered Indigenous people and communities  where future generations are ensured healthy environments and strong cultures  by honoring the traditions and knowledge of their ancestors.
