Uncomfortable Conversations Dialogue #5

DLA has created a 5-part series of healing dialogues that included a successful 2-day deep dive Virtual Conference that was just completed on October 29th and 30th. These dialogues are by no means meant to be all-inclusive but will serve as a part of an overall wholistic solution and a positive approach to harnessing our collective energy.  These workshops are designed to be a safe space and place to have difficult but meaningful, open, and honest conversations that can become turning points and actionable items that ignite change. The goal of the dialogue series is to begin to cultivate a sustainable environment of inclusivity, diversity, equity, and belonging.

Conscious Approaching Equity – Moving Closer to Anti-Racism
We close the year with our final dialogue in the series which will help to bring all of the dialogue learnings together. This workshop will provide key guidance for how to make daily conscious and intentional efforts and actions towards equity and justice.

Reaching Equity is about making conscious choices regarding steps you will take against racism in small personal ways, larger group settings and even against systems designed to oppress marginalized groups, thoughts and people.
