Training Overview

We need to talk about racism. Learn how to initiate and lead conversations at work.

As people return to workplaces as the pandemic subsides, racism is becoming an even more significant problem. Some employees are fed up with inequitable treatment, while others spawn racist attitudes and inappropriate behaviors.

For white people and people of color alike, talking about racism can feel like navigating through a minefield. You need to attack the topic of race at work through intelligent, productive, empathetic conversations.
