Talking about our differences is difficult. Discussing how some aspects of your identity differ from other people’s—and ways you may experience privilege and disadvantage—can feel uncomfortable, accusatory, and potentially threatening. In the workplace, people often struggle with how or even whether to raise these issues. To effectively communicate across differences and build inclusive workplaces, openness and the ability to have difficult conversations are needed.
Join us as we share insights from Catalyst’s tool, “Engaging in Conversations About Gender, Race, and Ethnicity.” We will explore roadblocks that stifle difficult conversations and discuss actions you can take to make those discussions go smoothly.
