We're living with a global pandemic that challenges every aspect of our lives; the population is profoundly polarized, inequality has deepened, and our country is unstable in many ways. How do we engage in constructive conversations that take on tough equity issues among people who are different from one another in identities and perspectives? This EquiLearn Virtual Roundtable, facilitated by Equity Fellow Dr. Sharon Radd, will describe pitfalls and promising practices for connecting across differences. Next, tools for having difficult and inclusive conversations will be shared, and there will be an opportunity to practice with those tools. Finally, we will debrief and discuss how you can use these tools and processes to create inclusion and cohesion as you seek to increase equity in your school and community. For accessibility requests or questions, please contact glec@iupui.edu. All accommodation requests must be made within two weeks of event date.
