Practice Session: Facilitating Conversations for an Anti-Racist Workplace

This workshop is open to faculty and staff who are managers and supervisors who want to hone their facilitation skills for discussions with their teams on anti-racist topics.

In this session, managers and supervisors will have the opportunity to further practice the skills introduced to them in Facilitating Conversations for an Anti-Racist Workplace. The majority of the time will be spent in breakout rooms practicing facilitating team meetings using the templates provided.

Participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Practice facilitation skills for short discussions on sensitive topics with their team
  • Advance their self-confidence as a Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) discussion facilitator

You will benefit by:

  • Improving facilitation skills that support brief discussions on sensitive topics
  • Learning how to create an inclusive, safe environment for discussions
  • Having a plan for what you’ll do if tensions arise
