ChoicePoints Learning Hosts Race Relations Workshop at Georgetown University

eTradeWire News/10556669
Two-Day Workshop Talking About Race and Breaking the Barriers of Black and White

WASHINGTON - eTradeWire -- Despite the volatile climates of this country, whether political, educational, business or government, one thing is for certain, we can no longer recoil from facing head-on our deeply embedded issues around race. ChoicePoints Learning is hosting Woke, Creating a New Normal on Race, One Conversation at a Time, a two-day workshop on March 26 and March 27 at Georgetown University, Institute for Transformational Leadership, 640 Massachusetts Avenue, NW Washington, DC.

"We call it Woke: Creating a New Normal on Race, One Conversation at a Time because that's how we felt almost immediately when we were each facilitating our 1-year small groups in our living rooms or online. Whether black or white or brown, we ALL learned how little we knew about our common history or about one another. When we were asked by Georgetown University to create a 2-day version, we wanted to capture that feeling of soul-deep surprise as we let ourselves lean in further sharing our hidden assumptions and lived experiences in this racialized society." –Linda Bidlack, Leadership Coach, ChoicePoints Learning

Woke is designed to attract those who strongly desire to build true, authentic connections across races. Those who need to get better at leading or working as part of a diverse workplace and those who want to lead or participate on winning teams that fully optimize the contributions of all people.

"We believe a coaching approach to DEI initiatives is more personally affecting, more person-to-person and 1-1. More experiential and less intellectualizing, more about conversations around race right in this moment with each other right now, as participants build relationships with each other in the session for 2 days." –Tracy Carmen-Jones, ChoicePoints Learning Partner

Workshop attendees can expect open dialogues, real conversations, relevant tools and practices, learning modules, conversation techniques and an action plan for implementation and momentum. Attendees can expect to:

-Gain firsthand understanding of the current 5 gaps between whites and people of color.
