Brave Lil Convos Eventbrite.png

Brave Lil' Convos is a monthly series that equips people with vocabulary, skills and tools to lead and participate in brave conversations about racial injustice, equity and tolerance in the workplace. 
 
Monthly topics vary based on what’s happening in society, timely issues and suggestions from participants.

WHY DO IT?

Meetings can be an opportunity to build relationships, counteract unhealthy uses of power and design good processes. 

 

As managers look for ways to create an inclusive team culture, Brave Lil' Convos is here to help with guided discussions to encourage dialogue and tackle brave conversations amongst team members.

WHO SHOULD DO IT?

  • Active learners.

  • Anyone curious to learn more about what they know, and also don't know.

  • Anyone wanting more practice having and/or leading conversations related to DEI.

  • Anyone wanting practical and tangible advice on the little things that can pop up on a daily basis.   

UPCOMING SESSIONS: BRAVE LIL' CONVOS

Topics vary each month, although the focus will always encourage relationship building, empathy building and cultural learnings. All conversations happen virtually over zoom.
