The prospect of engaging in interracial dialogue can be a discomforting one for many people in the United States. There’s concern about saying the wrong thing, fear of how you or others will respond, and oftentimes a desire to get out of the moment as quickly as possible. In this session on navigating interracial dialogue, we will explore what are people’s biggest barriers to engaging in interracial dialogue, present a framework for engaging in race-aware interracial dialogue, and critique a dialogue for review. This training is being developed and facilitated by EQuity.
This workshop is designed for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. For faculty and staff, please contact RackhamEvents@umich.edu to see if we can accommodate your attendance.
