Courageous Conversations: Promoting Healthy Discussion in the Workplace

Embracing and appreciating every person’s background demonstrates your commitment to being a great place to work and upholds values that strengthen the communities you serve. Having meaningful conversations around things like gender, race, ethnicity, age and disabilities in the workplace—communicating across differences—is a crucial piece of this. These “courageous conversations” foster intentional inclusion and understanding and they encourage employees to have open dialogue on important topics. This session will offer:  

  • Tactics on how to have and facilitate hard conversations around differences in background, experience or viewpoints 

  • Why it is dangerous to simply do nothing or say nothing because these conversations can be uncomfortable  

  • How to make people aware of a lack of diversity and micro aggressions  

  • A better understanding about why it’s necessary to be thoughtful with how you broach these issues or handle difficult conversations when they present themselves
