DO YOU WANT TO HAVE CONVERSATIONS ABOUT RACE BUT DON'T KNOW HOW?
WOMEN OF COLOR...
Are you tired of having conversations about race with white people that leave you feeling disrespected, demeaned, hurt or angry?
Do you wonder how to have effective, impactful conversations at work with white management or with white friends?
Wouldn't it be great to have consistently effective, impactful conversations with white people about race where you can tell "they get it"... and you remain peaceful, unbothered and empowered?
Do you have massive guilt/feelings of responsibility about racism and know you should be doing something?
By not taking action... does that guilt energy have no outlet and morph into low-grade chronic stress and self-judgment... affecting sleep (you're staring at the ceiling), your relationships (you're distracted and sad), and even work performance (being sad and distracted is even worse at work)?
Have you gone on a reading-spree and been in book discussion groups... you've gained a bunch of new awareness... and you find yourself with "now what" paralysis?
Or... to avoid feeling the guilt... you've jumped into immediate action and self-righteously lashed out at other white people on Facebook or in real life, damaging those relationships?
Then there are those painfully disastrous attempts at connecting with people of color... and then you beat yourself up for days afterwards?
YOU'RE NOT ALONE.
Women everywhere are feeling an urgent call to do their part to heal and transform racism. This means speaking one's truth, but that's where it gets tricky. Many women get stuck when trying to speak their truth with clarity and confidence.
A NEW WAY
What if there were a place where women could come together and get trained in how to have graceful, authentic conversations about race that leave everyone empowered?
What would this take?
It takes inner work and outer work.
It takes women with the bravery and heart to take on these three things:
- Emotional Work
- Intellectual Work
- Conversational Work
