Difficult Discussions

Session Leader(s):

Fee: $1,500

We are frequently encouraged to hold conversations about diversity, equity and inclusion across the fault lines of identity and difference. This is usually difficult because it requires us to touch places of unhealed pain and trauma, often with little skill and shared understanding. Anyta Wilson, a licensed clinical social worker and diversity and inclusion trainer, is available to facilitate these types of discussions within organizations that are ready to do this work. She creates respectful dialogue spaces where specific problems can be explored and addressed without blaming or shaming individuals. After each discussion, she provides time for debriefing to help the team/department move forward on its issues.
