Don’t Talk about Race, Politics or Religion at Work!

Mary-Frances Winters: LinkedIn >>

Whether we like it or not, or are prepared for it or not, this adage no longer applies. People are talking about these issues, or at minimum, thinking about them, and it impacts productivity, engagement and employees’ sense of safety and well-being.  Considering we have been taught not to talk about polarizing topics, especially at work, we may not know how to do it very well.  Effectively engaging in bold, inclusive conversations is hard work and is getting even harder due to the current global, political, and social climate.  This workshop will provide an effective guide to developing the skills necessary to engage in conversations around polarizing topics.  Over the past 20 years, we have witnessed increased and intensified global polarization on many topics related to our differences. Unfortunate acts of terrorism; movements like #BlacklivesMatter; and Brexit and the divisiveness of the 2016 US presidential election, are leaving indelible wounds on many.  We see vast divisions that exacerbate an “us and them” disunity, leading to heightened racism, xenophobia, Islamophobia, classism, and homophobia.

The workshop will offer skills to:

  • Understand why we need to talk about these topics at work
  • Prepare for bold, inclusive conversations
  • Address polarized views in respectful ways
  • Discover common ground

This workshop is a 3-hour session.
