How to Talk About Race a FREE Webinar from the ODLOS (ALA ~ Office for Diversity, Literacy and Outreach Services)
Title: How to Talk About Race
When: Tuesday, October 29 at 1 p.m. CST
Description: Hosting book discussions and/or community conversations can be daunting when we are not equipped to manage certain aspects of a conversation. “How to talk about Race” is a brief but insightful introduction to moderating discussions relating to race. Conversations about race are deeply personal and can be polarizing; the content we have created serves as a guide to navigate these discussions while maintaining a respectful environment. The purpose of this webinar is to walk away with applicable tools to utilize in book discussions and community conversations, learn how to establish ground rules for a group discussion, understanding an identity wheel and its purpose, and develop strategies for disruptive participants.
