6:30pm – 8:00pm
Building Personal Capability
What if I say the wrong thing? Is it okay for me to ask about someone's ethnicity? I want to take action, but I'm afraid I'll mess up! Guess what you're not alone - in our minds, there is nothing scarier than "losing face" when we've messed up, especially when it comes to interacting with others. If you are wanting to learn as well as unlearn some tools, tips and best practices on how to activate your heart, mind and voice to understanding what an ally is and is not and more importantly how to enter into conversations where you may not have all the answers, I encourage you to activate your courage and vulnerability and join in this safe community of curious learners who want to use their voice for good.
