Session: Stepping Stones from Diversity Learning to Equitable Actions
We are in the middle of an awakening, a disruption and reforming of norms, values, and expectations. Many organizations and individuals are rethinking how we show up in the world, how we see ourselves, our communities, and our organizations. It can be overwhelming to the point of inaction. We attend anti-racism trainings and book clubs, we commit to a couple of takeaways, and then.... we move on to other priorities. There's a gap between knowing we want to create change and actually acting to create that change in ourselves and our communities. Let's talk about how to move forward, nurture positive, intersectional change, and continue the momentum of #MeToo and #BlackLivesMatter. Let's each take the next right step forward within our scopes of control to nurture more equitable anti-bullying cultures.
