A NEW Conversation on Diversity

presented by Tiana Sanchez


Do you want to empower employees to engage in open and honest conversations with each other? Do you want to examine emerging issues on diversity and race and their impact on HR and organizational culture? Do you want to assess how well your company is currently doing in its present state?

As employees face stress related to racial injustices, we can address sensitive issues with empathy, asking open-ended questions, actively listening, and mediating divergent thinking and breaking down barriers in a safe space. Many companies check the box on diversity, inclusion, and diverse hiring practices. Now, Human Resources professionals and leaders must learn how to mediate sensitive conversations while empowering employees to engage in honest dialogue and talk to each other.

  • Learn WHY understanding the black experience is important to Human Resources professionals and leaders? Learn about the past and present that have shaped the black experience including the omission of black contributions to our economic growth.
  • Learn WHAT barriers exist that HR professionals and leaders know about and what they don’t know about? Learn how our values shape our viewpoint of others from generation to generation. Discuss the impact of Racial Socialization.
  • Learn HOW do we use words to engage in courageous conversations? Learn that importance of engaging respectfully, responsibly, and empathetically using the 4-step S.T.O.P. acronym.
  • Learn WHEN does behavior become inappropriate and dangerous? Participants examine 5 dangerous workplace issues: Racial Bullying, Fragility, Superficial Conversations, Hostility, and Exclusion.
  • Learn WHO benefits from an inclusionary culture? Discuss the HR Pivot required to incite corporate responsibility on race and diversity.
