Join Dr. Erikca Brown, Office of DEI Inclusive Education Manager and Dr. Paula Danquah-Brobby, Director of DEI in a faculty and staff workshop on compassionate conversation. Compassionate conversation refers to the skillful ways that people can talk together so that we feel understood and more able to understand one another.

This learning opportunity encourages and supports compassionate conversations as a skillful communication practice. Participants will develop skills for communication and interaction across cultures and expand opportunities to engage in authentic and compassionate communication to exchange multiple perspectives and lived experiences around inclusive excellence, diversity, equity, inclusion, and anti-racism.
