Listen. Talk. Learn: Dialoguing Across Difference at Fontbonne University
May 4, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pmFREE
Diversity Awareness Partnership (DAP)’s Listen. Talk. Learn’s are intended to help strengthen our community’s ability to dialogue about race relations by facilitating important and difficult discussions on race, unconscious bias, and our lived experiences. Our hope is that by talking to one another and learning more about communities we have limited exposure to, we will be more effective allies in the on-going work of racial justice.
DAP began offering FREE Listen. Talk. Learn: Dialogue Across Difference Facilitation Sessions (LTL) in September 2014 after Michael Brown’s death. Since this time more than 3,000 people have attended an LTL from the business, corporate, non-profit, arts, and faith sectors. The sessions are open to anyone interested in attending. Companies and organizations may request to host an LTL community session at their facility.
Attendees will leave the session with the following:
- Information on the differences between Debate vs. Dialogue
- Strategy for answering difficult and polarizing questions about race, racism, and bias
- Exposure to a lived experience different than your own
- Opportunity to process recent events
