How to Talk about Race When We Are Called upon To
All Day

During this time when our nation grapples with events that have placed race and systemic racism at the forefront of our attention and conversations, we may find ourselves in situations where we need to confront this issue directly. Due to a long history of inequities and political and social exclusion, race -among other topics- continues to be a sensitive issue that requires a certain set of skills for a real dialogue to take place. In this session, facilitators will briefly introduce the complexities that surround the concept of race and systemic racism along with two frameworks: the Developmental Model of Intercultural Sensitivity (DMIS) and Intercultural Conflict Style (ICS). Through understanding of these frameworks, participants will gain insight on how to approach a difficult conversation on race and what intercultural communication styles to consider.  The remainder of the session will be devoted to exploring scenarios and situations where participants can apply the frameworks.

To register for any of our sessions, please go to the UD HR CE Portal. Contact the Office of Diversity and Inclusion if you have any questions.
