This webinar is a part of the Navigating Challenging Conversations: Why, What, and How series.

Challenging conversations are an inevitable part of building trusting relationships with families, colleagues and partners. While these conversations can be uncomfortable, they are also opportunities for self-reflection and growth. In this webinar series, we will explore how racism, culture, and bias may affect when and how we experience conversations as challenging. We will practice applying a strengths-based approach to effectively engage in challenging conversations.

You can register for each webinar individually or sign up for the whole series.
