This course addresses one of the most significant aspects of equity and diversity work: navigating challenging conversations. In each of our ongoing developmental paths around equity, diversity, and social justice, we will find ourselves in more situations that call for self-reflection, careful listening, nuanced language, calling in/calling out, and asking thoughtful questions. This course introduces skills in the following areas: noticing and naming our own feelings and activations, developing nuance in our understanding of our intentions, providing challenge and support to peers and colleagues, and developing empathy and active listening skills when we impact others.
