Or

Thursday, Nov. 17, 7:00-8:45 p.m.

This workshop gives participants tactical tools they can use to make difficult conversations easier, and the techniques we share apply to every relationship we have. More than a few participants have stated this workshop did as much for them at home as it did at work. Us, too! With a few laughs along the way and some private moments of truthful reflection, our PML master facilitators will give participants a step-by-step roadmap of and opportunity to practice what to do and say when you have offended someone in your community, and when someone has offended you.

Facilitated by Point Made Learning, the Coalition for Social Equity and United Way are proud to sponsor this event as a follow-up from our Town Hall on Racial Equity.

Each session can only accommodate 50 people maximum to ensure every participate gets as much as possible out of the training. Pre-registration is a must.
