Community Conversation – The Sequel [Presented by GRIOT: The African Heritage ERG]

As we continue to witness national and global events that wrench our hearts and souls, we know many of you could use another safe space to process your thoughts and feelings. In light of this, we are hosting “Community Conversation – The Sequel” to be a healing space to process some of these recent events. You will be free to voice your thoughts, vent about your frustrations, witness one another’s pain, frustration, and resilience, and consider essential strategies for healing and moving forward with hope and purpose.

The dialogue will be facilitated by Pearl Alexander and Dr. Tia Jackson, senior leaders in Institute Diversity, Equity & Inclusion. Again, you will have an opportunity to share personal stories, reflections, emotions, and experiences, or simply sit back and listen as others share from their hearts during this time.

Feel free to join the call for whatever portion of time your schedule permits.

NOTE: This session will not be recorded.
