WHOLLY SHIFT:  COMPLETELY CHANGING THE CONVERSATION ON BIAS, DIVERSITY, PRIVILEGE AND INCLUSION USING BRAIN SCIENCE

Eric M. Bailey
Bailey Strategic Innovation Group

This is going to feel different.  After the murder of George Floyd in the summer of 2020, millions of people around the world began entering into a dialogue about race and racism in America.  FRPA understands the importance of this dialogue, but also understands that many folks may not know where and how to enter into the conversation.  Leveraging Harvard Business School research entitled, “Why Diversity Training Doesn’t Work,” we will explore the practical brain science and psychology to navigate this critical conversation.  We will create a space where we can safely share our questions, opinions, and experiences authentically, listen and learn from one another, and continue the process of productive dialogue in our organizations.

Learning Objectives

Understand why diversity training does not work.

Explore the practical brain science and psychology to navigate the critical conversation about race and racism.

Learn from others on how to have productive dialogue within and outside of our agencies.
