Being Brave, Examining Race and Racism

Join the webinar on Friday, August 7th from 1 pm - 2 pm ET

Race related conversations are currently happening in our nation whether we feel ready or not to have them. Race and racism as domains of human concern and care are no longer discretionary conversations if we are to thrive and heal as individuals and organizations; as communities and as a nation. It is one challenge that arises in shared spaces of living and working together that is unavoidable for us as leaders and coaches.

On August 7th, IGL USA Faculty Members, Sonia Bu and Steven Jones will facilitate a community conversation around racism and actions we can take together to address the racial inequities. This webinar serves as a standalone and also an introduction to IGL USA's upcoming racism course offering.

**Please note that you MUST attend live. We will not be sending a recording of this webinar.
