Courageous Equity & Inclusion: Learning to Hold All of Ourselves and Each Other
Led by Brooke Deterline & Simone Harris
“Things are not getting worse, they are getting uncovered. We must hold each other tight and continue to pull back the veil.” ~ Adrienne Maree Brown
"We yearn to end the lovelessness that is so pervasive in our society.” ~ bell hooks
The human-made hierarchy of value called race is woven into each of us, as well as our societal fabric. This Courageous Equity & Inclusion workshop offers an opportunity to increase our awareness, skills, and social support to create more inclusive and equitable relationships and environments.
Workshop leaders Simone Harris and Brooke Deterline have trained Fortune 500 companies and national nonprofits in the skills of having courageous conversations. With a life-affirming approach based in neuroscience, they will offer ways to embrace all of ourselves and each other by managing key evolutionary and socially-based traps, as well as by leveraging the saving graces of what it means to be human. Come see our common humanity, observe and experiment with different approaches, share and support each other, and increase our ability to help build a more compassionate, inclusive, and equitable society. We're in this together, so let's cultivate the compassionate courage and consciousness to face what keeps us separate and realize the reality of our oneness as a human family.
