“Power without love is reckless and abusive, and love without power is sentimental and anemic. Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice, and justice at its best is power correcting everything that stands against love.”
-Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leading productive conversations about race is critical to the growth of healthy families, institutions, and societies. But for many reasons, the topic of race can feel difficult to broach. Courageous Conversations on Race and Leadership is designed for leaders who want to develop the capacity and the skills to lead in diverse settings. Throughout this five-week program, participants experience and explore ways to generate awareness, catalyze courage, create brave space, use active listening, and facilitate discussions on difficult topics. Attendees will learn skills to advance racial equity in their work and practice, and develop the courage to lead into a more just and equitable world.
The journey commences Tuesday, September 26 with a screening and discussion of the film “American Neighbor: Courageous Conversations on Race." We then meet the next four Tuesdays from 12:00-2:30 pm ET, deepening the conversation each week through facilitated dialogue and group exercises, 21/64 frameworks and tools, and never before released clips from the American Neighbor journey. Our final session together is on October 24, 2023. Program faculty includes 21/64 leadership, the founder of Courageous Conversations Simon Greer, and his colleague Tina Grace. We are grateful for their collaboration and the 30 years of social justice, convening skills and lived experience they bring to this program.
This is a come-as-you-are encounter. You are not required to have a specific point of view or position on racial justice and equity, just an openness to learn, share, and engage. We've designed this training to allow for meaningful interaction among a small cohort of peers.
