Tuesday, October 15th, 7-8:30pm
Join Maharani Peace Hall for a seriously WOKE evening, for you, our community and neighbors!
Elephant Talks are about addressing the “elephant” in the room. We tackle important and sometimes difficult equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) topics that far too often are pushed aside due to people’s discomfort. In a safe yet brave setting, facilitators embark on a journey of reflection, understanding, growth, and positive change with participants. This is hard but necessary work. The conversations will be uncomfortable at points but with the willingness of all involved the hope is to come to new levels of understanding and compassion. We are all knowledge holders and through deep, meaningful, guided dialogue we can collectively start to change perspectives, hearts, and minds.
This months Elephant Talk is about Microaggressions. Differences aren't always appreciated, acknowledged, or celebrated properly in our society. Sometimes knowingly or unknowingly the way we choose to acknowledge the differences can be disrespectful and even hurtful. What do microaggressions look/sound like? Why does it matter? How can we avoid them? How can we move past them? These are difficult questions with complex answers. Let's do our best to tackle this issue of microaggression in an effort to make our world thoughtful and aware.
If you're interested in being part of the conversation so that your voice is heard, if you want to be the change you wish to see in the world come participate in this free event.
Please invite others!!
Thanks in advance.
Light refreshments provided.
This is a FREE event!!
