Exploring Race and Trauma During the Age of #BlackLivesMatter (Part 1)

What can companies do to create safe spaces and mechanisms of “support” for employees who feel impacted by these events?

 

The “Let’s Talk About It Series” is designed to provide a safe space to discuss the difficult topics around diversity and inclusion. This session, in particular, will provide:

  • A forum for open dialogue on the recent tragedies;
  • Coping mechanisms for employees of color who feel impacted;
  • Tactics for non-people of color who want to be allies in combating racial injustice; and
  • Strategies for leaders to create supportive, inclusive work environments and spaces following tragedies.

Re-Examining Race and Workplace Trauma: The Practicum

As part of our Let’s Talk About It Series, the “Race and Trauma in the Workplace During the Age of #BlackLivesMatter (Part I)” Virtual Learning Lab sought to examine the implications of race based injustices and killings on workplace productivity and inclusion, and share strategies for creating environments that are conducive to having authentic dialogue around race.


In Part II of this series, we will:

  • take a deeper dive into understanding trauma from the clinical and psychological perspective;
  • provide a forum for participants to practice facilitating and addressing difficult dialogue in the workplace;
  • share more strategies and data around creating inclusive environments during times of tragedy and trauma; and
  • give a first look at the results from The Winters Group’s Race and Trauma survey.
