Join the REDI Task Force for the next event the "Critical Conversations: Race and Global Affairs" series featuring keynote speaker Dr. Nita Mosby Tyler.
At a moment of uncertainty, commitment, pain, and hope – there is great opportunity to advance racial equity through our organizational structures and systems. This keynote presentation will be explore that now, more than ever, organizations are uniquely positioned to evolve from ‘hearts and minds’ work and start the construction phase – meaning building the systems of racial equity. In addition to a focus on advancing equity work within organizations, Dr. Mosby Tyler will discuss how to catalyze explicit conversations about equity, diversity, and inclusion; how to combat skepticism; how to diversify systems; how to transition to a culture of inclusion and equity; how to begin and sustain equity work through ongoing action and systemic change; and how to center racial justice and equity in our decision making, programming development, and dialogue.
The presentation will conclude with a 30-minute Q&A from the audience.
