TRANSFORMATIONAL INTERGROUP Race DIALOGUE
The Transformational Intergroup Race Dialogue facilitates intergroup learning by bringing together a racially diverse group of individuals to share their thoughts, feelings and emotions about race in the United States. While the dialogue will allow participants to better understanding race and racial identity on structural and institutional levels, the major focus will be on helping participants to explore their own racial identity on an individual level.
The goal of the dialogue is to help individuals improve their capacity to engage race issues in the area of intergroup communication, intergroup understanding, and intergroup relations. The dialogue will help individuals better understanding their own obstacles for teaching, leading and communicating with racial diverse groups.
The Race Dialogue will be comprised of only 10-12 individuals to facilitate a deep and substantive dialogue. While the dialogue will be focused on engaging participants in sharing their thoughts and experiences, skilled facilitators will manage the process by encouraging meaningful exchanges and thoughtful, constructive conflict.
