We Have to Talk: Navigating Challenging Conversations About Diversity
Friday, October 08, 2021, 12:00 PM until 1:00 PM
Judge Debra Walker and Kendra Abercrombie (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Manager for the Illinois Supreme Court Commission on Professionalism) through the University of Illinois College of Law present, "We Have to Talk: Navigating Challenging Conversations About Diversity."
Having difficult conversations about diversity in the workplace can be challenging. Compared to a year ago, 82% of lawyers reported they had conversations with colleagues about racial justice more or much more often than years before. In this course, participants will learn how to approach these conversations head-on. Participants will engage in techniques to interrupt microaggressions and develop strategies that will help them navigate challenging conversations around culturally sensitive topics. Those outfitted with these skills can serve as a better ally while working to recognize and eliminate bias in the legal profession.
This course will be submitted for 1.0 hour of ILLINOIS Professional Responsibility (Diversity and Inclusion) CLE credit.
