Wednesday November 11 12:00 - 1:30 Zoom Election Discussion facilitated by VCIC - In today's highly-divisive social climate and hyperactive social media world, traditionally “taboo” topics such as race, religion, and politics are happening more frequently in the workplace.  When these courageous conversations are well-facilitated and occur with civility, we lessen the risk of negatively impacting employee morale, engagement, and productivity.  During this session, participants will explore identity and conversational competence to talk about the hard stuff at work respectfully.
