“How to Have Uncomfortable Conversations Towards Positive Change”

In American society, many challenging issues impact our identity on a daily bases. While there is much to say, are we comfortable with the uncomfortable, and do we know how to share in a way that promotes a healthy teaching and learning community?

We will explore how to Engage in Uncomfortable Conversations as we continue to build a Culture of Equity, Diversity & Inclusion with a New Communication Paradigm.

The series will feature an article review and introductory methods of engaging in healthy critical conversations. Our COD students will also lead us with their insight as featured panelists.

Then, keynote presenter Keith Barnes, executive director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at Pikes Peak Community College, Colorado Springs, CO. will provide a professional perspective on this relevant topic.

This series is open to all students, faculty, staff, and the community!
