When the subject of race comes up, uncomfortable feelings and judgements arise, and often useful communication is lacking.

The webinar will explore:

  • The dynamics of white privilege and white fragility
  • Our global history and current societal structures and systems
  • Barriers to understanding and dialogue in this area

Who is it suitable for?

The webinar is intended for participants who identify as white and the focus of the workshop will be white people sharing and discussing their experiences.

Black and Ethnic Minority people/People of Colour are welcome to join on this basis.
