The R Word: Succeeding In Spite of Racism
Racism exists and it affects all of us in subtle ways. Are you
able to communicate effectively with customers, coworkers and vendors
from different ethnic or cultural groups? In this session we help
you take action to minimize the impact of racism on your career
development or on the growth of your business. Handouts will include
checklists to help you recognize when racism is limiting your potential.
You'll also receive a list of options to help you make choices and
take action that will help you succeed in spite of racism. The patterns
described can also be applied to sexism and other patterns of discrimination.
Every Day Heroes
Are you an Every Day Hero? Every day heroes are the people who
do what's right, not necessarily what's easy. They are self-directed
and hold themselves accountable for fulfilling their promises and
meeting their commitments. In this session you will learn to recognize
the every day heroes around you and the benefits of being an every
day hero yourself! It takes much more than a positive attitude to
be a hero. Come be inspired and energized while learning specific
behaviors and commitments that will help you succeed.
