Speaker: Muadi B. Dibinga, Life Coach and Motivational Speaker
Description: In this interactive webinar, participants will be provided with tools and coaching to facilitate their ability to have honest and productive conversations about race with youth. Participants will learn strategies to help them manage any disempowering feelings (e.g., fear, frustration, anxiety, and inadequacy) that may arise when speaking to youth from different races about these issues. Participants will also learn techniques to diffuse emotionally charged situations in real-time and receive coaching support on current challenges they are experiencing in their efforts to facilitate conversations about race in their professional capacity.
