How to Prepare for An Effective Dialogue Session

Many staff and faculty members across campus are increasingly interested in hosting dialogues around race and social injustice. Dialogue can lead to more insightful and well-supported decisions and can also allow individuals to feel heard. But effective dialogue is not always easy to achieve and can be a challenge to even get started.

Join us on July 15 from 10:00-11:15 to discuss how to intentionally prepare for an effective dialogue. Hear from panelists about how they prepared for and started the discussion, best practices, personal experiences, and some pitfalls we might try to avoid.

Our guest panelists will be:

  • Todd Suddeth – Executive Director of Multicultural Center
  • Molly Peirano – Director of Education & Engagement
  • Temple Patton – Diversity and Inclusion Manager, Lima Campus
  • Nicole Nieto – Assistant Vice Provost-Academic Affairs

Sponsored by The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Facilitators Group
