Abstract

How many conversations involving diversity have left you "walking on eggshells?" Have you ever said something that you wish you could take back immediately? How many times have you said nothing because you were afraid to say the wrong thing? In this fun and interactive session, you will: (1) Understand how comments such as "I don't see color, I am color blind" impact others (despite our good intentions), and (2) Learn different strategies that will help you increase your diversity skills and competence. This presentation is based on the book 35 Dumb Things Well-Intended People Say by Dr. Maura Cullen.
