Stronger Together: Engaging in Productive Conversations on Race

This is part of our series titled Stronger Together: Promoting Racial Justice through Awareness and Action. 

Stronger Together will provide UF faculty and staff with a series of educational offerings to help them better understand and address racism and bias and help promote racial justice at the individual, institutional, and systemic levels. The context of fostering awareness, building capacity, and promoting action will weave throughout the offerings. This series will help UF move forward in efforts to combat anti-black racism and to promote a more diverse and inclusive campus.  

This week’s podcast is titled Engaging in Productive Conversations on Race. In this episode, we begin to learn how to engage in and learn how to have conversations about race. There is no script for these conversations, so we must get comfortable with being uncomfortable. The conversations can be scary and risky; and they can be harmful if we don’t address them with care, attention and intentionality. Positively, learning and practicing skills can be the start of healing and connection, of understanding ways in which you and others move through the same world in very different realities.
