Race Matters - Results Count!™

Race is an important dimension of diversity and for many it is the essence of who they are and how they are perceived. Race can lead us to questions, judgments and conflict, or it can be the catalyst for expanded perspectives, diversity of thought and innovation. How we get to know each other and build bridges of understanding, trust and respect will quite often determine the level of success we can achieve.

This four to six hour positive and innovative workshop combines storytelling, Q & A and discussions about race and identity to create a shared experience, understanding and team cohesion - all for the purpose of transforming the workplace.

Storytelling has become a powerful tool to transform people and situations. Author/actor Michael Fosberg tells his story through his one-man play. His story provokes meaningful conversations about race and identity. Since each person is unique and their story and experiences different, workshop participants are eager to engage in dialogue to explore individual and collective journeys and to enhance understanding, relationships and team cohesion.

Specifically participants will...

  • Learn to share the story of their experiences
  • Gain skills and techniques to understand the experiences and perspectives of others
  • Build team cohesion, momentum and respect for results

"The performance in itself created an environment for candid discussion among the staff. So many different generations were represented in the audience that provided for a very interestingdiscussion about racism, stereotypes and behaviors. The discussion following the performance was quite rich and beneficial."
