Learning with LCW Webinar: Ask an Expert Anything on Having Difficult Conversations About the Black Experience
Date: February 13, 2023
Time: 11am-12pm CST
LCW is excited to announce our brand-new 2023 webinar series, Learning with LCW! Throughout the year, join us for events that start important conversation, upskill your own learning, and celebrate the success of DEI industry leaders that are moving the needle in a meaningful way.
To kick off this series, we invite you to join us for a candid interactive discussion on how to have difficult conversations about the Black Experience. This is your opportunity to ask our LCW team the questions you’ve always wanted to ask, bring up the obstacles you’re facing in your own workplaces, and begin important conversations on topics that can be difficult to navigate. Submit your questions ahead of time when you register and we’ll curate the discussion to address the topics you believe are most urgent.
We won’t have time to unpack and solve every challenge facing our workplaces, but this space is your opportunity to start the conversation and begin to develop a plan to impact your own organization. We hope you join us in learning with LCW!
