Don't miss this inspiring conversation about urgent challenges of today.

A nation struggles to battle a global pandemic and at the same time undo centuries of systemic racism, all while recovering from one of the most consequential and contentious elections in its history. It sounds like something out of a sci-fi novel, but this is our reality. For some, the impacts of this moment are mostly viewed through our phones and televisions. However, for others, the pain is much closer to home and the stakes are much higher. This workshop will focus on how we as individuals and collectively through our work can meet this moment with the urgency that it requires, especially for the people who are counting on us most.
