The impact of Racism in Corporate America – Speaker: Elizabeth Moffitt, Christopher Quinn GroupA candid discussion regarding the cultural communication challenges which often exists within the workplace. While most people understand using the “N” word is seldom acceptable in any setting; there are often other indicators of discrimination and biases in many office environments. In some instances, Non-African Americans have found themselves trying to learn a “language” which most people of color have spoken since birth, the language of their culture. The matter of racism is a highly sensitive one and can create an environment of uncertainty, confusion, and fear for those challenged with navigating a conversation without being offensive or misunderstood. Whether it is what to say or what not to say; do you say, “Black” or “African American”? What about Affirmative Action? we want to have a transparent discussion that will help us better understand each other so we can work together towards a better community for ALL.
