Overview (Program Summary)

This event will facilitate a discussion around the book So You Want to Talk About Race by Ijeoma Oluo. Our discussion will be facilitated by Equity & Inclusion Consultant, Mindy Gulati

Book Preview: 

Widespread reporting on aspects of white supremacy -- from police brutality to the mass incarceration of Black Americans -- has put a media spotlight on racism in our society. Still, it is a difficult subject to talk about. How do you tell your employee her jokes are racist? Why did your coworker take umbrage when you asked to touch her hair -- and how do you make it right? How do you explain white privilege to your white, privileged friend?

In So You Want to Talk About Race, Ijeoma Oluo guides readers of all races through subjects ranging from intersectionality and affirmative action to "model minorities" in an attempt to make the seemingly impossible possible: honest conversations about race and racism, and how they infect almost every aspect of American life.

How it Works:

1. Register for the Book Club before September 15.
2. You'll receive an Amazon credit to purchase the book format of your choice (paper copy, digital, or audiobook)
3. Read So You Want to Talk About Race

Mindy Gulati is founder and CEO of Fundamental Advisory, a consulting firm focused on advising businesses, nonprofits, and law firms on issues related to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. Her focus is anti-racism and equity, implicit bias awareness, creating inclusive and innovative cultures, educating on the ethical implications of bias, as well as guiding organizations on legal issues such as sexual harassment and discrimination. She regularly tackles complex issues such as racial tensions at the workplace, implicit and explicit bias in decision making, creating culturally competent workplaces, compensation equity, and ethical leadership and management.
