Unfortunately, talking intelligently about race has been overrun by academia -- folks with many degrees, a college or university platform, and publications in traditionally acclaimed journals and books. As academics continue the important work of advancing knowledge about race and systemic oppression, such approaches can repel the very audiences who are seeking simple language to describe very complex lived experiences. Coaches, in varied environments such as leadership, health and career domains, also need to be comfortable discussing these topics in ways that support their own learning, their client's specific context and the goals of the engagement. In this highly interactive session, Dr. Shaunna Payne Gold will provide tips for a minimalist approach to talking about race, racism, anti-racism, systemic oppression, and its inherent intersections as a coach.
