Presented by: Darryl & Gwen Smith
As organizations continue to focus their efforts on becoming more diverse, the racial power dynamics that exists, makes it difficult for the voices of People of Color (POC) to be heard and valued. Companies have become more accepting of hiring the brown face but not listening to the brown voice. If they want to get ahead in the US, people of color have had to learn how to navigate white spaces. Some of the challenges that POC face when leading in white spaces include: culture dynamics, code switching (language), hairstyles, and fashion. Come have a dialogue as we share our experiences and discuss ways in which we can navigate these spaces in love.
Primary Audience: Leaders who desire to grow and understand the realities and dynamics of leading people of color
