We talk a lot about speaking up when we see something which isn’t right – but how many of us are comfortable doing so, or are confident that we can have a productive conversation which genuinely influences the person we’re challenging?

For inspiration, we will be discussing a short video which has been very popular with our community – Loretta J. Ross’ TED talk.

In this bold, actionable talk, activist and scholar Loretta J. Ross gives us a toolkit for what she calls a “call-in culture” and shares strategies for having challenging conversations while still creating space for growth, forgiveness and even friendship.

Role:

Loretta J. Ross is a professor at Smith College and educates people on how to counter call-out culture in schools, businesses and relationships. She encourages people to build a human rights movement that focuses on “calling in” as an effective way to challenge hate.

We encourage you to watch the TEDTalk (14 min watch) before attending the event:

We will start the session with an introduction and summary from our team, then participants will be put into smaller groups to allow for deeper reflection and conversation.

Diversity Coffee Connect aim to provide a safe space to connect with others across the sectors to have important, informal conversations about equality, diversity and inclusion. These sessions are open to leaders at all levels and stages across social care, social work and health in Scotland.
