Conflict in the Workplace: Introduction to Tools and Analysis Rooted in Racial Equity
Sandy Bacharach and Jae R. Tai, Resolutions Northwest
Where do you encounter conflict in your work, and how do you engage with it productively? Whether conflict arises one-on-one or throughout an entire system, every conflict touches on dynamics of racial equity and diversity. Each person’s identity and life experiences intertwine with the conflict to create unintended impacts…or present an opportunity for a deeper human connection that supports better outcomes for all. In this mini-workshop, we will introduce some fundamental tools and frameworks and have a chance to practice.
