Six Seconds, The Emotional Intelligence Network
Looking for strategies on starting the work on how to be anti racist? In the urgency of this moment, Six Seconds brings together a range of experts and leaders in Diversity, Equity, Inclusion to have honest and emotional conversations to help with starting the work on how to be anti racist.
It’s hard work, emotional labor, heart work. But it is work we all must do. For too long we have not had the painful conversations about race. In this video meet experts for strategies going beyond “supporting my Black friend” and inviting all of us to do the work to move towards equity.
