AAUW of North Carolina invites you to attend “Race: Myth or Equity Imperative” with Paul James, President and Chief People Strategist of Lighthouse Strategy Consulting, Inc. This is the fifth program of our new virtual series, You Have the Power.
This session will explore race and diversity in the context of the series theme: “You Have the Power”. Using relevant cultural information and authentic dialogue about race and diversity our facilitator, Paul James, will offer ways to change (or impact) thinking and actions in today’s intercultural world. This may translate into positively affecting our own lives — and the lives of people in our communities, and beyond. The 60-minute session will be partly research-driven, including questions and answers.
