The Greater Twin Cities Chapter of the Association for Talent Development and Minority Business Growth Alliance Present

Breaking Taboos and Avoiding Minefields: Skills to Help Build Cross-Cultural Communication.


A Partnership Panel Event

Many of us want to reach across the racial divide, learn more about others, and build deeper relationships with those who are different. But often, just when we recognize we want to connect and communicate, a bit of discomfort creeps in. What if my words are misconstrued? What if my unconscious bias shows through? What if I say/do the wrong thing despite my “good intentions”?

The Twin Cities Chapter of the Association for Talent Development will partner with the Minority Business Growth Alliance to host an expert panel event on December 11, from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM: Breaking Taboos and Avoiding Minefields: Skills to Help Build Cross-Cultural Communication. The event will be an open and frank dialogue that explores ways we can build greater communication competence around race and communication in the workplace and in our everyday lives.
