The Women’s Race Lab:
Courageous Conversations

presented by Principal Consultant Rosalyn Taylor O’Neale & Partner and Chairperson Leslie Traub

Do you sometimes find that there is an uncomfortable, unspoken tension in relationships between women of different races? Do you have a longing to be more connected, and have more authentic and personal relationships across race?

Join Leslie Traub and Rosalyn Taylor O’Neale as they lead a meaningful exploration into the dynamics of cross-race relationships among women, constructing a path towards individual and collective wholeness and collaboration.

Women’s relationships across race can be challenged by the vestiges of our collective histories. We all have blind spots, and can be defensive in our relationships with each other. The ensuing gaps mean that the corporate and institutional women’s empowerment and leadership development efforts of the last 40 years benefit mostly white women, though not through intent of exclusion. This can leave women in fear of and suspicious of each other across groups. In spite of our longing to be connected and to feel seen and known by each other, as women we don’t take the personal and courageous actions to achieve authenticity and vulnerability in these relationships.

This webinar will highlight some of the historical challenges between white women and women of color, how to more effectively approach each other, and what to do and not do in establishing ally-ship.
