ChoicePoints Learning Partners With Georgetown University To Host 2-Day Virtual Workshop On Race Relations

If the year 2020 has taught us anything, it has opened our eyes to so many things such as the brevity of life itself, the volatility of the economy, the instability of job security, and the ongoing inequality of mankind to name a few. This abrupt, interruption of life provoked by the global pandemic has shaken us to the deepest parts of our humanity and awakened us to live in a new paradigm, a new normal going forward.

ChoicePoints Learning (CPL) in partnership with Georgetown University is bringing real and relevant solutions in how we deal with race relations within our homes, communities, organizations, and country at large. Introducing WOKE: Creating A New Normal, One Conversation At A Time is a 2-day virtual workshop experience held on Thursday, October 1 and Friday, October 2 from 9am EST to 4:30pm EST daily. Register right now to get complete details and secure your seat.

The purpose of WOKE is to strategically dismantle racism that arise daily by reaching across the aisles of race and choosing to act in ways that promote mutual understanding, appreciation and respect.

There have been so many sharp racial realities that have been hidden in plain sight, but now with the aid and accessiblity of video technology, many of those suppressed truths are rapidly surfacing and rearing their “ugly heads” in througout our society. Despite all of the progress that have been made in times past, there is still so much ground to cover and uncover in America. Our history truly tells a story of two different narratives depending on which racial lense you are viewing from.

This virtual 2-day intensive workshop is an experiential, personal exploration of race and its impact on our perspectives that aspires to inspire and transform the individual from the inside out. Regardless of where you land on the spectrum of unconscious bias and race awareness, it is becoming no longer acceptable to remain complicit and ignore the inevitability of these stark realities especially in America. “With a determination to go far beyond “talking about diversity”, this approach tested over several years, unlocks a depth of connection and learning unprecedented in mixed race company” says ChoicePoints Learning.
