WEBINAR 8: BLACK LIVES MATTER, LET’S HAVE THAT CONVERSATION…..

It has never been more important to come together and have an open dialogue about Culture, Heritage and identity (CHI). On the 25th May, George Floyd, a 46-year old African-American man, was murdered in broad daylight by the police in Minneapolis.

YPF’s would therefore like to explore with a panel of professionals in the field of open CHI dialogue, to support of our members in how to hold a conversation with young people.

With that in mind, we will be holding a Webinar via zoom.

Any realistic chance of tackling such deeply complex problems (such as structural racism within society) and bring about meaningful change has to begin with our deep desire to want to connect with those whose experiences may differ from our own. It is so important to be curious, to challenge our own thinking, and to be willing to step out of our comfort zones to find new ways to act towards each other with respect, kindness and understanding.
