How can you have compassionate conversations around racism, transphobia and all forms of oppression? How can you listen and speak your truth in a way that inspires communities of difference across the globe? Melissa Andrada, a Creative DEI Strategic Advisor, Facilitator and Healer will share vulnerable stories, practical thinking and strategies based on her work with clients that include Radical Candor, AXIS Dance, Google and City Surf Project, alongside her own personal lived experiences of oppression as a queer Filipina American born in Nigeria who came to the States as an undocumented immigrant.
This session is a highly artistic experience that involves meditation, thought-provoking questions and deeply personal stories, designed for folks who are keen to learn how to move through the discomfort of difficult conversations to create a more loving and equitable workplace.
After watching the talk, take a few minutes to think about the following.
1. What is your truth? What would you say if you weren’t afraid?
2. How can you speak your truth to inspire people to take sustained action?
