As an African American man, I have a great deal of personal life experiences in this area. Its time for us to step outside of our comfort zones to tackle an issue that is apparent and effects us all. How to unlock the value that's embedded in diverse perspectives? In this interactive and content-rich program, your audience will discover the following: - How to use our differences as a springboard for innovation - How to reconcile different backgrounds to pursue a common goal - How to move beyond uncertainty to enriching ourselves - How to silence stereotypes in order to learn each unique individual in your environment In this talk, Courtney dives head first into one of the most uncomfortable topics in society, in hopes of creating a new space of understanding.
