Discuss important issues with NLI's Community Book Club!

We are pleased to invite you to the Community Book Club's 12th book offering! The club will be reading The Conversation: How Seeking and Speaking the Truth About Racism Can Radically Transform Individuals and Organizations by Robert Livingston. Hundreds of community members have contributed to ongoing dialogue on social justice and important race-related topics. We now invite you to join us for this topic on August 23rd as we begin The Conversation discussions. The group will convene weekly on Tuesdays until September 27th. Guests will participate in discussions led by NLI facilitator GiGi Elder. Participants should be ready to discuss the Introduction and Chapters 1 & 2 at the first session.  


About the book:
Racial equity is achievable. But the honest conversations we need to have to foster that change can be uncomfortable - and are all too often avoided. Drawing together years of academic research from the fields of psychology, sociology, management, and behavioural economics, Robert Livingston has created the ultimate solutions-oriented guide for those who want to transform the social order, but are unsure of how to go about it. With clarity, wit and deep understanding, The Conversation aims to combat this uncertainty by increasing confidence, capacity, and commitment to engaging in racial dialogue. In helping us to better understand how effective discussion is key to resolving the problem of racism in society and the workplace, The Conversation is an essential tool for uprooting entrenched biases and transforming well-intentioned statements on diversity into concrete actions and measurable outcomes.



August 23 - September 27, 2022

Tuesdays from 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm (an optional 'Wind Down' session that extends the conversation until 8:30 pm will be offered each week)
