2nd Edition of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Book in Process
Our co-founders Ilsa Govan and Caprice Hollins have been hard at work rewriting the 2nd edition of their book, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion: Strategies for Facilitating Conversations on Race but paused to say hello and send us a picture from their writing retreat last month. If you've taken our Train the Trainer workshop, you'll be familiar with this book because it's used as a foundation for this workshop.
When the first edition was written, Caprice and Ilsa were only doing in-person workshops, so a significant amount of new content for the 2nd edition involves strategies for virtual conversations. They share lessons, both technical and adaptive, they've learned from the two years of holding almost all of their workshops online. It also includes reflections about the way the context of our social and political moments come into trainings as a third person to be included. They've also been making notes of stories in workshops and new insights on facilitation since the book was first published in 2015 and will be integrating them in the conversation.
The description of the book is as follows:
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is written for those who are interested in taking on a transformative role within their organization. It is our intent to better equip facilitators with the necessary tools and strategies for dealing with stumbling blocks that often arise when people are brought together to talk about some of the most difficult issues facing our country today—racism, power, and privilege. This book is designed for those who are first-time facilitators and for the more experienced who want to improve their facilitation skills.
