Let's Talk About Race: Normalizing Race Conversations
Explore how normalizing race conversations can begin to break down systematic and individual racial prejudices with Christy Walker, Director of Diversity and Inclusion at Central Oregon Community College. In partnership with COCC.

This brief informational training explores the notion that the more we are able to talk about racial issues, the more we can begin to break down systemic and individualized racial prejudices. While it is not meant to be a cure all, it is inviting folks to engage in conversations that create disruptions.

Christy Walker, is the Director of Diversity and Inclusion at Central Oregon Community College. Her former role at the college was as the Latinx College Preparation Program Coordinator. She is an active committee member and chair of the Central Oregon Latino Partnership Program, the current facilitator for the Latinx Success Initiative, a committee member for the LGBTQ+ Education work group, and is on the HECC Equity Advisory Council. She facilitates several trainings on equity, diversity, and inclusion for COCC and the Central Oregon community.

This program will also be available in Spanish: https://www.deschuteslibrary.org/calendar/event/60610
