Nita Mosby Tyler

Diversity, Inclusivity and Equity have become words that can either inspire understanding or ignite discourse. At the core of all of these discussions is race. This sometimes-uncomfortable topic can cause each of us to retreat or advance in our understanding of one another. During this interactive, fireside-chat-style session, Nita will explore the advantage of understanding race to further develop our leadership expert power, steps to lead authentic and gracious conversations about race, and how-to’s to promote a culture of inclusion using the lens of race as a guide. Participants will practice using several tools and learning circle opportunities for creating race/cultural responsiveness in their personal and professional lives.

Dr. Nita Mosby Tyler is the Chief Catalyst for The Equity Project.
