Structured Dialogues are a series of facilitated small group conversations that use a racial identity framework to help individuals, and by consequence workplaces, develop anti-racist thoughts and actions.
FACE Race accomplishes this by using content derived from books, articles, and other media to facilitate conversations that promote internal reflection and critical analysis of societal inequity. The process of the structured dialogues supports individuals to engage in difficult cross-racial and race-based conversations that help those involved develop authentic relationships that center trust and psychological safety by promoting individual and system-wide anti-racist thoughts and actions. We believe that structured dialogues are a powerful tool for individuals and companies to engage in sustainable anti-racist change.
