Conversation Circles are a mainstay of the Professional Dimensions Race Relations Initiative. These opportunities engage members and alliance partners in discussions about race and racism.
A small group of eight to ten women meet for five consecutive weeks in a person’s home for open, honest conversation assisted by two facilitators. The Circle will always meet at the same time and place with the same participants. We have learned that commitment to each other and continuity are essential to success.
We follow proven guidelines and the materials are designed to build connections, develop relationships, raise awareness and increase understanding about current race relations. The content of this programming was developed by YWCA of Southeast Wisconsin and PD member Paula Penebaker. It is through their generosity and assistance we are able to offer this rich and transformative experience for our members.
As members of Professional Dimensions we believe that this is a critical time to consider what we hold in common, what keeps us apart, and how we can work together to address race relations as women to build a better stronger, better place for all of us.
