If not us, who? If not now, when?

After two successful years of hosting the It’s Time to Talk forum of race, we have engaged more than 1,000 women and men in conversations about race, discrimination, unconscious bias, and cultural competency in our community. The first two years of It’s Time to Talk were about building awareness and capacity. Now we must plan, take action, and welcome more community members. For It’s Time to Talk 2017, we believe that by creating a safe space to engage with multiple voices, we can embrace the reality of multiple perspectives. At the event, the real work begins, as our community shares, works, and learns together.
