"The Conversation" - A book talk and fireside chat with Robert Livingston

Sponsored by

This event is over.

Event Details:

Join us for a webinar on "The Conversation" featuring social psychologist and leading expert on the science underlying bias and racism in organizations Dr. Robert Livingston. He will kick off the session by sharing insights from his book “The Conversation: How Seeking and Speaking the Truth About Racism Can Radically Transform Individuals and Organizations", in which he provides a compass for all those seeking to begin the work of anti-racism. In The Conversation, Dr. Livingston addresses three simple but profound questions: What is racism? Why should everyone be more concerned about it? What can we do to eradicate it? 

For Livingston, the difference between a solvable problem and a solved problem is knowledge, investment, and determination. And the goal of making organizations more diverse, equitable, and inclusive is within our capability. Livingston’s lifework is showing people how to turn difficult conversations about race into productive instances of real change.

Dr. Livingston will then engage in a fireside chat with professor and Stanford VMware Women's Leadership Innovation Lab Director Shelley Correll and Lab Postdoctoral Research Fellow Dr. Malissa Alinor.

The webinar will last approximately 75 minutes. We will reserve time for audience Q&A towards the end of the session. Live real-time captioning will be available. The webinar will be recorded and posted to the password protected section of our website for a limited time afterwards.

This event is open to Stanford faculty, staff, students and affiliates. Live captioning will be made available.
