Negotiation expert Kwame Christian’s motto is, “The best things in life are on the other side of difficult conversations.” If we want a more equitable workplace, and a more equitable world, we have to talk to each other about race. But, for so many of us, that’s easier said than done. Many people avoid conversations about race because of fear — fear of discomfort, damaging important relationships, being misunderstood, “cancelled,” ostracized. How to Have Difficult Conversations About Race equips the reader with the skills needed to make these crucial conversations easier and more productive. This book is for anyone who has ever struggled to turn that passion into persuasion or been too afraid to speak up at work (or outside of it).
