Throughout its history, CBI has collaborated with community partners to offer dialogues and facilitated conversations around issues of equity and inclusion. To us, conversation is more than “just talk;” rather, it is an essential first step toward building the relationships and connections that can create a more equitable and just community. We believe being able to examine some of our community’s most intractable problems is a key skill that helps people wake up to discrimination and injustice, interrupt inequitable systems and structures, and step up to champion equal rights, access, and opportunity.
Our conversation model continues to be adapted for a variety of audiences and topics. Please click here to contact us or fill out the form on this page to discuss how we could support a virtual or in-person conversation with your organization.
Throughout 2021, dialogues on our recent Stakeholders Breakfast theme of Fault Lines will help us explore the divisions that have become more apparent over the last year. Visit our Things To Do page to join an upcoming conversation to learn how you can respond to Fault Lines in our community with hope and courage.
