Some questions raised, discussed, and deserving of more discussion:
How can a person learn more about how to act and talk in a professional situation? What are more resources about this? (I am thinking of doing a webinar or live event about this, and thinking about people I can enlist to the cause. Thanks for this idea.)
How can white people contribute to diversity?
If you have had a distant or very hierarchical relationship to authority figures, how can you try to speak and network on more of a peer level?
