Learn from colleagues who attended exhibit on race, presentation on advancing racial equity
Hear employees share their experiences and impressions from attending a Science Museum of Minnesota exhibit on race and a presentation on governmental practices aimed at advancing racial equity earlier this month.
Brown-bag lunch session
Noon to 1 p.m., Monday, Feb. 29
Room 319, City Hall
All employees are encouraged to attend the lunch session, even if you didn’t attend the science museum event. Employees who attended the exhibit and presentation Feb. 17 at the Science Museum of Minnesota are encouraged to come to the lunch session and provide their reflections from the program.
Event attendees saw the exhibit “Race: Are We So Different?” and listened to speakers discuss how Seattle used this exhibit to help the public gain a broader understanding of the implications of race and organize efforts to advance racial equity in the community.
The lunch session is organized by the City’s Office of Equity and Inclusion.
In addition to the brown-bag lunch session, here are some other resources on race:
- Ten things everyone should know about race.
- "RACE – The Power of an Illusion" (See a preview of the documentary).
- “Awkward, uncomfortable conversations about racism worth it.”
