With the verdict reached, the trail is over, but the conversation is just beginning. After speaking in an open and civil manner about difficult topics like race and gender, participants keep talking, but now it’s about each of us as individuals instead of the characters in the play.
Our facilitator guides this deeper level of conversation, of course grounded in the topics from the case, but also whatever’s on the hearts and minds of audience members based on what they saw and how it made them feel. We don’t limit participants to what Ms. Wade and Mr. Golden talked about, and often discuss a lot more—including: preference vs. prejudice, allyship, power, privilege, and influence, assumptions based on class, intersectionality, and evolving realities in the USA.
We know based on more than a decade of feedback that conversations started within your organization often continue for days, weeks, and even months after the event. We offer an optional follow-up conversation between 1-2 weeks after the event takes place, bringing back the same facilitator for an additional hour of discussion with your audience.
