‘Silence is a Statement: A Deep Dive Conversation on Race’ will help attendees understand both sides and feel more comfortable with this awkward topic

ELLICOTT CITY, MARYLAND – January 8, 2018 – Local resident, Allison Manswell, CPLP, author of Listen In: Crucial Conversations on Race in the Workplace, is hosting a public event to engage the community in a dialogue that improves interactions around race.

The event includes a combination of research, open dialogue and proven suggestions for how to improve race relations. Focus areas include: 

– Why don’t we talk about race?
