Reflect. Engage. Connect.
This talk was originally developed by VCC at the request of Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s (MIT) Office of Minority Education in order to help staff and faculty communicate better with those who have less power and privilege. It explores communicating honestly with oneself, mindfully with others, and turning failure into success. (talk, 1-on-1)
