The event, which is a continuum of the first Town Hall Meeting held in Chicago in 2003, will focus on how to work effectively across racial and ethnic groups and will consider the following:
- What happens during cross-race communications in work situations
- The underlying elements that cause communications to break down
- How we can learn to solve - or avoid - such breakdowns in order to work together productively
