Hosting Courageous Conversations for More Equitable Communities

Wednesday, September 6, 2023 (1:00 PM - 2:00 PM) (CDT)


Hear how the Barry Community Foundation created space to explore diversity and equity with their community. We’ll learn from their experience on how you can implement this strategy in your community. With the goal of bringing forward diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) concepts to members of the community, three nonprofits in Barry County, Michigan came together to host Courageous Conversations for More Equitable Communities. 

Barry Community Foundation and their partners hosted three conversations in the series: what DEI is, mental health, and the return on investing in DEI in your community. You’ll hear the BCF organizers on how they created engaging spaces to address DEI in a homogenously white community.

 This webinar will offer encouragement and guidance on creating these spaces to engage people where they are. Learn how to put together conversation topics that can be difficult for people in an educational and respectful environment. In this webinar, you’ll learn actionable steps for creating, funding, facilitating, and evaluating this program in your community. Find more information on how to register HERE.

Any Iowa City or local members interested: Community Foundation of Johnson County will be screening it in the Schwab Auditorium (lower level of the Coralville Public Library). Reach out to Ellie Moore at for more details!
