DEAR WHITE WOMAN, PLEASE COME HOME author talk

June 27 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

Have you found cross-racial friendships difficult to nurture? While diving into Kimberlee’s book, Dear White Woman, Please Come Home, together we will explore how to racially diversify our friend groups, how to show up for and with colleagues in ways that disrupt historic patterns, and how to intentionally and thoughtfully be in community with one another. Kimberlee is a dynamic presenter who helps participants move from their unconscious bias towards cross-racial understanding and solidarity. 

 Whether you’re a white woman or a woman of color, do you wonder if a genuine bond and connection across the white/women of color racial divide is even possible? Come hear how Kimberlee is learning to dig into this work in surprisingly vulnerable and creative ways. As a bonus, Kimberlee will share her 6 trademarked tools. This workshop is open to everyone, inclusive of all races and genders, to explore the power of cross-racial relationships and solidarity.

 Presentation followed by Q&A

About the presenter: Kimberlee is first and foremost a humanist, a deep believer in what is possible when humanity is centered. Her mix of authenticity and raw truth gives permission for those around her to choose progress over perfection and bring their full selves into the room. Kimberlee received a B.A. in Foreign Language Education from the University of Maryland, as well as an M.S. in education from Dominican University. She currently lives in Seattle with her partner. In addition to being an award-winning author, she is the DEI manager for Kitsap County in Washington state.
