#TEDTalkTuesday: Brave space a.k.a. turning collisions into connections

Yesterday, I had the privilege of attending a session at GISA on Implicit Bias facilitated by Trinity’s very own Gina Quiñones () and Lauren Kinnard ().

Lauren and Gina began the session by setting norms, challenging us to level up from a safe space to a brave space. How might we dare to be brave enough to express what we think and feel? What if we listen to others to learn?

They challenged us to consider how might we turn our own cultural collisions into more meaningful connections and shared the following TED talk.

I am grateful to work and learn with brave leaders, and I am thankful for all who trust enough to share brave space.
