Diversity Awareness Partnership

Listen. Talk. Learn. Awareness Campaign

As we work towards moving forward, Diversity Awareness Partnership is committed to strengthening our community by facilitating important and difficult discussions on race relations and unconscious bias. Our hope is that our community rebuilds by talking to one another, learning more about communities we have limited exposure to, and bridging our divides through awareness and education.

Diversity Awareness Partnership is offering Free Listen.Talk.Learn: Dialogue Across Difference Facilitation Trainings to convene leaders and members of the community, so that we can start our collective healing process. Any individual or group interested in learning how to navigate difficult dialogue on race relations and unconscious bias are encouraged to register for these trainings.


Listen to a recording of Reena Hajat Carroll, our Executive Director, discussing the importance of racial inclusion and dialogue in the region on St. Louis Public Radio.
