Connections: Writer and diversity trainer Nanette D. Massey on how to have conversations about race

Oct 31, 2019

We’re joined by Nanette D. Massey, a writer and diversity and inclusion trainer. Massey lives in Buffalo, but will be in Rochester for several upcoming events during which she’ll educate audiences about racism, white fragility, and more.

She recently wrote an op-ed for the Democrat and Chronicle and USA Today, responding to a local business coach who expressed his frustration as an “old white guy” who is “increasingly blamed for all the ills of society, both real and imagined.”

Massey joins us in studio to discuss her process and how she facilitates conversations about race. In studio:
