Conversations with Colleagues

Conversations with Colleagues are group sessions in which peers emotionally support each other on topics ranging from fatigue and work/life balance to racial justice. The sessions are facilitated by licensed Duke social workers and are available to all Duke University faculty, students, and staff.

Racial Justice: Deeper Dive Series. This 6-week transformative experience focuses on exploring the origins of systemic racism, understanding our own implicit biases and learning what we can each do to have a positive impact on our local community. Sign up here.

Addressing Hate Crimes Against the Asian American Community Series. Since the start of the pandemic, we have seen an increase in aggression and violence toward the Asian American Community.  The recent shootings in the Atlanta area were tragic and acts as a reminder of the seriousness of this issue.  The Conversations with Colleagues team will be hosting sessions for staff and students to come together and share how they have been impacted.  Sessions are open to anyone in our community that would like to share, learn and show support.  Sign up here.

Train the Host. Sessions available for teams that want to host ongoing or tailored conversations on COVID fatigue, child care issues, or racial justice. Sign up for Train the Host.
