Re: What a week! Who's got an NPV? #NPV
I’m really heartened that we are pushing back and calling folks out in our community who have said things and done things that have a hurtful impact. Some of these individual are coming from a place of fear, some from blindness. I am wondering when—and how—at conferences and events we can make space for conversation. Calling out is step 1 of the process, but if that’s all that’s happening, I’m worried we’ll never really help folks grow. They’ll just watch their tongues and harbor resentment. Essentially they’ll go underground … and that’s not good.
Any thoughts about that? Would SinC or some other org. sponsor an forum to discuss these topics in our community at Bcon or some other conference? I’m happy to reach out to Lori Rader-Day and ask.
