While intentions have changed in the business community, true inclusion remains elusive. Quite likely the primary challenge for most organizations is that inclusion remains an abstract and vague thing. Even leaders that truly want greater inclusion have a hard time explaining in a clear and concise way what that means. Inclusion is commonly viewed as an attitude or the absence of hatred and intentional discrimination. This webinar is built around a tangible model of inclusion, including common barriers, a way of assessment and practices to employ toward greater inclusion.

Renaissance in the Belly of a Killer Whale uniquely tells the story of three young women’s love affair with Harlem from youth to young adulthood through a montage of spoken word poetry, theatre, dance, and song. It explores the conflicts in coming to terms with a gentrified Harlem. The characters grapple with the positive aspects of gentrification, such as increased security, new businesses, and more resources, but also the negative aspects, such as displacement of residents, higher prices, and a cultural loss. Through stories deeply moving and uproariously funny, the performers bring to life their home neighborhood, the world famous village of Harlem, and highlight one vital idea that rings true for them all: They wish to establish a new Harlem Renaissance that will embrace the inevitable change to their neighborhood while revitalizing the rich culture of its past.
