Organizational Development’s learning series Read the Wake Way is back for 2024! 

This year, the Diversity & Inclusion Council is sponsoring three book selections centering around various diversity, equity and inclusion topics. This year’s selections include:

Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man By Emmanuel Acho 

With the same open-hearted generosity that has made his video series a phenomenon, Acho explains the vital core of such fraught concepts as white privilege, cultural appropriation, and “reverse racism.” Discussion Sessions: Raleigh Campus: March 27, Cary Hospital: April 11, Virtual Session: April 12

Demystifying Disability: What to Know, What to Say, and How to be an Ally By Emily Ladau 

An approachable guide to being a thoughtful, informed ally to people with disabilities, with actionable steps for what to say and do (and what not to do) and how you can help make the world a more inclusive place. Discussion Sessions: Raleigh Campus: June 5, Cary Hospital: August 21, Virtual Session: July 16

Blind Spot: Hidden Biases of Good People By Mahzarin R. Banaji & Anthony G. Greenwald

Discussion Sessions: Raleigh Campus: September 18, Cary Hospital: October 24, Virtual Session: November 4

Additional books and sessions will be scheduled throughout the year. Register via WakeMedU (search Read the Wake Way); books and learning guides will be provided to all registered participants. WakeMed contact hours will be awarded for participation.
