A Conversation about Race

With Cecil Hicks, Associate Vice Chancellor of Diversity, Equity, Access and Inclusion

University of Nebraska at Omaha

Thursday, October 29, 2020

12:00 – 1:00 p.m. CST/11:00 a.m. to 12:00 (MT)

In a time when having real, raw, and meaningful conversation about race feels tenuous and trepidatious, please join Cecil Hicks, an African American male, and Kelly Gering, a white female, in a transparent conversation about race.   With over 25 years of friendship and experience, Cecil and Kelly will share their candid look into having difficult conversations that matter where vulnerability and empathy take the lead.  Join the session to learn how mediators can engage their skills and conflict resolution training to facilitate conversations that make change.

Cecil serves as the Associate Vice Chancellor of Diversity, Equity, Access and Inclusion for the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO).  As the senior diversity officer for the campus, Cecil is responsible for engaging strategic leadership that enhances and sustains diversity, while promoting a culture of inclusivity, accessibility, and equity through the creation and implementation of initiatives that contribute to the overall success of faculty, staff, and students.

Kelly is the owner of Shared Story, a private conflict resolution practice that provides mediation, facilitation, and training services to families, organizations, faith-based entities, and the community at large.  Kelly also teaches in Creighton University’s Negotiation and Conflict Resolution graduate program and serves as a board member for the Nebraska Mediation Association.

This course has been approved for one hour of Continuing Mediation Education for Parenting Act Mediators by the Nebraska Office of Dispute Resolution.
