Is it okay to ask a colleague a question about their identity? Have you given a compliment that generated an unexpected negative reaction? Have you received an identity-based comment that felt hurtful? Join us to discuss these questions and how we can work towards matching our intention and its impact.

Speaker: Melissa Segal, LCSW, is a licensed clinical social worker who has provided individual, couples, and family counseling; facilitated a variety of support and educational groups; and implemented professional development and training. She is currently the Senior Business Manager of Duke Neurobiology and serves on the Neurobiology Diversity and Inclusion Committee, the SOM Diversity and Inclusion Council, and the SOM Harassment Taskforce.
