    This lunch-hour chat with Dr. Danni Green and Vicky Lyle will “go off the reservation” to explore phrases from the “peanut gallery” that can result in some of us “spazzing” when we hear them. The origins and sentiments of many word choices can challenge even the most enlightened. To many, such comments are simply a colloquial saying.  Yet to others, they are highly offensive. The “rule of thumb” is that language may cozy-up to a “tipping point” yet should not go overboard. The goal of this session is to bravely awaken us to what and how we speak for the purpose of fostering education and awareness bringing us closer together rather than further apart. The only prerequisite is that each of us extend grace through the enlightenment process. 

    About the Speakers:
