Christine Pride and Jo Piazza with We Are Not Like Them
Drawing off of their best-selling novel, We Are Not Like Them, authors Christine Pride and Jo Piazza share a tale of race and friendship like no other. In this inspiring keynote, they will tell you the story of Jen and Riley, a Black woman and a White woman, whose friendship is indelibly altered by a tragic event. We Are Not Like Them takes us to uncomfortable places while capturing so much of what we are all thinking and feeling about race and gender. In this presentation and Q&A session, Christine and Jo share the importance of vulnerability, how to have hard conversations and navigate friction that comes up with coworkers, leaders, friends and family and the importance of connections at work and home. These are truly applicable lessons for the workplace and powerful conversation starters that anyone can use.
In this inspiring keynote, bestselling authors Christine Pride and Jo Piazza share a tale of motherhood based on their newest novel You Were Always Mine. The book revolves around provocative and timely questions about race, class and motherhood and what we are willing to sacrifice for the sake of marriage, friendship and our dreams. Just like their book, this presentation is a powerful way to look at motherhood and family through a new lens and how race plays out in these spaces.
