Robin DiAngelo has facilitated trainings on racial and social justice issues for more than 20 years and coined the term "white fragility" in 2011. DiAngelo will discuss her concept of how white Americans are unknowingly socialized to be highly sensitive to and defensive in situations involving race -- that is, racially "fragile." She also emphasizes the perspectives and skills white people need to build in order to engage more constructively across race.
