A controversy around hiring practices and culture in the UUA recently arose around the hiring of a new staff member. Ongoing struggles over how best to deal with race and organizational politics bubbled to the surface. The president of the UUA resigned, followed by two other high level staff members. We will discuss these current events as well as the larger historical context in which they occur, and we will share with and listen to one another in the hope that we can use this as an opportunity to have genuine and respectful dialogue around a sensitive topic. Please come with an open mind and an open heart.
