    1. Giving peers permission to engage in dialogue about race and holding a lofty expectation that they will stay engaged in these conversations throughout the semester or year is the first of the four agreements for courageous conversation. While initially, some participants may be eager to enter into these conversations, our experience indicates that the more personal and thus risky these topics get, the more difficult it is for participants to stay committed and engaged."

    1. Facilitators don't have to be experts in the topic — they can be learners too!

      yup, and I think having this distinction and also being clear/honest about it - and being transparent in our own learning process.

      I think a challenge we've had with some online educators, is they have positioned themselves as an expert, and shared content from a place of 'authority' that was a bit rocky.

      The advice then gets taken as 'set in stone', next thing you know a rough idea goes viral and becomes 'best practice' when it was really 'some person trying to figure something out'

      By being more transparent in where you are at, it can then encourage more feedback and discussion, and also a deepening of the facilitators understanding.
