Chicago native Michael Fosberg has spoken at nearly a thousand high schools, colleges, government agencies, corporations, law firms and not-for-profits over the past 15 years, utilizing his award winning autobiographical story, told in the form of a one-man play, as an entry point for meaningful dialogues on race and identity. His work with groups such as The Boeing Company, United Way Worldwide, PNC Financial Services, and The Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency is reshaping the way organizations talk about leadership, authenticity and inclusion.
Fosberg has been a frequent guest in the media speaking on these issues, and his latest book, “Nobody Wants to Talk About It: Race, Identity and the Difficulties in Forging Meaningful Conversations” offers readers seven important tools to engage in authentic dialogue. In 2011, he published his much-lauded memoir, “Incognito: An American Odyssey of Race and Self-Discovery.” He also launched a series of unique virtual e-learning programs using his play as the entry point for delving into uncomfortable conversations and, more recently, Incognito the Podcast: a deep dive into the variety of methods people use to collaborate inclusively.
