Drawing on autoethnographic narrative reflections, this article explores the experiences of members of the Professional and Organizational Development Network in Higher Education and the HBCU Faculty Development Network during the organizations’ first joint conference. Using the theory of professional interaction as a framework, we seek to understand how effectively the organizations manifested their interest in increased racial inclusion and collaboration.
