How to Achieve Racial Justice through Organizational Transformation: Models that Work
November 30, 2022
What models are effective at advancing racial justice and sparking organizational change? Wednesday, November 30th, the Institute of Politics and Institutional Antiracism and Accountability Project at the Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation hosted a conversation with two pioneering architects of racial equity tools for the workplace, higher education and non-profits. Gail Christopher, Executive Director, National Collaborative for Health Equity and creator of the Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation (TRHT) framework; and Glenn Singleton, Founder and President of Pacific Educational Group, creator of the Courageous Conversation about Race, delved into the models they’ve developed and implemented with communities and organizations over several decades. Kim Janey, President and CEO of Economic Mobility Pathways (EMPath), and former Mayor of Boston, moderated the conversation.
This discussion is a part of the “Looking Back, Paying it Forward” speaker series, cohosted by the Institute of Politics and Institutional Antiracism and Accountability Project at the Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation. The series examines how reparative practices, truth commissions, and institutional reckoning with structural oppression provide ways forward for equitable change. What can be learned from national and international examples? How are leading racial justice experts addressing the current climate of attacks on justice, equity, and democracy?
