Countering racism is a complex challenge. There are a lot of factors at play - from individual to group to systemic factors.  The topics here reflect that range and address specific critical topics.

Some, like being a recovering racist, are personal. Some, like the five chapters in the story of racism, are systemic (and historical). Some are a combination, such  as White privilege.  And some are organizational, like the challenge facing the C-Suite.

“A vision is not just a picture of what could be; it is an appeal to our better selves, a call to become something more.”

Rosabeth Moss Kanter
