Cracking The Shell on Race-Ism
You cannot fix what you don’t understand
If the majority knew of the root of this evil then the road to its cure would not be long.Albert Einstein
The untold history is a festering wound that prevents healing.
It will take all of us doing our part to build a world that is just and equitable for all people.
Hypocrisy in the US results from incongruence between what we espouse – Equal Justice Under the Law – and the reality experienced in our daily lives.
Designed by Reverend Esther Jones-Alley and delivered in collaboration with inviteCHANGE LLC, "Cracking The Shell on Race-Ism" is an on-demand learning program offering a cohesive thought process for any audience to understand the depth and breadth of the issues, and can be combined with enterprise DEIJ initiatives for comprehensive and sustainable change.
The curriculum pulls together a deep historical perspective about what generates the complex issues of social injustice, racial inequity, non-diversity, community conflict, and unconscious bias to bring forth the underlying causes. The learning experience touches on the following aspects:
- Mindset shift that touches and moves hearts
- Changing behaviors that restores humanity in all relations
- Learning that applies systemically to the talent experience.
