How do we begin to heal racism?
According to Dr. Tiffany Jana, one of the leading educators in diversity, equity, and inclusion, healing happens through “concentric circles of care.” We begin with ourselves, by reckoning with our own shadows and our own culpability in systems of oppression. And that’s step one.
We then need to extend ourselves and engage in our families and neighborhoods, in our workplaces, and in our communities—and to commit to acting on our newfound awareness. As Dr. Jana says, if we’re doing this right, it will be uncomfortable … and that’s a necessary part of the process.
And then we need to extend even further—to move out of our “silos” and create a matrix of unity around the world.
With “Healing Racism,” Dr. Jana will be leading us in a three-part webinar series, offered for free by Sounds True, beginning Wednesday, June 24, at 8 pm ET | 5 pm PT. In conversation with Sounds True founder Tami Simon, Dr. Jana will discuss:
“We have the opportunity to reshape the world we live in with mindful intention toward inclusion and justice,” teaches Dr. Jana. We need brave hearts right now to do this work, and to deeply engage with ourselves, our communities, and the world. This is our journey to walk together. Please come join us.
