“… you are not defective, you are protective – something has happened to you. There is a difference.”
How do you actually create leadership accountability within an organization that allows people the space and practice to recognize their own triggers when discussing matters of race, diversity, inclusion, or racial equity hiring practices?
Where do people find the support they need to navigate toxic racial stress at work or school, which accumulates in the body over time, contributing to significant health factors leading to dis-ease in the emotional body?
When one thinks of DEI work (Diversity, Equity & Inclusion), it often feels heavy, causing our brains to explode. Within the culture of DEI work, my approach is counter-cultural. We need to get out of our heads, into our bodies, and heal what divides us.
You are not alone. I love the messy- roll- up- our -sleeves work. I got you. And, together we’re going to navigate our way through!
