In this roundtable discussion, we continue discussing community questions about how to support anti-racism within our work, and specifically diving into how to host hard conversations when everyone is gathering virtually, and what to consider when the focus of your work feels "neutral", and separate from race and racial equity.

Featuring Sheri Brady, Jennifer Splansky Juster, Paul Schmitz, Tracy Timmons-Gray, and Junious Williams.

I'm just listening to this podcast today. Why have I not been listening to your podcasts previously? I have no idea. Thanks so much for your thoughtful and helpful work! I always appreciate your perspectives and will be backtracking on more of your productions.
