Educate Yourself About Race to be a Better Leader
It's time for deep conversations that will be hard
I’ve had a lot of conversations with corporate leaders over the past couple of weeks that have all focused on variations of the same question, “What can I do to help end racism?” This is one of those times when I’m glad that the conventional wisdom on how to coach others is that it’s more about the questions than the answers. I’m good at asking questions, but on the topic of ending racism, don’t have a lot of answers based on long-term personal experience.
Like a lot of other white people, I’ve learned more about racism and its impact in the past two weeks than I have in the rest of my life combined. I’m not at all proud of that fact; the lessons were certainly there to be learned if I had been paying closer attention. That said, I’m grateful to be on the learning journey I’m now on and to be sharing it with so many others who have a new commitment to bringing more social justice, equality of opportunity and grace to the world.
A learning journey moves through four stages of competence.
