Doing Anti-Racist Business: Dislodging and Dismantling Racism with the 4REALS
There is a vast difference between talking about racism and doing the work of antiracism. Using their proven 4REALS method, Sheila M. Beckford and E. Michelle Ledder equip you to move beyond recognizing systemic racism in the corporate sector to actually dislodging and dismantling it.
REAL TALK places the wording necessary for discussions about racism and anti-racism in direct contact with how to say the uncomfortable things, do the necessary things, and remain responsible to best business models throughout. REAL STRATEGIES prioritize ACTION-NOW Learning Engagements which center actions primed to create externally evidenced anti-racist outcomes. REAL TIME incorporates role plays from business scenarios to interrupt and dismantle racism in the moment. REAL CHANGE requires accountability and measurement. So, tracking modules, assessment paradigms, success and failure markers, and agile strategies for making on-the-go shifts and avoiding common obstacles are provided.
Alongside your commitment to move beyond talk and into informed, change-driven action, Doing Anti-Racist Business is your playbook.
