Everyday Conversations on Race is a cross-race conversation on race. It brings people together across differences for open comfortable conversations about race in a casual setting.
This is crucial for organizations and businesses that want to build cultures of inclusion that support diversity, equity and innovation.

We have guests from different backgrounds, race, age, gender, sexual orientation, etc., senior executives, ex-felons, musicians, educators and just every day people. The show is insightful, enlightening and entertaining.
Our mission is to disrupt the way race is talked about, break racial silos and have a global impact on how people interact with each other.

This podcast is so wonderful. Simma has a great gift for becoming a true affirmer of each guest, so that hard topics are made available, defenses are down, doors of understanding are opened and a way for true conversation to take place is modeled. You will learn about so much cool stuff too!
Simma also facilitates conversations in the workplace to create doors where walls exist, and I can only imagine these are life changing for the corporate culture. Really...do yourself a favor and tune in,
I love the tactical, honest and real rawness Simma delivers in this podcast. I hit subscribe and definitely can’t wait for the next show!!!
Finally No Screaming
