    Jakada Imani: How to Run Equitable, Sustainable, and Results-Driven Organizations

    Jakada Imani: How to Run Equitable, Sustainable, and Results-Driven Organizations

    Today’s guest, spiritually rooted coach and trainer Jakada Imani, has spent his entire adult life helping Black people break free from the barriers which prevent them from reaching their full potential. His personal experience of being mentored in the social justice movement in his youth has driven his desire to help others in the same way. Jakada is currently the CEO of The Management Center.

    The Management Center (TMC) offers tools and training programs for managers and their teams, and what sets them apart is not just the quality of their courses but their prioritization of building racial equity within organizations, rather than just helping them produce better quantitative results.

    Robin DiAngelo: Nice Racism

    Robin DiAngelo: Nice Racism

    Today, we are joined by Dr. Robin DiAngelo, an Affiliate Associate Professor of Education at the University of Washington, who has numerous publications and books to her name, all centered around social and racial justice. By coining the term “white fragility” in an academic article in 2011, she has widely influenced the global dialogue on race. Her book, White Fragility: Why It's So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism, debuted on the New York Times bestseller list and remained there for three years! Our conversation today focuses on the themes she presents in her most recent book, Nice Racism: How Progressive White People Perpetuate Racial Harm.
