Racial equity The More We Know Community Show with Dr. Sylvia

    • Society & Culture

Racial Equity.  What do you think when you hear this term?
As you can imagine, racial equity may mean different things to different people based on who they are, their values, and their beliefs.  The murder of George Floyd sparked national and international outrage and caused many organizations to step up their DEI efforts and even embrace race equity in the workplace.  During this show Dr. Sylvia and her guest Chrysta Wilson dive into race equity, what it means and if it’s achievable.
Chyrsta is the founder of Wilson and Associates Coaching and Consulting, a woman-led firm, who partners with dynamic purpose-driven people and organizations that want to create racial equity and social change.
 
Chrysta spent the last 22 years supporting efforts that advance equity and justice in communities across the United States.  This work is her calling:  it was born from the stories her parents told her about their growing up during legalized segregation in “Jim Crow” North Carolina. It was born from her own navigation of covert and overt racism and classism that she experienced in her childhood growing up in the same region.  Ultimately, she is committed to supporting people, organizations, and institutions in their transformations, so they are better positioned to accomplish their vision connected to equity, liberation, and justice.
