    How racism shapes farming and land access in the U.S.

    How racism shapes farming and land access in the U.S.

    Behind every ingredient, bite, and meal we eat is a farmer's story. 500M smallholder farms are supporting 2B people globally. Yet, the majority of the world’s hungry are farmers. U.S. agriculture today appears to be as segregated as it was a century ago, with farmers of color at a significant disadvantage. Today, they cultivate less than half of one percent of the country’s farmland. Dr. Larissa Estes-White, DrPH shares her family legacy in farming across the U.S. and Philippines. She tells stories of racist land ownership, food sovereignty, and hopes to build a just circular food economy. Dr. Estes-White is the Executive Director of ALL IN Alameda County.

    Taking risks without being at risk

    Taking risks without being at risk

    Remember what it is like being in a workshop or a group meeting to collaborate on a specific project or task? Awkward silences, loud voices dominating, and lack of direction in the conversation. We have all been there. In this episode, we talk with Hunter Gatewood, who shares group agreements that build a culture of power-sharing, safety, and trustworthiness so everyone can take risks without being at risk. Previously a social worker, Hunter Gatewood is the Owner of Signal Key Consulting and an instructor and coach for team leaders.

    Connect with Hunter on Linkedin and Signal Key Consulting. Participate in the Six Culture Builders for Team Leaders this September and attend the free monthly Recharging Series class today.

    What the environment can teach us about self-actualization

    What the environment can teach us about self-actualization

    We all want to realize our true potential and unlock our best selves. This is self-actualization. But what helps organizations achieve self-actualization to deliver equitable and just services and products to communities most historically marginalized? Ronnell Hampton says we like to think it’s only nurture - but in his personal experiences and work, he has found it’s also more often nature and the built environment. Ronnell Hampton is the Principal Equity Strategy at a government municipality and the Founder of Growing Greatness Now.

    How to talk about race with White peers

    How to talk about race with White peers

    White tears. Coddling. Brown pain. If there’s one thing that connects the 2020 social justice movement with the rest of us, it’s the fatigue that can come from having conversations on race and equity with our White community. In this episode, we talk with racial reconciliation and community engagement leader John Bobb-Semple about why so many of us dread these dialogues - and how we can approach them.

    Connect with John on Linkedin and Hawks Agency.
