LEAD: Bridging the Divide—Uniting Against Racism

LEAD, Leading Equity And Diversity, is a series of conversations where attendees have the opportunity to hear from a diverse group of guests who lead DEI initiatives. This LEAD conversation will address the need to have people of all social identities (across race, gender, class, sexual orientation, etc.) involved in the fight against systemic racism. It’s human nature to be drawn to people who are similar to us and our desire to bond with our community intensifies under threat. How can we avoid an “us vs. them” mentality and mobilize as a unified force against racism? Featured guest Howard Ross will discuss pathways to bonding and bridging across difference.
Howard Ross is a lifelong social justice advocate and is considered one of the world’s seminal thought leaders on identifying and addressing unconscious bias. He is the author of ReInventing Diversity: Transforming Organizational Community to Strengthen People, Purpose and Performance, and The Washington Post best seller, Everyday Bias: Identifying and Navigating Unconscious Judgments in Our Daily Lives. His latest book, Our Search for Belonging: How Our Need to Connect Is Tearing Us Apart won the 2019 Nautilus Book Award Gold Medal for Social Change and Social Justice. Ross founded Cook Ross Inc., one of the nation’s leading diversity and inclusion consultancies. He sold the company in July 2018 and founded Udarta Consulting, LLC. Ross is also a former rock ‘n roll musician and has taught meditation and mindfulness for more than 20 years, including his role as co-founder and lead facilitator for the Inner Journey Seminars.
