“Power without love is reckless and abusive, and love without power is sentimental and anemic. Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice, and justice at its best is power correcting everything that stands against love.”
-Martin Luther King, Jr.
As leaders at 21/64, we have thought a lot about how will we use our power effectively, humbly and courageously - especially on racial justice.
Clients and colleagues tell us that they come to 21/64 to learn how to facilitate difficult conversations about topics such as wealth and privilege, legacy and next generation engagement, family dynamics and multigenerational decision making. And now in this moment of racial reckoning that is literally tearing at the fabric of our country, clients and colleagues are asking us how to facilitate difficult conversations about race.
While we don’t claim to be experts on racial justice, we do know about creating awareness, catalyzing courage, creating safe space, active listening, and framing and facilitating discussions on difficult topics. The founder of Courageous Conversations, Simon Greer and his colleague Tina Grace will join 21/64 to bring this program to life, with tools from the Nantucket Project. We are grateful for their collaboration and the 30 years of social justice, convening skills and lived experience as a person of color in America.
Courageous Conversations on Race and Leadership will unfold over 5 weeks. The journey commences Friday, September 23, 2022 with a screening and discussion of the film “American Neighbor: Courageous Conversations on Race". We will meet weekly on Fridays 12:00-2:30 PM ET from September 23 - October 21, 2022.
This training is designed for a small group to learn as a leaders and connect with peers. The purpose of this program is develop your skills and capacity to advance racial equity in your work and practice. Our goal is that you will leave this program with conviction, skills and a courage to lead into a more just and equitable world.
In addition to the film, we will also use never before released clips from the American Neighbor journey to deepen our discussions during the five weeks. In addition, we will use 21/64 frameworks and tools, courageous conversations methodologies and practice your skills. We’ll deliver this in a way you are accustomed to at 21/64, with attention to content and process, tough on ideas, soft people, and support so you’ll be able to take these new skills and techniques and apply them as you facilitate difficult conversations in your organizations, networks and circles of influence.
This is a come-as-you-are encounter. You don’t need to have any specific point of view or position on racial justice and equity, just an openness to learning, sharing and engaging. Humility, courage and curiosity are a plus!
By joining us for this training, we hope you will grow as a leader and make change.
