Our support extends to:
Since 2016, Conversation Starters has been elevating equity as a critical issue for people and communities. To actualize this work, we have created webinars, articles, convenings, and certification programs. Conversation Starters believes that all oppressed groups and individuals should benefit from our work, as we participate in and benefit from a capitalist system.
While our work includes all forms of difference and oppression, we center race. Research and lived experience has proven that while race is not the only factor contributing to the diminished capacity of all people, particularly Black, Indigenous, poor and immigrant peoples, it is the factor which so many people of power and authority fail to effectively recognize, understand and/or address.
Therefore, Conversation Starters’ equity work is not race-exclusive, but it is race-explicit.
