Ep #115: Becoming Anti-Racist and Building an Anti-Racist Business

Becoming Anti-Racist and Building an Anti-Racist Business

I’m sure you’re familiar with the Black Lives Matter movement, but you may or may not know that there is a difference between not being racist, and being anti-racist. It pains me to say, but becoming anti-racist was work that I just didn’t realize I needed to do. It absolutely is, and while I’m behind on this work, I am now aware and taking appropriate action to fix this. Just like I should be.

Usually, on my podcast, I position myself as an expert to teach you about my mistakes and successes. However, in terms of becoming anti-racist, I’m a student. This work will be difficult, uncomfortable, and there will be times where I fail, but the most important thing is that I will learn, move forward, and show that I am an ally. It is time to create an anti-racist business and community that is better for everybody.

This week, I’ll share a range of resources to help you begin a lifetime of taking action and becoming anti-racist, too. I’ll divulge what actions and initiatives I’ll be taking in both my personal life and my business, and how I’ll be holding myself accountable. It’s time to amplify voices and talents and help create change.

If you want to keep this conversation going, you have to join my free Design You Podcast community on Facebook. We have great conversations over there about the podcast episodes and our podcast guests are in there too! So head on over and I’ll see you there!
