Brass Tacks: Telling The Truth About Equity

With Kerrien Suarez, Executive Director of Equity in the Center.

Question: What do we say when we’re asked “What does equity have to do with my mission?” Put differently, how do we respond to the following comment? “Well, I don’t think equity is a part of our organizational mission.”

An answer: Well, it takes practice. You’ve got to be comfortable telling the truth to yourself before you can invite others to make their own discoveries. “The goal is to help people learn and catalyze actions so they can transform their culture to center equity.”
