Latanya Langley

For those not educated on pronouns, it would be great to explain
Reham Fared (she/her/hers)
16:09
Latanya: The purpose of adding pronouns is to show our understanding that gender identity and expression is on a spectrum. Even for individuals whose gender identity aligns with the sex they were assigned at birth, it helps foster a culture of belonging and to demonstrate allyship to the transgender members of the LGBTQ+ community.

Hi everyone,
Becca Barnett (she, her, hers)
19:20
"Color doesn't matter" to always saying "POC" to saying Black when I mean Black was a person evolution starting in HS. Part of my active unlearning.
Robynne Sherrill
19:24
I love color aware vs color blind
JD (he/him)

JD (he/him)
23:01
Thank you for explaining false equivalency. Sometimes nonblack POC see it as a way to connect and miss the undermining way it can come across.
Angela Sternburgh (she/her)
23:56
I also had to join a little late today, but so happy to be here today and to learn from this great community.
Bernadette Smith
23:59
This reminds me of the Brene’ Brown bit on empathy, and that great YouTube video. Thanks for sharing your stories, Mita.
Sameena Kluck (she/her)
24:06
Yes I think people think it’s showing empathy but I think it can show a lack of understanding and minimizing someone’s experience. I like what Mita just said—your only job is to show up and listen-educate yourself and honor that person’s truth.

Thanks for sharing your story, Mita

Thanks for sharing Bernadette
Lila Bauman she/hers
24:52
As a white person I've had to attend to the line between owning my own privilege/complicity as an ally and giving off a signal of "white guilt" that expects to be rescued. Learning to just LISTEN is indeed a powerful skill that must be learned.
Chris Pope (he/him)
25:40
so difficult for us white folks because we have been socialized, incorrectly, to think its our job to lead and have answers, not to be listeners
Deb Williams
26:11
I love that....our jobs starts at the kitchen table!
Ed Demeritt (he/him/his)
26:19
Learning to be comfortable being uncomfortable
Shavondalyn Givens (she, her, hers)
27:13
That's awesome Mita - that you had her work with your leaders 3 years ago. Definitely a trailblazer! And know no one can get on her calendar
Erika McMullen
27:19
@Chris Pope I believe it is difficult for many people, not just White individuals, because it requires us to be uncomfortable and hold space for people
Cindi Gilliland (she/her)
28:44
We have been socialized to appear powerful and extraverted and self-assured, not vulnerable and curious
Chris Pope (he/him)
31:01
@Cindi exactly!
JD (he/him)
32:13
Experiencing and explaining trauma is exhausting.. especially since I see many black friends doing it at work AND home. Folks are working double time in this movement.
Robynne Sherrill (she/her)
32:28
Reposting my information because my internet isn’t loyal today lol. Robynne Sherrill | drsherrill65@gmail.com | LinkedIn.com/in/drsherrill | www.discussionsmatter.com
Amanda KYC (she/her)
32:29
I have been thinking about this A LOT, as the white educator, when people ask for training workshops that focus on racial justice and POC, whether I am supposed to step aside and ask my supervisors (both black women) to provide that expertise, or be the ally who presents the workshop. Is it more inappropriate to ask them to continue to exhaust themselves, or to attempt to tell a story that's not mine?
iPhone Marcella
32:38
+1 JD
Sameena Kluck (she/her)
32:47
I heartily agree with Mita-I watched my boyfriend on a work zoom today having to watch the video of the birdwatcher in Central Park having the cops called on him. Everyone on the call knew about the incident-why make black people suffer watching that again? Just to frame the discussion up-it’s not necessary to re-expose people to that.
Sharon Lovelady-Hall
32:47
How do you address the expectation that black employees should let the organization know how to they think the organization should address racism and what is happening today
iPhone Marcella
34:05
@Amanda what about inviting several colleagues to join you? you can only speak to your own experience
Chris Pope (he/him)
35:17
@Amanda is it possible to have the conversation the exact way you framed it above and then listen to what they are willing to take on or sit out?
Amanda KYC (she/her)
35:31
Great idea @Marcella. I haven't found that as an option though, with such a tiny organization, where everyone has so much on their plate. I am a Department of One :)
Sameena Kluck (she/her)
36:20
@Amanda-I think you lay it out to your colleagues exactly as you have here-I would welcome your input but don’t want to burden you with feeling like it is your job to educate the rest of us. Would you like to participate and how?
Lila Bauman she/hers
36:59
I've shared stories of my own best-intentions-colossal-fails around race with my students and I find that my white students cannot just hear my story in terms of how I hurt a person of color. They rush in to rescue ME and justify my actions rather than HEAR how the encounter affected the person of color I clashed with. This is a challenge in my own storytelling when I'm trying to model transparency for other white folks. It's a dynamic of unconsciously collaborating to preserve white privilege, and it takes time to get past that. You're right that Robin DiAngelo has provided great models for conversations among white people as they educate themselves.
Twazanga Mugala
37:02
Can’t you ask them which one they want to do? That’s even a step forward no?
Angela Sternburgh (she/her)
37:33
I love the comment there are no experts anymore, I just have areas of expertise.
iPhone Marcella
37:39
@Lila thanks for sharing this
Caitlin O'Donnell (she/hers)
38:00
“how are you doing personally?” —— so important!
Shavondalyn Givens (she, her, hers)
39:31
Question - our organization is looking for ally training right now. Does anyone have recommendations or trainers that are good on this topic?
iPhone Marcella
39:43
The model used for Intergroup Dialogues at the University of Michigan was to always have 2 co facilitators - one is an ally - think this is a great model
Robynne Sherrill (she/her)
41:00
Great model, Marcella! I was just asked to “lead” a conversation and been trying to figure out how to position the response…
Katie Livornese (She/Her/Hers)
41:04
Shavondalyn - JBC has a really powerful allyship workshop that we’ve been delivering virtually!
Quinn Finnigan
41:16
Question: I’m an executive recruiter in Seattle, which is not a highly diverse region. Inherently I am a service provider to my clients – I find them what/who they need. Some companies are embracing D&I, many are not. How can I begin to sensitively insert D&I into this field?
Amanda KYC (she/her)
41:23
I love the idea of 2 co-facilitators with one as an ally. Hopefully as my organization grows (we are now 9 FT staff, up from 6!) we'll have the option of hiring additional educators. Thanks!
Alex Krantzler (she/they)
41:27
I was trained in Intergroup Dialogue and it is so incredibly powerful
Latanya Langley
41:36
Thank you
Deborah Ashton
42:07
It is very important to have both. Because Black people is one if the few groups where a non-member of the group feels comfortable being an expert and Black people can be labeled as being too involved to be objective. While other groups can forcefully own their story and still be seen as objective.
Ed Demeritt (he/him/his)
42:21
@Marcella - that's something we're working on to have co-facilitators for our class on diversity, inclusion, and a respectful workplace
Alex Krantzler (she/they)
42:45
I think the most powerful thing people can learn is their own agency in driving change
Deborah Ashton
43:00
Agree. Inclusion is own by everyone.
Valerie Spain (she, hers)
43:07
Agreed - allies step up and allies self educate-
JD (he/him)
43:23
I think it’s great to state and repeat and repeat that this is all hands on deck and always should be. The D&I team is there to facilitate.
Cindi Gilliland (she/her)
43:37
We must all lead change and at the same time not take power from POC when trying to be an ally
Lila Bauman she/hers
44:26
Great question. There is much higher turnover among low-status workers of color in many industries; It is so much more costly for them to speak up against workplace problems than for other workers. Of course they are not the ones who must be responsible for driving change. We waste a lot of great talent when top leaders and white managers do not take the initiative themselves to self-examine and self-audit on behalf of their companies.
iPhone Marcella
44:34
Awesome, I love the co facilitator model!
iPhone Marcella
44:59
Maybe call them in versus call them out?
Caitlin O'Donnell (she/hers)
45:09
good points, Lila.
Valerie Spain (she, hers)
45:10
Exactly - you’ll never be comfortable - discomfort isn’t a reason to not step up, speak, act etc.
Robynne Sherrill (she/her)
45:20
Yes, Marcella - love that
Alex Krantzler (she/they)
45:40
I was at a talk yesterday where one of the panelists, David Johns, spoke about transitioning the narrative from “ally” to “accomplice.” Ally implies an ideological state of passive being and accomplice is actively working alongside a community toward a common goal.
Chris Pope (he/him)
46:09
@Alex I love that
Twazanga Mugala
46:16
It boils down to delayed versus instant gratification. We feel uncomfortable and the instant reaction is to stop that feeling and move away from it. If we’re patient and chose to sit in that uncomfort and listen and talk it through, it will result in growth. Thank you @Mita
Quinn Finnigan
46:19
@Alex that's a great mind shift
Cindi Gilliland (she/her)
46:26
@Alex, but doesn't "accomplice" usually mean a sidekick or helper to a crime?
Robynne Sherrill (she/her)
46:40
We have to give a lot of grace in this season
iPhone
46:47
Audio seems to be going on and off...maybe it’s just at my end.
Sherylle Bates
46:50
Love “Get comfortable with being uncomfortable.” Diversity is uncomfortable work. That’s how you know you are on the right track.
JD (he/him)
46:52
Adults need to remember bystander v. upstander.
Quinn Finnigan
48:36
I can see toggling between both or actually sitting in both simultaneously
Lila Bauman she/hers
48:46
Until white allies and business leaders can fully OWN their privilege without defensiveness, they cannot use that privilege in "accomplice-like" positive ways.
iPhone Marcella
49:03
YES!!! everyday all day
Sharon Lovelady-Hall
49:40
Yes Lila!!
iPhone Marcella
49:41
I think it’s easier to become an ally when you have a direct connection to the group you wish to become an ally to
Quinn Finnigan
49:46
GREAT point about legacy!
Lila Bauman she/hers
49:47
@Mita, thank you for reminding us to take time to connect personally! Important not to put leaders in a box.
Leena Sahu
49:51
We tried Ethos, Pathos and Logos to convince the top management to be start working on D&I. It really worked out.
Quinn Finnigan
50:36
@Leena, can you expand on that?
iPhone Marcella
51:07
“Everyday all day” was a reference to becoming an ally (the men who care about women bc they have daughters example)
Alex Krantzler (she/they)
51:17
@Cindi - it does; but in this context, accomplices are “partners in crime” - working alongside folks to combat racial injustice. The active stance is where the intentionality of the language sits.
Leena Sahu
51:30
@Quinn Ethos is about establishing your authority to speak on the subject, logos is your logical argument for your point and pathos is your attempt to sway an audience emotionally.
Alex Krantzler (she/they)
51:39
@Lila - absolutely.
Quinn Finnigan
51:55
@Leena thank you
Parool Mehta (she/her)
52:33
Must excuse myself early. Thank you for this conversation.
Cindi Gilliland (she/her)
52:36
@Alex, thank you! I still worry that the unconscious association between POC and crime woud be activated by this term.
Shavondalyn Givens (she, her, hers)
52:56
Mita - please tell us more about your Men as Allies Group
Chris Pope (he/him)
53:08
The Better Man conference is phe-nom-en-al
Jane Myneni (she/her/hers)
53:24
I'm late to today's call and had to miss other recent calls, but could use some help: We're in a conservative community and are hearing concerns from employees (including leaders) about our newly vocal support of black lives matter and addressing racial injustice. (e.g., Worry about employees with family members in law enforcement, people seeing black lives matter as a political statement.) Is anyone else experiencing this? How are you handling it? (Happy to discuss offline, too.)
Michael Streffery
55:55
How are you connecting with other HR focuses like wellness programs? I am still seeing a lack of shapes and sizes in diversity related marketing efforts.
Patricia Gestoso (she/her)
56:40
Hi All,I’m head of customer service and support operations for a scientific and engineering software company. I’m based in Manchester, UK.I’m member of our Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) Council and I’ve founded the first regional employee group to foster gender equity at the workplace. I have my own website on D&I in tech. (patriciagestoso.com).Let’s connect (https://www.linkedin.com/in/patriciagestoso/)

It's an honor to be part of these calls with all of you. Would enjoy connecting: https://www.linkedin.com/in/marykmorgan/
JD (he/him)
56:55
To be on the side of human rights is not a political statement. It’s voicing your morals.
Di Ciruolo (she/her)
57:35
Ben and Jerry’s had an AWESOME statement!
Robynne Sherrill (she/her)
57:41
Some get hung up on the factual statement that Black lives matter, the organization, Black Lives Matter and the movement, Black Lives Matter.
Ed Demeritt (he/him/his)
57:59
@Robynne - yes, I've seen that here, as well
Lisa Kohn (she/her)

Deb Williams
58:16
Love these conversations. Would love to connect. https://www.linkedin.com/in/deb-williams8998/
Alyssa Stein (she/her)
58:51
The balance I’m working with my company on is using language that is very clear about racial injustice/police brutality but not necessarily pushing for language that the current movements are using, like Black Lives Matter. The language my company used initially was just “brutality” without using “police brutality” and that didn’t sit right with me. I think it’s about being clear with the language used in a way that is specific but doesn’t sound “political.”
Sharon Lovelady-Hall
58:55
Hofstra University has an informative YouTube video, "Black Lives Matter: Understanding the Movement and the Protest"
JD (he/him)
59:08
How does a company like Ben and Jerrys respond to those who bring up how they treated migrant workers in the past? It’s something people have brought up as missing from their statement.
Alyssa Stein (she/her)
59:25
My company is using language around Black Lives Matter as we share resources but in official company posts and branding we’re not using that language right now. But we are talking about black lives. I think that’s the balance I’m getting at.
Robynne Sherrill (she/her)
