About the Authors:
We are educators, coaches, and organization development practitioners who specialize in diversity-inclusion culture change and leadership development. Much of our life’s work has been devoted to creating bridges across race.We hunger for ways to bridge across race difference: to relate more effectively, dialogue more constructively, and deal with racism systemically. Because you are interested in this book suggests that you are concerned with changing the cultural status quo and forming a more perfect union.
