Workshop Description

This FREE presentation will focus on the present and historical barriers to equity in western society. Slavery and segregation were not the products of determined individual actors. Systems of profit and informal rewards created institutions dedicated to injustice around the world. These systems have changed in superficial ways over the last fifty years. How can today’s leaders accomplish more, despite these longstanding traditions?
