Have you heard about the National Day of Racial Healing? Every year on the Tuesday after Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, individuals, organizations and communities around the country take time to talk about racism, racial equity and racial healing. According to the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, racial healing is a process that restores people and communities to wholeness, repairs damages caused by racism and transforms societal structures into ones that affirm the inherent value of all people.
Some questions to start these conversations include:
• Tell a story of a time you felt a deep sense of belonging, or exclusion, in the workplace.
• What is the origin of your name?
• How do you approach racial differences with your children?
