“Dismantling racism is not as complicated as we make it. If we know our history and we are willing to walk through our fear, and let it go, we will be able to take action and make authentic decisions to speak out and make lasting change.” - Melissa Bird PhD FRSA

Dr. Bird, and Bay Area Co-Ambassador Jaylena D. Lomenech FRSA, have combined their decades of experience to craft a hybrid presentation/workshop to unpack how RSA US Fellows and staff can deliver on our organizational commitment to address intractable racism. DEI strategist, and assistant professor of Communication at Howard Community College (Md.), Crystal L. Walker will help unpack our four centuries of history, before we turn to examples of disruption, culminating in how inclusive representation can be achieved.

Please view the RSA US “Statement on Intractable Racism”, and the “Seven Structural Pathways to Racial Equity” - as outlined by RSA US Director Alexa Clay - to understand why we believe this work is so critical.
