Race Matters

The Herrington Group Race Matters Training moves participants to consider that race does not biologically exist. However, how we identify with race in the US is extremely powerful; it influences our experiences and shapes our lives. Race can predict where we live, where we work, how well we do in school, how long we will live and the outcomes we have in social, corporate, and government systems.

While individual choices and racist ideas are damaging, racist policies have a much wider negative impact by threatening the commitment of equity and fairness for all in the healthcare, education, economic, criminal justice, and childcare protective services systems and others. To create an equal society, we must commit to making unbiased choices and embrace equity in all aspects of our lives.

Participants in Race Matters Training gain insight on race and helps leaders of all levels internalize the reality that we live in a racially structured society with racist systems and policies and understanding that helps provide focus on developing foundational, sustainable solutions for the future. This unique leadership training incorporates interactivity and exercises that lead to resounding change and more inclusive leaders.


Core Coaching Competencies We Will Learn:

Creating awareness for coaches on race and its impact on systems and policies

Creating common language on race and racism

Developing new perspectives on racism, racial structures and racial inequity to help inspire focus and change
