Creating a World That Works for All



Here is a link to a 19-minute segment from our recent successful webinar, a part of the “Solutions Beyond Diversity” series. SBD Webinar: “A Different Approach to Diversity”:

In this segment, I talk about something that is fundamentally true: that flawed thinking yields flawed theories and flawed practices. Trying to solve a problem with the wrong tool (using a saw to screw in a bolt) yields unsatisfying results. Clearer, appropriate thinking yields clearer and more authentic communication.
If you find this short video helpful, please consider taking the 6-part online course:
