Our Mission

We believe that courageous conversations about race have the power to change things in the world that prevent governments, organizations and people from achieving their best outcomes.

In the nearly 30 years we have been around, the world has made a lot of progress when it comes to achieving racial equality. But it’s not a linear process. It’s two steps forward, one step back.

We resist the change because it’s uncomfortable—ultimately, leaving us all stuck.

Our services are designed to help you get unstuck and begin the right conversations to realize change in your organization, community or city.

Services Overview

Training

COURAGEOUS CONVERSATION® is our award-winning protocol for effectively engaging, sustaining and deepening interracial dialogue.

Through our Framework for Systemic Racial Equity Transformation, we help individuals and organizations address persistent racial disparities intentionally, explicitly, and comprehensively. All sessions are moderated by our team of trained Equity Transformation Specialists.

Coaching

A high-touch outreach model designed for dynamic leaders who seek to improve their understanding of issues or race and build a skill-set in interracial dialogue.

If you are trying to navigate through a current, internal issue or concern within your organization, we serve as your partner to help you identify standards for equitable solutions as well as existing areas of interrogation that you may not have considered.

Consultation

One-on-one guidance for organizations looking to navigate an internal or public issue pertaining to race.

Consultation work provides us the opportunity to navigate any predictable and emerging resistance alongside you, while redesigning practices and policies to create a more racially equitable, diverse and inclusive space for your company or organization.

“As an influential, global advertising agency, we were and are excellent at solving complex brand problems for Fortune 500 clients. Yet, we were not good at solving our own issue, which was lack of diversity in our people, our culture and the work we put out into the world. The team at Courageous Conversation drove us toward action at all points and forced us to dissect our inaction.”

Sarah Thompson
Global CEO, Droga5

“The work Glenn is doing through Courageous Conversation About Race will stir you intellectually and move your personal beliefs beyond what you knew possible. This is the first approach I’ve seen that moves everyone along on their journey based on where they are personally first.”
