Pacific Educational Group is a consulting firm committed to forging racial equity. Over its 25-year history, its mission has expanded from its original focus on transforming PreK-12 education and the United States. A broader scope of work now addresses race in higher education, corporations, non-profits, and law enforcement in Canada, New Zealand, and Australia, as well.
We believe systemic racism is the most devastating factor contributing to the diminished capacity of all people, and especially people of color and indigenous people, to achieve at the highest levels. It fractures our communities and erodes the support and nourishment we would otherwise receive from them. We cannot hope to eliminate the racially predictable outcomes of our lives unless we first discuss race and racism in a way that is earnest, honest, and sustainable.
To that end, we have developed Courageous Conversation™, a process to understand and discuss race explicitly. Hundreds of thousands of people have learned The Courageous Conversation About Race Protocol ™ from Pacific Educational Group’s diverse and dynamic staff. These representatives of various professions, regions, and life experiences work together to design curriculum, facilitate seminars, and coach leaders to use Courageous Conversation ™ in their personal and professional lives.
