Antiracist Approaches for Shaping Theoretical and Practice Paradigms

Kenneth V. Hardy

From the article introduction:

"Regardless of the setting or circumstance, addressing intense interpersonal racial interactions remains a monumental endeavor. Whether these interactions are between colleagues, family members, or estranged racial groups hopelessly divided and unable to find common ground, progressive conversations involving race remain a major challenge. This chapter will provide a framework for conducting progressive conversations about race within the workplace and beyond. Establishing antiracist approaches for facilitating effective engagement around the difficult issues of race is one of the key elements in transforming health and human services systems. Demonstrating the willingness and skill to effectively navigate conversations about race that circumvent the usual paths of polarization and rapid escalation are central to the process of transforming health and human services systems."
