A Workshop About Race, For White People Only

More than two-thirds of company executives rate diversity and inclusion as an important issue, according to a 2017 survey by Deloitte. With an increase in interest for diversity and inclusion comes an increase in demand for racial equity and diversity workshops.

One of the popular trainings available is for white people only. Host Frank Stasio talks to David Campt, founder of the Ally Conversation Toolkit. Campt leads trainings for white people to prepare them to talk with other white people about race. He discusses why his trainings are geared towards these “white-on-white” conversations.

Stasio also talks to Alexa Broderick, a racial equity trainer and consultant. Broderick is also the founder and principal consultant for The Equity Paradigm, a diversity, equity, and inclusion firm. She analyzes the increased demand for her work and outlines what her workshops are like.

Amanda Magnus is the executive producer of Embodied, a weekly radio show and podcast about sex, relationships and health. She has also worked on other WUNC shows including Tested and CREEP.
Longtime NPR correspondent Frank Stasio was named permanent host of The State of Things in June 2006. A native of Buffalo, Frank has been in radio since the age of 19. He began his public radio career at WOI in Ames, Iowa, where he was a magazine show anchor and the station's News Director.
