“Cracking The Codes”  Part 2 The System of Racial Inequity

"Cracking The Codes"The System of Racial Inequity, a film by Shakti Butler                        Film and discussion will be facilitated by Faye Richardson-Green

Faye Richardson-Green is a long-time diversity and inclusion leader. With more than twenty-five years of broad community leadership experience, she has been instrumental in a wide range of programs, events, and strategies—influencing the strategic direction of numerous organizations in roles as diverse as co-founder, committee chair, facilitator, and board trustee. Within Steelcase, Faye has worked tirelessly to create an organizational culture that is equitable, diverse, and inclusive. She won the Diversity Visionary Award from the Grand Rapids Chamber of Commerce in 2013. 

This film reveals a self-perpetuating system of inequity in which internal factors play out in external structures: institutions, policy, and law. The film works to disentangle internal beliefs, as it builds to recognize and address the external drivers of inequity. 

Part 1 was presented in November of 2013.  Part 2 is a continuation, but a stand alone workshop.  Attendance at Part 1 is not a requirement of attendance at Part 2.  We welcome all.
