Conversations from the Edge (2): It Begins with the Leaders

Establishing and sustaining an equity agenda and culture begins with a commitment from the organization’s leaders. Although the impetus for the work may stem from an event or some other call to action, the major responsibility rests with leadership. This episode (the second of six) dives into how leaders are called upon to do their own work while modeling and supporting others. How do you cut through systems of oppression to avoid harm and injury? Carmen Marshall talks with Paul Sevett, incoming ADTA president about moving through a process of vulnerability and taking risks to discover what’s possible.
