Want to figure out how to support the movement for Black lives? Start by understanding your own privilege and power. White privilege is a thing, but not the only thing: we all have power and privilege. Once you understand your privilege, you can start to change the way Black people are valued and treated in America. The power you have can end the systemic and institutional racism Black people experience daily.
This conversation is designed for you and your community to reflect on how you use and benefit from privilege. This conversation may at times be uncomfortable. We encourage you to be open, and embrace the discomfort. This is the first of a series of Anti-Racism templates designed by Dr. Akilah Cadet, Educator and Founder Change Cadet.
Dr. Akilah Cadet is the Founder of Change Cadet consulting firm, which offers a broad array of diversity services including executive coaching, strategy, crisis rebuilding, and facilitation. Cadet is a French term that means soldier (and happens to be Akilah's last name). As it's often an uphill battle for women, people of color, and marginalized communities to achieve success in the workplace, Change Cadet prepares soldiers of change to overcome these continuous battles to be their best selves. She literally has all the degrees, lives in Oakland, has a rare heart condition, and is a proud Beyoncé advocate.
