Do Your Relationships Make The World Better?
We are living in a time when we are forced to confront the various issues that separate us globally as well as communally, and often divide the family as well as our own consciousness. Businesses, entrepreneurs, organizations, systems, and individuals must make a dedicated, consistent, and drastic change in every facet of life. Together we will seek justice in our society and to begin we must first look within ourselves.
We Are The Only Consultancy Helping Individuals and Systems Build Equity Through Identity Navigation
We provide an educational process to enhance the lives of all people through our focus on building strong equitable interracial relationships.
The Good Peoples Group and our Center on Interracial Relationships work with businesses and individuals who seek to live with integrity in all aspects of their life and work with a focus on individual growth, social justice, and culture. Our clients want to do and be better, and they look to us to learn how to make that a reality.
We differ from “diversity and inclusion” consultants because of our emphasis on the importance of identity development and our work to expand the definition of interracial relationships as a way to address societal inequity. In order to create safe and equitable spaces, it is essential that we must first be present and connected with our own experience of the world.
Learn By Unlearning
What it takes is what we offer; a space to navigate our own identities and how those identities impact our relationships with others. The most pressing issue we face is the disconnection from ourselves and each other due to messages we have internalized about our identities. Our work is to unlearn these messages together to break the cycle of being complicit in our own oppression and the oppression of others.
To change the world, we must all learn how to create equitable relationships with others, but most importantly ourselves. In order to do this, it is not about accountability but rather an admission followed by practice.
Listen To Our
Post Racial Podcast
We think and talk about the word post-racial a lot. Post-racial or “colorblind” are frequently used to negate the way that this country’s history of race and power were so intimately intertwined and how it affects to this day our media, institutions, education system, norms…everything. Interracial relationships are often portrayed as the way out of our racialized history and that multiracial people will mean the end of white supremacy. 2042 (and some studies say even earlier) is touted as the year that our country will be “minority majority” when white non-Hispanic Americans will number less than half of the total population, a shift that demographers claim to be one of the “most intensive changes in a country’s racial and ethnic makeup in history.”
What challenges does this bring? What has this brought on already? How can we understand our identities and how they impact the lens through which we observe these changes? Our podcast makes a space for people to engage in this conversation as we move through it in real time.
