“My race-relations sessions take an anti-racist approach. An anti-racist approach includes: acknowledging and challenging the historic and current power differentials between people of color and white people, addressing the patterns that develop due to the dynamics of internalized racism and internalized dominance, building processes and norms that are designed to be vigilant about these patterns. I make sure to: (1) set a constructive climate for learning through role-modeling and use of self, (2) take into account the groups’ diversity and how that diversity impacts the group’s dynamics, (3) balance the intellectual with the emotional components of learning, and (4) make learning resources available. In addition to content knowledge, my expertise is in presenting information that is difficult or emotionally charged clearly and accessibly. My primary goal is always to deepen skills and relationships among team members and between social groups.” (https://robindiangelo.com/)
