REALTalk: A Few Resources on Race & Equity

September 9, 2016

Earlier this year, we issued a statement in response to the deaths of Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, and the five officers in Dallas: Brent Thompson, Patrick Zamarripa, Michael Krol, Lorne Ahrens, and Michael J. Smith. We also asked the alums community what resources you are using, or in need of, to bring Americans together to strengthen our communities. This work is important to our core mission and also closely tied to Alums’ new Talent and Equity Initiative. We want to make sure we are “getting things done” by being inclusive in our work.

We want to thank the many of you who shared resources and the ideas you have about how we can better support alumni in leading our communities towards unity, equity, and opportunity.

Here, we share some of the resources you suggested.  In the coming months, we’ll continue to share additional resources in our newsletter, on our blog and on FaceBook, Twitter and LinkedIn. We invite you to look for the #REALTalk hashtag (REALTalk stands for Race, Equity, Alums as Leaders) and continue to share and comment on our posts.  You can also submit a blog about your experiences and perspectives.

Here are a few of the suggested resources from the Alums network related to race, equity, and inclusion:

Thank you so much for sharing these TED talks, articles, podcasts, news forums, blogs, books, and tool-kits! We greatly appreciate it and look forward to engaging more with all of you about how together we can build a safer, stronger and more equitable communities.
