11: Angele Davenport – Grounding your Work in Racial and Social Justice

Many foundations and nonprofits aspire to address racial and social equity issues but few are able to navigate this complex challenge gracefully. Sometimes it gets so fraught that organizations are tempted to put band-aid (not really) solutions in place or they get so scared that they pull back from genuinely engaging in the healing and transformation work that is required to do this well. We speak from experience and we know this work is really hard. 

Today’s guest, Angele Davenport, is an equity consultant based in Denver, who we met at the Skid Row School.  In this episode, Becky and Angele talk about a real-life example that took place at a recent Skid Row School and Angeles shares her perspective on what wisdom can be learned even when it’s hard. 

Consider this episode some private consulting for you and your organization to help yourself and your community in approaching race and social justice from “your lane.”
