The Problem + Solution
There are people who believe the Earth is flat simply because they do not see its curvature. If they changed their vantage point it would be obvious that it is, in fact, spherical. The same is true for racism. People do not believe that racism exists because they don't see it. They don't experience it. However, if they too change their vantage point, they would see the irrefutable fact that racism is prevalent today in many aspects of our society.
At Perception + Change, we work to alter your organization's vantage point and help your organization see the issues of race. We develop custom solutions that help your organization address the challenges and rewards of a more diverse and inclusive environment.
How We Bring Change
