WHAT WE DO

The Global Foundation was founded to offer Courageous Conversation’s 25-year history of racial equity workshops and development to the world community. Through strategic philanthropy, the Global Foundation models how coordinated, intentional action undertaken by a set of stakeholders is central to creating collective impact to achieve racial healing.

The Global Foundation seeks opportunities to leverage investments to unite people of all races to engage in the most effective precipitant of social change: authentic, sustained and compelling intra- and interracial dialogue to eradicate racism.

The Global Foundation nurtures public/private partnerships to attract revenue streams, aggregate resources, and catalyze change for racially equitable collective impact.

To achieve racial equity, it is the vision of the Global Foundation to:

Revitalize Communities
Develop Community Leaders
Develop Community Leaders
Support Higher Education and International Study

OUR PROGRAMMING

Courageous Conversation Global Foundation will lead and develop programming in the following key areas:

Community-based Racial Healing Initiatives

After anti-semitic and racist epithets were found in a high school restroom in a suburban Texas school district, Courageous Conversations™ led a workshop providing school personnel, parents, students and community members with the tools to examine the root causes of the racial animus and begin healing.

OUR WORK

Courageous Conversation is an award-winning protocol for effectively engaging, sustaining and deepening interracial dialogue developed by Glenn E, Singleton. This dialogic approach provides a set of tools or a Protocol designed to accommodate the experience with race for people of all races. The Protocol is embedded in a systemic Framework that guides analysis and thinking through which participants are supported to move from theory to practice (Singleton, 2015).

For nearly 25 years, Courageous Conversation has expanded from its original focus on racial equity transformation in PreK-12 education in the United States, to a broader scope that now addresses race in higher education, corporations, nonprofits, and government in Canada, New Zealand, and Australia.

The Courageous Conversation Global Foundation works to leverage that experience to:

Build interracial networks of people and broaden access to Courageous Conversation through training organizations and stakeholder groups.

Convene and develop cross-sector partnerships to foster strategic systemic alignment, resource development, collaborative self-determination, and networking.

Consult and coach leadership in schools, business, government, and community organizations in systemic racial equity transformation.

Identify, corroborate, publish and widely disseminate racial equity best practices and action research.
