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.
