Board Chair

Glenn Eric Singleton has devoted over thirty years to constructing racial equity worldwide and developing leaders to do the same. He is the author of Courageous Conversations About Race books (© 2006, © 2012, © 2016), creator of a protocol for sustained, deep interracial dialogue, and facilitator of Beyond Diversity™, the curriculum that has taught hundreds of thousands of people how to effectively talk about race and address racial disparities. As Founder and President of Pacific Educational Group, Inc.

In March 2016, Singleton launched the first Institute for Courageous Conversation – in Auckland, New Zealand. Singleton’s passion for equity flows to and through his civic life as well.

In 2017, he founded the Courageous Conversation Global Foundation and serves as chairperson of its board of directors.
