DR. MEL'S MESSAGE - From my novels to my other projects, no telling what you will read. This is the only place you will get to read about how I developed a screenplay into a novel and what is the driving force. I will talk about many things from films to books to acting to producing. It really will depend on where my mind takes me. I hope you will join me on this journey.
The whole world is grappling with the issue of race and inequity. From communities to countries, we struggle to answer the important questions about language, attitude, and behavior as it relates to our interactions with people outside our race. In the organizational structure, however, the ways in which we answer those questions have a profound impact on organizational culture and individual success.
Grace Equity is a model that seeks to elevate our national dialogue about race. It calls on organizations, activists, leaders, and race equity practitioners everywhere to reimagine their approach to and perspectives of race, moving us away from distancing paradigms of fear, anger, and absolutism toward healing through communication, humility, and grace. In this book.
How leaders can center grace and lead with power and freedom
How to be authentic as a leader, and in relationships
The insidious nature of quiet racism and to spot it
How to resolve conflict through restorative grace
How to bring teams together for the important work of grace equity
And so much more. Through unique concepts and conversational tone, Dr. Majors helps organizations shift toward vulnerable and courageous conversations about racism and oppression, through the lens of grace.
