Shakil Choudhury ~ Deep Diversity: A Compassionate, Scientific Approach to Achieving Racial Justice

Wednesday, October 12, 2022
6:30pm to 7:30pm

Live Webinar


In Deep Diversity, award-winning racial justice educator Shakil Choudhury explores the emotionally loaded topic of racism using a compassionate, scientific approach that everyone can easily understand—whether you are Black, Indigenous, a person of color (BIPOC), or white. Join him for this unforgettable dive into these themes.

With clear language and engaging stories that will appeal to readers of Brené Brown and Malcom Gladwell, Choudhury explains how and why well-intentioned people can perpetuate systems of oppression, often unconsciously. Using a trauma-informed
approach that removes shame or blame, he offers us the tools to recognize, take authentic responsibility, and enact deep change. Choudhury interweaves research into the brain and studies on human behavior with hard-won lessons from his career of helping organizations and CEOs create more inclusive environments. He models vulnerability and mistake-making, sharing examples of his own bias-missteps so readers are encouraged into their own racial justice journey without judgment.

Many are calling Deep Diversity a “breakthrough book” on race, meeting you where you’re at, regardless of your identity, class, ability, or belief system, and inviting you to come along on a journey of self-discovery, social awareness, and lifelong learning.

"Shakil is a rare jewel in the work of what it means to heal, repair, and take responsibility...This book is required reading for anyone interested in building a loving, just and diverse world."

Sensei Koshin Paley Ellison

"Racism continues to be a defining issue in our lives. Deep Diversity is a call to action that encourages us to look deeply at our patterns. If we uncover what we half-consciously feel and what influences our feelings, can we change our bias? Shakil Choudhury says we can and shows us how through this thoughtful, relevant offering."
