2022 Equity Conversations

This year’s conversation topics from Impact 100’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee range from a book discussion on the social and economic costs of racism, to a tour of Cincinnati’s Holocaust & Humanity Center, and a docuseries on “Race and Racism in Cincinnati.” All advocate for finding solidarity in our shared humanity. We invite you to participate in any or all conversations.
The Sum of Us by Heather McGhee
Economic and social policy expert Heather McGhee talked with people across the U.S. as she researched her book The Sum of Us. She disagrees with the “zero-sum” notion that progress for one group must come at the expense of another group. Her book concludes, in fact, that racism has a cost for everyone – not just people of color. It also offers insights on how all people can prosper together. Discussion presented in partnership with The Mercantile Library.
