The World Needs Black Leadership
How to create a world where Black leadership is valued and Black voices heard?
This seminar will focus especially on how to bring in Processwork concepts when working with clients who are not familiar or even resistant to Processwork interventions.
The world needs black leadership, and yet we are so antiblack. Not just white people but all of us, including black people, are antiblack. White supremacy is so pervasive. Much of our world’s problems and all of us are burdened by white supremacist culture. How can we save our planet if we are unable to move beyond our love of whiteness? 59% of the world’s population is Asian; 30% of the world’s people are African, only 7-8% of the World’s population is white. Why is much of the world silent about race, and yet antiblackness is so pervasive? Our collective struggle is about ending racial capitalism, yet we are blinded by whiteness.
Why must we transform, and how can we? And can we change fast enough for our planet and all of us to survive?

Born into a Black, Chinese, Mexican, Irish, & Native American family, Diane grew up as a member of Cleveland’s Black community and attended a segregated school system.

Diane incorporates energy and healing frameworks to create transformative change. Her facilitative scope includes work with cities, towns, schools, community organizations, and large-scale engagement in shifting corporate culture.

She founded Let’s Talk About Race, an award-winning multimedia show that she co-hosted with Pharaoh Saunders in 2017. Since then, they have invited hundreds of people from all walks of life into conversations about race and racism through the radio show, panel discussions, and community symposiums.

A second retreat on September 26, 2020, Sitting in the Fire II: Racial Justice Conciliation Circles, introduced the idea of asking all people, Black, Asian and white, to look inside and process their antiblackness. Toward empowering black leadership for our global initiatives.
