Episode 223: Our Anti-Racism Action Plan
Welcome to this episode of Bucci Radio!
In this solo episode, I discuss my and my teams action plan for how we are going to move forward as anti-racist allies now and into the future. I’m looking forward to walking you through what we are doing internally to truly integrate these plans moving forward.
We walk through a transparent awareness of where I was at in my own process when everything began unfolding around the time of George Floyd’s death, where I’ve made mistakes in the past, my plan within my team structure, on my platform, within collaborations, and in my personal life.
