It’s time to confront the barriers to having healthy & constructive conversations about race. Racial reconciliation won’t happen on its own!
If you’ve ever felt marginalized just by being born of a certain melanin, you are not alone.
If you’ve ever yearned to see violence and racial injustice end, but don’t know where to start, you are not alone.
We’re talking about what it will take to bring people together, why it’s important, and what it means for you.
By doing this, you’ll help the podcast spread on iTunes and help empower more ambitious women.
Personal Growth Strategist, Monique Melton wants YOU to have a HEART that is healed, healthy, & connected. And she’s here to help us get past shame in regards to racial reconciliation.
In this episode, we’ll learn:
- How to ask yourself the hard “heart” questions
- How to ask others about their experiences
- The cost to not doing this work
- And, the benefits for stretching just a LITTLE outside your comfort zone
My hope is that you will feel empowered to apply these tools, and find it easier to embrace diversity in
- Your personal life
- Your inner circle of friends
- Your business, work, or career

QUOTES FROM THIS EPISODE
“Diversity is not comfortable. We have to be intentional. We have to recognize, ‘It’s not about my comfort, it’s about my growth’. I don’t ever want to be so concerned with my comfort that I remain the same person that I was yesterday. I want to continue to grow and be a better person.”
“The only way I know different things about different people with different life experiences than me, is because I spend time talking to them.”
“It really is about embracing ALL the amazing, beautiful different types of people that God has created on this earth. They weren’t to be ostracized, & to be marginalized, & oppressed. It’s to be enjoyed! There’s so much richness that comes from the different backgrounds and the cultures of others.”
