Co-creating a better future…
With the George Floyd and Black Lives Matter episodes in mind, throughout this conversation, both Pangea Challenge’s Co-founder Kimberly King and Mrs. Steinwender reflect on ways to co-create a society that could be more just and more compassionate for every one, not only in the US, but all over the World as well.
They speak of their different experiences and understanding of racial discrimination. They talk about how much light has been shed on the word racism in 2020 and how important it is to truly listen and reflect, and to open the space for greater clarity and understanding, beginning with ourselves.
