Long before the overdue racial reckoning Americans and others across the world are now experiencing, people have been victimized by acts of hate and systemic oppression in many contexts. However, we believe that humanity is better. We remain inspired by the difficult conversations that colleagues and families are having in workplaces, in religious organizations, and in homes.
Konesens Development offers a series of workshops on racial equity, implicit bias, social inclusion, cultural competency, systems of oppression, and shared humanity. We believe that most people want to be better, and in response we provide resources and tools to further understanding and inclusion domestically and globally.

"Very good presentation & discussion. It felt like a safe space."
"Excellent; and an engaged group. It was the perfect balance between presentation of materials and group participation."
The above diagram illustrates how hate, extremism and radicalization, can form and exist in the interstices of bias and perceived threat. Their size appears small in comparison to the broader feelings and expressions of bias and perceived threat; yet protected and difficult to differentiate. However, when bias is replaced by understanding and the perceived threat is replaced by acceptance, hate, extremism and radicalization are fully exposed. Of course, the strategy regarding how to reduce bias and the perception of threat are context specific.
As a shared humanity, we must focus on eradicating the biases and perceived threats. The team at Konesens Development has expertise developing and implementing comprehensive responses to reduce biases and perceived threats and increase understanding and acceptance.
