How can we form new patterns of behaviour to heal our racial bias?
In this episode entitled Allies Of Joy In A Systemically Racist World, Amisha talks with Nova Reid, an anti-racism activist, TED speaker and author.
Nova uses her professional background in mental wellbeing to encourage mindset change working with organisations and individuals to improve systems of discrimination from the inside out.
Amisha and Nova unpack how racial and unconscious bias are formed across generations and cultures. Sharing powerful examples, together they reveal the traumatic impacts of white privilege and daily microaggressions that take form in our systemically racist systems. Nova reminds us that allyship is the progress we need to seek and that we can unlearn racism and prejudice. She believes that by sharing our vulnerabilities and by showing up with our curiosity, joy and solid boundaries, we have powerful tools to create true allyship, and the foundations for breaking, healing and transforming our cycles of behavior necessary for building an anti-racist future.
“To be an ally is really about recognising that you’re doing something that’s greater than you. It’s not about you. You’re doing something that will provide the opportunity for transformation, for healing and for a better world, for a more integrated world, and a world where we can have these conversations with one another when, harm has been caused.” Nova Reid
