LOCAL>> 'Community at the Table' Speaker Series - Dr. john a. powell

A discussion about how we can build an inclusive society

Presented with Marin County Office of Equity and Dominican University of CA

john a. powell is the Director of the Othering & Belonging Institute, at University of California Berkeley.

The research institute brings together scholars, organizers, communicators, and policymakers to identify and eliminate barriers to an inclusive, just, and sustainable society, to create transformative change toward a more equitable nation.

powell has written extensively on … structural racism, racial justice, concentrated poverty, opportunity-based housing, voting rights, affirmative action in the United States, South Africa, and Brazil, racial & ethnic identity, and more.

powell spells his name in lowercase based on the idea that we should be “part of the universe, not over it, as capitals signify.”

He is the author of several books, including his most recent work, Racing to Justice: Transforming our Concepts of Self and Other to Build an Inclusive Society.
