Charis welcomes author Trudi Lebrón and Rebekah Borucki, president and founder of Row House Books, for a conversation about Lebrón's new book: The Antiracist Business Book: an Equity Centered Approach to Work, Wealth, and Leadership and how Row House Books is disruping the standard publishing model in the service of bringing more voices to the table.
Trudi Lebrón has spent the last decade working as a DEI and impact coach for businesses, nonprofits, and entrepreneurs. And what she learned over that time was that making a lasting change wasn't about fixing old systems; it was about building a new one. In this seminal work, Trudi lays out a plan for all businesses, leaders, entrepreneurs, and coaches to remix business, so that equity and impact become synonymous with profit and power.
Trudi provides lessons on understanding the long-term impacts of living in a hyper-capitalist, post-colonial world (aka White People Sh*t) and an examination of the way we have viewed wealth (whether as an obsession or an obscenity). She will compel business owners and leaders to rethink how they do business.
Trudi shares ways to create an antiracist business in a capitalist system. Unlike any other book on the market, The Antiracist Business Book takes an antiracist perspective. It applies it to how we are doing business—at the top, in the middle, and at the bottom, offering tools for advancement in how we work, earn, and lead. The wisdom inside this timely and essential book advocates for a new order of business that creates transparency, opportunity, and disruption. Businesses can no longer be successful while operating as tools of the status quo.
Row House’s mission is to create an equitable publishing model that represents the values and diversity of the authors and audience we embrace. Row House has created a new model, one that supports authors from diverse backgrounds—ethnic, racial, economic, orientation, and identification—from day one.
