Season 1, Episode 3
On this episode, we welcome Annie McKay.
As Principal Consultant at Adaptive Equity Solutions, Annie advises organizations and national policy networks on centering equity and inclusion in their organizational practices as they work to strengthen their commitment to racial justice.
Before becoming an organizational consultant, Annie served as the President and CEO of Kansas Action for Children (KAC), the executive director of the Kansas Center for Economic Growth and a former Rockwood Leadership Fellow, Sunflower Foundation Advocacy Fellow, and was appointed to the Kansas Children’s Cabinet and the Governor’s Education Council.
Throughout our conversation, Annie will touch on many turning points in approaching their work, and how not even racial equity, but just racial awareness can be a struggle for both individuals and organizations.
We’ll talk about breaking through or moving beyond the shame and guilt that this can surface, and instead working toward a place of productive and supportive action.
