Dear White Women

Apr 26, 2022

Our platform is called Dear White Women - and through it, we have this podcast, we have a book, we do talks - and a lot of our work, as biracial women, is to welcome more White women into the conversation.  As part of that work, we run into people saying that they’re tired of talking about race, worry about saying or doing the wrong thing, and are very concerned about cancel culture, which is why this next conversation is an incredibly important one for all of us to listen to.  


Dr. Dome is the author of the book, Let’s Talk About Race, and Other Hard things. And in it, she lays out a structure of Compassionate Dialogue, the idea to Recognize Interrupt Repair hurts and leans into the idea that every single one of us can use to talk more about not just race, but also all sorts of other hard things.  Given the divide we see in our country, the retrenching, the idea of staunch individualism trumping community, we need these tools.  Plus, in it, we learned how this structure is really a form of self-care, growth, and such a powerful way to approach so many things in our lives.  Listen in to learn more, as this conversation really builds on the one that we had with Andre Brown in last week’s episode.


What to listen for: 

  • The details of the Recognize-Interrupt-Repair protocol - and how the repair is so critical for us to maintain relationships and community, and yet is often the one most overlooked
  • How this protocol is good for our self-care overall
  • The four communication styles (functional, intuitive, personal, analytical) - which one are you!?- and how knowing this can play a role in how you communicate better
