Transforming Dominant Culture is a live 3-part virtual program for white people who want to engage in racial healing and anti-racism with clarity and resilience.
In order to show up powerfully for social justice and equity, white folks need spaces to learn, grow, heal and process without creating harm or extra labor for people of color.
Doing this work in a courageous and empathetic environment allows us to show up for the greater work of social transformation from a place of increased capacity and true solidarity.
Our approach is threefold:
Explore white racial identity & its origins
Identify how our culture perpetuates inequality, exploitation & disconnection
Apply mindfulness-based skills to align our behavior & actions with our values & intentions.

What People Say About TDC
Emily Citrone Coaching
Transforming Dominant Culture is an in-depth, interactive program that takes a necessary look at how our current
culture upholds white supremacy. It provides a safe space to explore how these cultural traits often hold us back
Global Analyst, Columbia Sportswear
It is a holistic approach to understanding the personal and cultural dynamics that perpetuate racism, as well as the intersections with other oppressions. The process is revealing and gently guides one through the discomfort
to shed light on a path to overcoming the challenges. It is a journey for the self with a historical and
contemporary backbone offering a brighter vision for the future. A unique and rewarding experience!
I absolutely recommend this course to white folks with a working knowledge of antiracism and white supremacy culture.
We have inherited a legacy and culture founded in racial inequality.
When we recognize how we've internalized these, we can start interrupting harmful patterns and creating the world we want to live in.
What we offer:
Defuse your fears and triggers so you can show up centered & stable to difficult conversations.
Channel painful &/or blocking emotions (guilt, shame, self-doubt, fear, anxiety, overwhelm) into clarity, confidence & action.
Gain skills to connect with people through empathy & curiosity & build common ground.
Take action in ways that are resonant, energizing & sustainable.
