When we're on the receiving end of pain-stimulating assumptions, a microaggression, or prejudice --when we're reactive and resultingly have self doubt, guilt or shame in ourselves-- is it possible to be intensely authentic while holding care for everyone in the situation?

In part two, of this two-part transcript, clinical psychologist and organizational consultant, Roxy Manning, Ph.D., offers a way we can help people from marginalized groups free more of their energy for greater joy, meaning and contribution to our groups, social change movements, and organizations.  Roxy and Mary Mackenzie also show that while there's often that risk of inadvertently creating more division within the organization or group, there are also ways to respond that would shift the status quo can help increase support, create a connection, find common ground, and provide greater care for all.
