In her earlier years in the USA, diversity, equity & inclusion practitioner, and Black country artist, Setche, had a hard time believing racism still existed because of her positive personal experiences. Through sustained effort, she eventually recognized how her individual experiences colored her perceptions of the broader reality. She now leverages her experience and expertise to build bridges, helping others see what they couldn’t see and strive to become part of the solution. Setche is adept at facilitating courageous conversations between unlikely diverse community members.

In this chat, we’ll talk about:

  • Building bridges as a way for true and effective allyship
  • Setche’s evolution to transforming hearts, minds, systems, and behaviors
  • Leveraging authenticity to build bridges
