April marks the release of the Dr. Debi’s book, Daring to Dismantle: Audaciously Addressing Race and Caste in Betrayal Trauma
"Daring to Dismantle: Audaciously Addressing Race and Caste in Betrayal Trauma, is a productive disruption, meaning it involves radically interrupting patterns of betrayal involving a social justice lens because the response to betrayal as trauma, whether on the part of the one betrayed or on the part of those supporting a healing path of someone betrayed, would need to simultaneously explore dismantling systems of oppression one layer in need of healing at a time. First within our own lives, then in the lives of those we touch. " ~ Debra Debi Jenkins, PhD
Diversity and Inclusion in the Global Workplace
Dr. Debi shares insight in collaboration with others from around the world as a contributing author to this book which is an edited collection offering a nontraditional approach to diversity management, going beyond gender, race, and ethnicity. Examining ageism, disability, and spirituality, the book provides a discussion of different D&I applications and introduces a framework consisting of a diagnostic phase, gap analysis, and an action plan, which can be modified to attend to specific needs of organizations. Researchers and practitioners will learn a viable way to address diversity in global organizations.
Disparity Trap Game and DEI Workshops
The games creator Christian Telesmar says, that "Disparity Trap leans on the research and work of Dr. Debra (Debi) Jenkins, a professor in education and psychology and a consultant in justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion. Dr. Jenkins shares the following about the game below,"
"Racism is a system created before anyone today was born and remains one of the most unfinished conversations within the United States. Disparity Trap brilliantly provides a learning opportunity to acquire a deeper understanding of inequity and to begin conversations about racism in an innovative yet poignantly strategic way! Links to statistics give players a relevant connection to how racism continues to impact on systemic, institutional, and interpersonal levels.
Systemic racism, as a system of oppression, has beneficiaries and nonbeneficiaries. I created the language systemically dominant (SD)- those a system was created to benefit and systemically non-dominant (SND) - those a system was not created to benefit for my IST of an ISM paradigm. The paradigm and language prevent misunderstandings about who holds systemic power and privilege which is at the root of inequity. The language SD and SND are used in Disparity Trap to provide language which can promote forward movement and help participants understand inequity as the intended outcome of systemic oppression.
The Disparity Trap board game is fun, educational, and insightful! Youth (ages 14) up to adults can learn how race as a system impacts those of us who live within the United States. Disparity Trap can encourage a step towards the work of dismantling oppression and can bring conversations about race to effective levels whether played at home with friends and family, in professional settings, or in junior high through college- level classrooms."
