The Mindful of Race Institute support organizations seeking to engage in the inner work of racism through value-based educational and group development programs.


Examining How We Learn, Live, and Lead

Founded by Ruth King, a former organizational development executive, the Mindful of Race Institute offers a range of interventions that support organizations in embodying their diversity, equity, and inclusion aspirations. Ruth provides value-based training enabling leaders to:

  • Improve racial awareness and literacy;
  • Reduce stressors associated with racial activation;
  • Ripen curiosity of our racial conditioning and its impact on leadership;
  • Cultivate effective reparative behaviors;
  • Respond to racial challenges with more understanding and ease;
  • Examine work structures and cultural norms that uphold racial harm and inequities;
  • Produce accountable leaders.

Examining racism within organizations invites us to question how we live and how we lead. If you are interested in discussing our introspective and transformative programs, get in touch!

Is this work for me and my team?

The Mindful of Race Training Program is designed for groups, teams, and organizations invested in exploring the intersections of racial self-awareness, mindfulness, and leadership, and committed to doing the inner work that supports individual deconstruction of racial conditioning.

Your group need not be racially diverse to benefit from this training.

The content, the depth of insight, the clarity and warmth that you embodied landed deeply, wholeheartedly in the room. I speak on behalf of the collective in expressing our deep gratitude for what you shared, and how you shared it. With immense respect and love.

King explores the impact of racial injustice on communities at the margins, and illustrates practices Black people can embody to support our longevity and dignity. Regardless of our race, we need to develop a new language, a language that centers healing and restoration.

Tami Simon, Founder, Sounds True Publishing

Your contribution to The Gathering was pivotal. I appreciated your pacing. You unpacked the [Mindful of Race] framework with slowness, grace, and care. Participants were invited into a much deeper conversation with themselves with questions and explorations that are challenging and that matter. Thank you for your wise and loving presence.
