10,000 Lives Initiative
In a perfect world, that statement would be a reasonable and simple truth, and everyone would be treated with dignity and respect. Sadly, that’s not a reality for far too many. Enough is enough.
In recognizing the humanity of our fellow beings, we pay ourselves the highest tribute. – Thurgood Marshall
Diversity, inclusion, and belonging make the world a more beautiful place – and that’s a world we want to help build. We’ve spent almost 50 years studying the science of relationships and how to improve them. We’ve seen our RQ solutions implemented with great success at Fortune 100s, universities, government agencies, non-profits, and beyond. Now we want to give our award-winning training and assessments to those who need it most in times like these.
We’ve withheld our statement until now because honestly, a statement was not enough. Here’s how we are going to take action. We will invest in young, black leaders in HBCUs and high schools who will help create a better world than the one they’ve been given. A world where they matter. A world where they’re valued and given a fair opportunity. We at Core Strengths are working to certify 500 teachers, mentors, and administrators to become Core Strengths Facilitators, who will then train 10,000 more in their respective communities. All on us.
We recognize that systemic change is needed. To this end, we will also offer free training to law enforcement agencies and others on the front lines where racial and social justice issues are best addressed.
Lastly, we will continue to partner with our corporate clients to help shape inclusion and diversity initiatives that foster productive action. We will do that in our own organization as well.
There’s a long road ahead of us, but together we are stronger.
