Making Space for Truth: The Healing that Precedes Reconciliation – A Talk by Tiffany Jana

February 17, 2020, in Videos > Talk, by

This talk titled “Making Space for Truth: The Healing that Precedes Reconciliation” was given by Dr. Tiffany Jana at the Justice Conference, 2019.

Dr. Tiffany Jana shares experiences in creating space for healing through an emerging national, grassroots truth and reconciliation movement in the United States. While many such efforts have taken shape around the world, this equity and inclusion expert has collaborated with a diverse cohort of leaders to model a contemporary way forward. Come hear about a journey that has taken them from the Deep South, up the east coast and across to California in search of personal, local, and national narratives that reveal the pain and truth of America’s shared and shattered history. Dr. Jana and her American Truth and Reconciliation collaborators believe that the truth can and must be exposed and shared in order to begin the healing that must precede the desperately needed reconciliation in the United States and beyond.

Dr. Tiffany Jana is the CEO of TMI Portfolio, a network of socially responsible, interconnected companies that cultivate organization inclusion worldwide. TMI was the world’s first diversity and equity-focused Certified Benefit (B) Corporation. Dr. Jana’s military upbringing, and subsequent predilection towards travel, exposed them to dozens of countries and cultures that made them question whether all of the focus of difference and discrimination was the best use of human energy.

The Justice Conference is an annual Baha’i-inspired forum for the exploration of international law, global governance, justice and ethics. It takes place in the Netherlands and all are welcome to participate!
