Dear White Friend: How Are We Doing, One Year Later?

At Tugboat Institute® Summit, 2021, member and CEO of TriVersity Construction Mel Gravely took to the stage and spoke about his recent book, Dear White Friend: The Realities of Race, the Power of Relationships, and Our Path to Equity. His 2021 talk was powerful and impactful. This important conversation is one that continues to be relevant across the country, in all areas of our lives, including our businesses. So we asked Mel to speak again in 2022 and give us an update on his thinking and the progress of the conversation on a broad scale.

In this short talk, Mel shares his key learnings from the past year and the factors that he believes must be at the front of all of our minds when we recommit, as we must, to this effort. Only together, and with renewed commitment, can we work toward making our businesses, our communities, and this country an equitable place for all.

Watch and be inspired to commit yourself to this effort, for both the short and long term.
