I work by the motto: do it all to learn it all. This makes me a jack-of-all-trades in practice, though the best part of my job is coming up with creative new ways to engage the public. My role is enhanced through collaboration with my PRR colleagues, who inspire me to be more creative and think further outside the box. Outside the office, I love to hang out with my adopted Husky puppy, Swayze, or get my sweat on at a yoga or crossfit class.
An anti-racist PRR dismantles systems of advantage based on race when and wherever possible. We engage staff of all racial identities in dismantling white supremacy culture at work. This includes personal ideologies, beliefs, and behaviors. And, it includes removing white supremacy culture from the systems, cultural messages, institutional policies, procedures, and practices that PRR and our staff interact with and inform. We believe it is not enough to be “not racist.” We must be “anti-racist.”
