We live in turbulent times with echoes of the past resurfacing in the form of political agendas, hate crimes, tensions and a sense of betrayal with law enforcement, and families torn apart. Today, we have permission to narrow our understanding and tolerance of one another... to express outright hatred and commit acts of violence.
It is urgent that we find our way together. As the world becomes more global, the need to build bridges rather than walls is critical.

Quantum Culture© presents a bold new model for Diversity and Inclusion work, distinguished from most other curricula in several important ways:
In this challenging time of civil unrest, I’m so grateful to have attended Grace Flannery’& Alexsandra Lantigua’s recent workshop: “Mind Your Privilege; or is it Minding You?” - a hands on, though-provoking deep dive into privilege, what it means, how it’s made manifest—and what to do about it. Their groundbreaking program not only helped shape my perspective, but added a needed and welcomed voice of understanding, knowledge and support as we all struggle with the challenges and dangers of privilege. The program was moving to everyone on the call (more than 50 facilitators and coaches) and helped us all understand how to show up for each other and acknowledge privilege, hold each other accountable and, most importantly, bring about real change. If you have a chance to go through this work with them, do so! It may be one of the most important choices you can make.

It was power and privilege week. Grace and Alexsandra came to do systems coaching. It was quite phenomenal! We had long suspected that we had unsurfaced conflict
We also had a whiff that our unsurfaced conflict was related to power and privilege.
We could not have anticipated what was trying to be learned among us. They brought wisdom from our elders; had us bury our weapons, and nudged us to authenticity. It got real, fast!
As the white, straight, cisgender person in charge, I felt like the center of a bulls-eye. It was painful and connecting. It was vulnerable and revealing.
Grace and Alexsandra created and held a container for each of us to be safe, for truth to be told, to deepen our understanding through our stories, and to notice how they converged and broke us apart. They made space for us to do the hard work we’d been avoiding as we happily lived in the land of artificial harmony
It’s hard for me to articulate the depth of impact and growth Grace and Alexsandra cultivated with me and my team. To illustrate, at one point, I found myself experiencing compassion (albeit brief) for a certain notorious leader.
This week was just the beginning of new strength for our team. We are a work in progress. Because of our ongoing work with Grace and Alexsandra, we stay in courageous conversation. We stay.

I am elated to have been able to experience the power of Quantum Culture. After working with Grace and Alexsandra, I feel like I can actually take a deep breath and feel the possibility of hope through their transformational approach. They offer a facilitated learning approach that is easy to understand yet deeply powerful. It is rooted in positive psychology focusing on possibilities that debunk the dichotomies of good vs. bad and us vs. them. This approach is not guilt-focused or fear-provoking, which creates much more safety and incentive for people to do vulnerable work in examining and challenging deeply-rooted mindsets. Their foundational principles are illuminating by demonstrating how everyone has power and privilege, though how this manifests is situational. With this as a basis, everything that follows is quite empowering and enables the possibility of courageousness for all concerned, by recognizing the power we do have so that we have a choice to make a difference. This directly includes the power and privilege in the role of bystander.
