- This event has passed.
April 19, 2022 • 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm$10 – $40
The Mark Twain House & Museum is excited to celebrate the release of Trudi Lebrón’s new book, THE ANTIRACIST BUSINESS BOOK: An Equity Centered Approach to Work, Wealth, and Leadership. Join us for a discussion of this first of its kind business book for the modern world with author Trudi Lebrón and Chion Wolf followed by a reception with live music and refreshments.
Trudi Lebrón has spent the last decade working as a Diversity-Equity-Inclusion and impact coach for businesses, nonprofits, and entrepreneurs — what she learned over that time was that making a lasting change wasn’t about fixing old systems; it was about building a new one. In this seminal work, Trudi lays out a plan for all businesses, leaders, entrepreneurs, and coaches to remix business, so that equity and impact become synonymous with profit and power.
Unlike any other book on the market, The Antiracist Business Book takes an antiracist perspective. It applies it to how we are doing business—at the top, in the middle, and at the bottom, offering tools for advancement in how we work, earn, and lead. The wisdom inside this timely and essential book advocates for a new order of business that creates transparency, opportunity, and disruption. Businesses can no longer be successful while operating as tools of the status quo.
LIVE AND IN-PERSON event. Get your ticket AND a signed copy of THE ANTIRACIST BUSINESS BOOK for $40 or a ticket WITHOUT the book for $10. REGISTER HERE.
