Targeted Universalism and Bridging

A conversation about Targeted Universalism with john powell, Director of the Othering and Belonging Institute, Jeff Raikes, Co-Founder the Raikes Foundation and Jenn Hoos Rothberg, Executive Director, Einhorn Collaborative. Targeted Universalism is a rapidly growing model for achieving equity that assumes that we need to shift mindsets to address systemic inequities, that all of us equally belong to our society, and that we all deserve to thrive. The path to belonging is bridging, which, according to powell, “requires that we create space to hear and see each other” In this conversation, powell, Raikes, and Rothberg discuss Targeted Universalism and the concept of bridging, how they have practiced it both professionally and personally, and the opportunities and challenges they have encountered.
