Our service philosophy is rooted in fundamental principles of ReLearning and DDT.

 

We believe information is never truly unlearned. It is impossible for people to return to a blank slate and learn things as if for the first time. Instead, our minds work like very efficient computers, giving responses that are based on the information being programmed into it. As we interact with and begin to incorporate new information, we simply over-write new information to replace the old. We call this process ReLearning.

 

ReLearning is vital to understanding the many forms of racism because we must never forget the methods and consequences of racialized programming on our interpersonal and organizational decision making. Creating an organization committed to equity and inclusion requires constant ReLearning and incorporation of new concepts, new ways of thinking, and new ways of behaving. For organizations, ReLearning starts at the leadership level, moves downward through middle management, then to the employee level, and finally to the client contact level.  

The second principle is diagnosis determines treatment or DDT.  For example, a skilled doctor, mechanic, educator, or mental health practitioner does critical early work to assess why and how something is not functioning properly. We must do this same level of assessment if we are to create an organization dedicated to the principles of equity. This means taking a diagnostic approach to analyzing the power arrangements of our systems and institutions at a foundational level; understanding their development over time, auditing the way these differences impact policies and practices, and understanding the differential impact that these policies and practices have on clients and communities, Only then will we be able to effectively address issues of equity, disparity, and bias in our organizations.
