An Introduction to Anti-Racism and Equity Work with Nicole Osei, M.Ed., MSW
Today we bring in Nicole Osei,M.Ed., MSW, Anti-Racist Consultant and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Coach and one of Amanda’s oldest and dearest friends (yes, my friend’s are brilliant!). As three white women running a podcast and business, we want to make sure that we are doing our own anti-racist work everyday. Fortunately, Nicole agreed to record our conversation so you could hear her share her experience, enlighten us, and teach us about anti-racism and DEI. Nicole also gave us one of the greatest nuggets about anxiety and white supremacy that we have ever heard– and I (Amanda) have used it in almost every therapy session since.
So take a listen to learn what Nicole thinks white parents should know, how we can work towards raising anti-racist children, and even what we can do at Virginia Family Therapy to run a better business.
This was recorded before the murder for Daunte Wright, but is being released early because more opportunity to listen to Nicole means more opportunity for everyone listening to do their own anti-racist work.
Thanks for listening to this one. It is important.

Disclaimer: Please remember we are real live therapists, however this is a podcast and is not considered a therapy session. Not only because there is no co-pay but also because we can’t speak to your individual experiences. We are here to help you keep raising healthy kids. And remember, if you are an imperfect parent, we are right there with you. If you or someone you love is in immediate danger, please call your local crisis hotline or go to your nearest emergency room.
