     2) The difference between creating a safe space and creating a brave space
     3) What it means to call someone in versus calling someone out
     4) How the core of this conversation stems from understanding intent versus impact

In Part 2 of this Lean Into You podcast, we cover:

     1) Some practical strategies for creating an anti-bias culture in your center
     2) How leading this work can operate as a self-care method
     3) How the desire to preserve relationships doesn’t excuse accountability
