The learning journey for those who identify as white can be found here >

In the summer of 2020, we experienced a global awakening around racial oppression and injustice amidst an equally difficult backdrop of a global pandemic. Many leaders and organizations continue to be challenged by how to both learn from these hard truths and also, to build adaptive, resilient and thriving cultures.

What can we do?

How can we enact real and lasting change?

Heal Collective Trauma and Embody Anti-Racism is our signature Seven Stones learning journey that goes beyond leaning in, to breaking through in your life, your organization and your community.

"People are aware that they cannot continue in the same old way, but are immobilized because they cannot imagine an alternative. We need a vision that recognizes that we are at one of the great turning points in human history when the survival of our planet and the restoration of our humanity require a great sea change in our ecological, economic, political and spiritual values."

- Grace Lee Boggs, Civil Rights Activist

“Jen and Gina of Seven Stones Leadership invite and empower us to uncover and dispel self-limiting myths inherited from the culture, open hearts and minds to the most relevant truths within each of us, and pay that learning forward to enhance and unite communities of all kinds. The homework alone was worth the price of admission! The community calls and gatherings were equally nurturing, transformational, fun, insightful and relationship-building. Seven Stones delivers an experience aligned with its teaching and offers a simple, powerful context to invent a fresh future for you and yours, the next generation, business, and our world.” — Michelle P.

“Gina and Jen, thank you again for a life transforming workshop last week. The explorations and distinctions you have created and shared with us are deeply impacting my work and my life. I feel so blessed to be part of the conversation you are creating.” — Julie Ann O.
