Beyond Call Out Culture: How Do We Hold Each Other Accountable?

Now available to stream.

Description:
Call-out culture has increasingly taken root in American society when individuals, groups or brands are publicly criticized for participating in oppressive or racist behavior.

Call-out culture has continued to be widespread during the pandemic, social unrest, and political upheaval. However, many community activists and groups believe the call-out method does more harm than good. Some think it’s time to move toward a “calling-in” approach where we create an environment for individuals and groups to be held accountable for their actions by learning and engaging in productive discourse focused on achieving equity goals.

In this episode, the panel defines call-out culture, assesses its impact on our community, explores when it’s appropriate to call out individuals or groups, and discusses strategies on how to effectively call-in individuals to achieve equity goals.
