The 4-H Real Talk series is led by Keith Jacobs, Illinois 4-H STEM specialist. This dialogue series presents an honest reflection on the experiences of racism which our Black and Latina staff have had during their tenure with 4-H. The goal of the initiative is to highlight past failures and future possibilities in how we support anti-racism among our workforce, volunteers, and youth membership. We will utilize this series to challenge organizational change, even in situations that produce personal discomfort. We will continue to expand the 4-H Real Talk series as part of the ongoing Illinois 4-H DEI (Diversity, Equity and Inclusion) initiative.
