The Inclusive Enterprise Podcast with CURE’s Judy Lubin

If you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together— I am inspired by this well-known African proverb as it reflects what our guest and I discussed in this episode of the Inclusive Enterprise Podcast —the importance of working together. Learning and moving forward. We all can contribute to an equitable culture in the workplace and in the communities where we live. It’s a process.

As we marked the second anniversary of the murder of George Floyd and approach another year of anniversaries for the murders of Breonna Taylor, Philando Castile, and so many more – the question begging to be asked is what real change has occurred? Or have we lost momentum?

Our distinguished guest is Dr. Judy Lubin an analyst, equity strategist, and President of CURE (the Center for Urban and Racial Equity). CURE is a strategic research and consulting firm that partners with people and organizations to advance equity through policy, systems, institutional, and community change. Dr. Lubin is also a researcher and adjunct professor in the Howard University Department of Sociology and Criminology where her research focuses on race, gentrification, health, and social policy.

She recently published the  Racial Equity Report to provide organizational leaders with a clear plan to help them make measurable improvements in their racial equity transformational efforts.  It serves as a tangible resource for Nonprofit Leaders to Deliver on Anti-racist Pledges Made in 2020.

Our insightful conversation is an important reminder of the value of race equity within the nonprofit sector and that all sectors can learn from. We discussed several tangible steps for framing the issue within your organization and working to move towards greater equity. Doing so can make your organization’s workplace and community where you live, more effective and impactful.

Professor Lubin regularly writes about the intersection of race, politics, and media on her site and as a contributor to the Huffington Post.  She has also been featured on national and local media including The Wall Street Journal, PBS.org, Baltimore Sun, Ebony Magazine, theRoot.com, Chicago Sun Times, Reuters, XM Satellite Radio, Diverse Issues in Higher Education, among others.

Judy Lubin

Dr. Judy is an applied sociologist, racial equity changemaker, yoga and mindfulness practitioner, author, auntie, bestie and beach lover. Judy’s elemental nature is water, and with her she brings calming, reflective energy to hold space for deep listening, inner work and transformative dialogue. 

The curator of the Embodied Justice program, she hosts the accompanying podcast and co-facilitates events and dialogues focused on the collective healing and sustainability of Black changemakers.

At CURE, Dr. Judy has built transformative racial equity frameworks and change management processes that have impacted thousands of lives. She began her career focused on health disparities, recognizing that stress from societal racism can become embodied and manifested through “weathering” that prematurely ages the body and shortens the lifespan of racially marginalized communities. 

She is unapologetically committed to centering Black people and the communities that have inspired her life’s work. The daughter of Haitian immigrants, she grew up in South Florida surrounded by music, her grandmother’s herbal garden, and the struggle to make it in a country that saw her family as outsiders. 

In 2022, after experiencing multiple health emergencies coupled with burnout from the intensity of the “racial reckoning” that increased demand for CURE’s racial equity services, Judy began a process of listening to the wisdom of her body, healing old trauma wounds, and reclaiming rest and her love of mind-body healing. During this time she explored somatics, indigenous and and ancestral healing practices and earned certifications in multiple healing modalities including yoga and energy medicine.

Emerging from a place of rest and listening to what her soul wanted to share, she now weaves mindfulness, body-awareness and spiritual activism to support changemakers and organizations to regenerate their leadership and give to the world from a place of ease and wholeness. 

Long committed to promoting women’s health and wellness, she is the author of The Heart of Living Well: Six Principles for a Life of Health, Beauty and Balance.
