Room At The Table by Dr. Renée Branch Canady

Room At The Table by Dr. Renée Branch Canady


What Was Your First Memory of Race?


This opening question is the heart and soul of “Room at the Table.” The word equity is thrown around in multiple media outlets, corporations, and non-profits. Diversity, Equity, Inclusion… Many shy away from these terms, convinced that they already understand. In truth, these concepts are a mystery to most. It’s more important than ever to grasp the vital, far-reaching aim of the equity lens. What does this work look like? What does it sound like? What actions must equity leaders take to turn the future of leadership into a reality?


With public health injustices on the rise, grounded equity leadership can forge the path to a more healthy, understanding, and effective outlook for all of our futures. In her groundbreaking work, Dr. Renee Branch Canady, CEO of the Michigan Public Health Institute, shares through research and candid stories what it’s like to be on the front lines as an equity public health leader. In a culture centered on optics, Dr. Canady brings to light the true act of doing for the sake of change.


Points of focus include:

• The innovative concept of “Leadering”
• Using our outrage to enact change
• Seeing, saying, and doing differently
• Acting courageously in the face of institutional racism
• Leading with authenticity
• Harboring the conviction to move equity work forward, one step at a time
