Toussaint Bailey, a "husband, father, son, brother, executive and Black man in America," like so many others, has experienced daily the pain of racism. His sense of rage, sadness and confusion became more prominent after overtly racist events of the past few years. Struggling with how to continue to function as a Black CEO in a nearly all white firm, he had for the first time an authentic, raw conversation about racism at work. As a result he founded The Just Listen Project, which works to reduce the problems of racism through one to one conversations in which participants connect on a human level, deeply listening to Black people and their experiences of racism.
