‘The time is now to figure this out.’ Lighthouse CEO moved to action by equity workshops
As part of a Special Report on Greater Cincinnati Foundation’s Groundwater racial equity workshops, Soapbox Cincinnati is sharing stories of people who experienced the trainings and their responses to it. Lighthouse President and CEO Paul Haffner is featured in the second in the series.
“Paul Haffner will be the first to say he grew up in Cincinnati in a white-privileged environment. Now, as an attorney, former business executive, and — since 2016 — CEO of a not-for-profit organization, Haffner has taken it upon himself to learn about the underpinnings of structural racism in our community and our nation, and to share what he’s learned.”
