Why are some ideas, culture shifts, or dynamic changes successfully implemented and others aren't? One common reason is the absence of a clear, concise understanding, definition, and connection among Aspiration, Strategy and Tactics.
Here is a helpful guide.
Aspiration: The big end in mind
Strategy: What we have to do to make it happen
Tactics: How we make it happen.
Aspiration Become an anti-racist organization

that foster identity and create a sense of belonging

policies and interactions that foster identity and create a sense of belonging.

and create a sense of belonging.
