In this week’s episode, I chat with Dr. Ronn Johnson about assessing and addressing systemic and structural racism in law enforcement. Dr. Johnson is a clinical psychologist, a Professor in the department of Clinical Psychiatry, and the Associate Dean for Diversity and Inclusion in Creighton University’s School of Medicine. His scholarly research centers around recruitment and selection of law enforcement officers and culture with agencies and the profession. He has consulted with every major agency; city and state, nationwide, and is a very highly regarded expert on matters of antiterrorism, corrections, and police and forensic psychology.


We discuss:

 - historical and current practices in law enforcement recruitment, selection, and assessment

 - the application of Ignatian leadership principles like education and advancing social justice 

 - how to use your expertise and opportunity to be an ally

 - how organizations can effectively and sustainably implement change to decrease and eliminate racial inequities

 - embracing difficult conversations in order to advance equity and justice in our society
