“I am a southern white working-class male educator. I #LiveInclusively by committing to continual self-transformation through listening deeply to the world for what I don’t know and what I might come to learn.”

Travis Jones is an author, speaker and educator whose main areas of interest are race, religion, cultural competency, human flourishing and leadership.

As a sociologist, Travis is particularly attuned to group dynamics, issues of power and all of the ways our respective cultural worlds shape our thinking and relationships. He is passionate about creating a world where everyone can flourish.

As a consultant with The Winters Group, Inc., he works to marry the best of humanities and social science research with the evidence of our everyday experiences to inform content design, facilitation and consulting services to organizations in the public and private sector.

As an educator and facilitator, Travis is committed to transformative pedagogies that utilize a learner’s cultural world as the starting place for reflective action in the world.

His TEDx talk, Bad White People, explores how white people can be better anti-racists by being rebellious against the false promises of white supremacy in all its forms. He was a featured guest on NPR’s TED Radio Hour episode on Confronting Racism to talk about his talk.
