Book Cover

Renowned diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) coach Seena Hodges, founder of The Woke Coach®, is excited to announce the release of her groundbreaking book, "From Ally to Accomplice: How to Lead as a Fierce Antiracist,” where she shares best practices from her DEI training programs for every person and organization, no matter where they are on their antiracism journey.

"In our day-to-day lives, it’s not enough to simply stand by and be an ally,” said Hodges. “Whether you’re a leader inside your organization or outside of your workplace, it’s time to become an accomplice. This book is an invitation and call to action for anyone looking for support in their efforts to fight against the multi-faceted phenomenon of racism."

In her debut book, Hodges provides a roadmap for leaders, featuring educational tools, personal anecdotes and real-life examples to illustrate the importance of collective action and ongoing education. By emphasizing the significance of listening, learning and unlearning, Hodges empowers readers to cultivate authentic relationships and create inclusive spaces for all.

"I wasn’t expecting a self-help book on racism to be a page-turner, but Seena shares profound expertise and wisdom in such an engaging and straightforward way that it’s hard not to read it cover to cover,” said David Wilson, managing partner at Commutator LLC. “And at the end of it, the case for becoming an accomplice fighting racism is compelling, and the path forward is clear. This book will change the hearts, minds and actions of all who read it.”

Seena Hodges is an award-winning DEI expert who is passionate about equity, intersectional feminism and access to brave spaces for all. She founded The Woke Coach® in 2018 because she wholeheartedly believes that racial equity is the defining issue of our time. As CEO, she leads antiracist programming and inclusion training for a wide range of clients, from local governments to the University of Minnesota, Red Wing Shoe Company, KNOCK, inc., and the Walker Art Center. 

Hodges is a 2022 Twin Cities Business 100 People to Know honoree; a recipient of the 2022 Women Presidents Organization Women of Color Achievement Award; a 2023 Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal Women in Business Awards honoree; a 2023 Twin Cities Business Notable Nonprofit Board Member; a 2023 Entrepreneurial Women of Impact from Women Presidents Organization (WPO) and Women Elevating Women (W.E.W.) honoree; and was named one of the 200 Black Leaders to Know by Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal.
