Originally founded in 2007 the company Inside Out aka ISO Inc. has been working diligently to change people’s minds from the inside out. They broke ground on their movement by starting workshops on race healing and diversity training. The founder Ernest Crosby strongly believes that issues plaguing our community stems from the fact that people have not completely healed from racial adversity. He knows that if human beings of all ethnicities could dialogue openly, overcome racial stigmas and accept one another for their strengths then they could advance as one and recognize similarities instead of differences. Through this process all negative systems in our world could be revamped or altered for the better.
