Letter From Carmen Van Kerckhove

carmen and jen Dear Friend of New Demographic,

The year 2006 was an exciting one for New Demographic! We announced our core beliefs, relaunched Mixed Media Watch as Racialicious, celebrated our first anniversary in podcasting with Addicted to Race, and launched two new blogs: Race Changers and Anti-Racist Parent.

We were fortunate enough to gain national media exposure through appearances on CNN and MSNBC, and we also expanded our client base into the corporate world.

The sad news was that my good friend and co-founder Jen Chau made the difficult decision to transition on from New Demographic, but I know you will all join me in wishing her the best as she builds on her important work with Swirl and New Leaders for New Schools.

Thank you so much for the wonderful support you've given to me and Jen. It's been an honor to get to know many of you, and I look forward to continuing our open and honest conversations about race and racism.

So what can you expect
from New Demographic in 2007?

A new blog about workplace issues. Teleseminars that you can participate in no matter where you live. Downloadable MP3s and e-books of our most popular seminars.

And much, much more. I'm excited to see how we'll expand and evolve over the next 12 months.

Have a look at the newly updated page on New Demographic's seminars and keynotes. Each topic is described in detail, and you can also find links to client testimonials, including audio testimonials:

What People Are Saying About New Demographic

"Your comments bring humor to topics people are afraid to laugh at. As one of my students said: 'People are afraid to talk about race, much less joke about it.' Keep up the excellent work!"
--Jacquelyn Lewis-Harris, Director of The Center for Human Origin and Cultural Diversity at The University of Missouri St-Louis

"I feel like I've been walking around with blinders on. The myths you presented really challenged me to be aware of these attitudes. Also, I feel challenged to pay attention to my own preconceptions about interracial couples."
--Anonymous attendee of our workshop on interracial relationships at Swirl, Inc. on October 5, 2005

"Jen Chau and Carmen Van Kerckhove are respected experts in the field of mixed race studies and community organizing, and I found their resources to be invaluable."

"Jen and Carmen are skilled at leading a thought-provoking discussion and are aware of the different facets of a person's identity."
--Betsy Goldberg, Hebrew School Principal & Youth Coordinator at Central Reform Congregation in St. Louis, MI

"Carmen and Jen were open to sharing personal feelings, experiences, and insights that others would not have so comfortably shared."
--Shira Beery, Student at Stuyvesant High School, New York, NY
