Kira Hudson Banks

Dr. Kira Hudson Banks has been working to support individuals and groups to understand themselves, others and systems of oppression for over 20 years. Kira enjoys facilitating difficult dialogues and has been described as making complex and controversial topics accessible and intergroup interactions more understandable. She has done so in schools, communities, institutions of higher education and international corporations. Currently, Dr. Banks is an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology at Saint Louis University, where she teaches and conducts research. She also serves in a consulting capacity to many organizations and regional initiatives such as the Ferguson Commission. Recently Kira launched a YouTube Channel to translate psychological concepts for lay people. One series on the channel is Raising Equity, which explores ways to intentionally raise children with the knowledge and understanding of systemic inequities and to equip them with the skills to create an equitable society rather than accept the status quo. She is a long-time St. Louis resident and mother of two. Find out more about Kira at her website.
