WORKSHOP SUMMARY

Please join us on September 17, 2019 when Eddie Moore, Jr presents "America is Changing...Are YOU Ready?” This interactive, informational, challenging and energetic session examines and explores issues of diversity, privilege, oppression and leadership across America and challenges participants to examine their own biases, behaviors and belief systems. We all have an excellent opportunity to be positive role models, powerful decision makers, and effective agents of change, if we have the tools. We need more leaders for social justice and equity across America. Do you have the skills and ability to lead? Are we making any progress?

This interactive presentation will focus new attention to three significant areas: What we mean by demographics and population, examining how definitions have changed and the implications for bias Power and Privilege: how power works, exploring systems, institutions, and policies Identifying resources and how we can all be proactive in these times


OBJECTIVES:
  • To create an understanding of what diversity and equity mean for the next 25 years in the US
  • Introduce the concept of systems design and the skills needed to push back on our systems when necessary
  • Offer opportunities for on-going work as a call to action and a framework for guidance
