Antiracism & YOU!
Antiracism is a term that has been utilized across every strata of American society and even beyond our shores. The goal of this session is to go beyond the articles and books and do a deep dive on two simple questions. The first question is: how antiracist are you really? The goal of this question to conduct a deep on your personal journey of becoming antiracist. The second question is: how antiracist is your school or company? The goal of this question is to analyze the work your organization has conducted on its path to becoming truly antiracist. By the end of this session, participants will be able to understand if their antiracist work personally or professionally is really a moment or a movement and craft out an action plan to continue on the antiracist path regardless of where they currently are in the process.
S.E.E.D.S. Students Engaged on Every Day Success
The goal of the S.E.E.D.S. program is for students to have powerful and consistent engagement focused on overcoming obstacles during the COVID-19 pandemic. Through regularly scheduled meetings via an online platform, students will work with Dr. Omekongo Dibinga. Specifically, they will:
- Share their current challenges and triumphs during the COVID-19 crisis;
- Engage in goal setting practices focused on college preparation, service projects, or social justice initiatives;
- Use this space as a sounding board for real challenges they are experiencing today;
- Create an action plan for an eventual return to school and beyond.
The duration of the program will be set by the schools to meet the needs of students.
Finding Common Ground In Uncommon Times
The purpose of this keynote/breakout is for participants to explore what unites them as opposed to what divides them. We live in a society that is becoming increasingly polarized but even in our darkest moments, there are areas where we can all shine. Participants will learn how to have difficult conversations, how to challenge implicit biases, and how to build a community where differences are not just tolerated but celebrated!
