Colleges & Universities: Start with U
Each person has several aspects of their identities that typically remain stable throughout their lives.
On top of these, we have innumerable ways we are similar or distinct from each other from personality to birth order.
It can be overwhelming to develop inclusive spaces with the proliferation of identities.
It is doable and possible.
In order to have a positive and inclusive culture, each person needs to understand how these identities impact even the smallest of decisions as individuals. Creating inclusive and anti-racist spaces start with U. In this presentation, participants will uncover how their identities not only shape the ways the think and see themselves, but also how they relate to others.

- Develop diversity and inclusion practices that seamlessly promotes a positive and healthy campus culture.

Racialtude™ for K-12 Schools
Teaching Humans Not Academic subjects
A teacher who ignores the saliency of race in this country and it’s impact in the classroom does a disservice to the students and their families.
Children are humans who do not deserve to have their identities and experiences ignored for the sake of a teacher’s comfort.
Teaching requires bravery and willingness to challenge and confront themselves in order to powerfully lead children and facilitate their educational growth.
The more intentional a teacher is in continuing to grow and expand her/his Racialtude™, the more comfortable and effective she/he will be in connecting with students and families across race.
Children as young a 3-6 years old begin to perceive and develop an awareness of race. It’s not just from home or school. Children receive messages from racial attitudes embedded in society. After all, we are social beings.
