I have mentored over 200 teens over the past 6 years through my nonprofit on diversity and current events and continue to lead open group discussions regarding diversity and inclusion for individuals ages 5-18 as well as adults in a corporate setting. I have many years of experience facilitating difficult conversations regarding civil rights and African American History. I have been serving on the Women of Color Community Leadership Board for a Fortune 500 company in Diversified Outsourcing Services industry. This unique is group is a branch of their Diversity and Inclusion department. Through this position I have facilitated, created, and organized trainings on diversity and inclusion, anti racism, and holiday specific courses (history of MLK Day, Kwanzaa, Juneteenth, Indigenous Peoples' Day, and Black History Month) for the work place. In edition utilizing elective courses I have taken though my undergraduate and graduate degrees (World history, American history, North American Slavery) I also have extensively studied the books/textbooks for the purpose of teaching classes for school aged children for various non profit programs and after school organizations, and children on parents who are employed with above listed company as a company benefit on various African American heroes and events both virtually and in person. I have done various workshops through Learning for Justice Foundation. A handful of these workshops specialize on talking to children in grades k-12 about the hard topic of slavery.
