Allow Me to Reintroduce Myself

I’d like to reintroduce myself because I love providing so many of my clients with vetted multicultural resources and creating multicultural resources to promote positive change. Now,  when it comes to my learning style, I love to research, and I also love to connect with folks. That’s why I’ve been an educator for over 18 years. And when I connect with folks, I’m a storyteller and go through my own experiences to share situations that I have been in, in the workplace as a community member, as a wife, and as a mother.

The resources I create for my trainees and clients to continue understanding that we are black, indigenous, and other people of color who deserve to be seen, heard, and valued. Our neighbors, relatives, and friends are going through similar situations, and we need to unlearn and relearn the best strategies to make those authentic connections. Now, if you would love to learn more because I have served over 40 organizations, I’m just getting started more about my training style and to see if it’ll fit you.

I’d love to have you on my schedule. Take care, and I’ll see you soon.

5 Tips to Engage Employees During Black History Month

Thinking about Black History Month,  I was reflecting on how to help you, to continue to be more engaged in this month with your Black colleagues, employees, and staff. Black History Month — also known as African American History Month — is a month-long celebration of the lives and achievements of African Americans. Every February, teachers, students, and families gather to learn about diverse historical figures who helped shape society.

The month began in 1926 as Negro History Week, an initiative by writer and historian Carter G. Woodson. Over the years, the excitement around Negro History Week programming grew too large to ignore, so many states started participating in Black History Month too! Even today, people are still striving to learn and understand the Black culture and the many contributors to our nation’s history as well as our contributors to our present society. Here are some constructive tips to keep you engaged authentically with your Black colleagues at work.

5 Tips To Keep Your Employees Engaged During Black History Month

1) Bring Speakers from your community and create a safe space for them to share and listen. Like Melody Hobson said, “You can purposefully invite diverse people into your life, and hopefully they will challenge you, and give you new insights into life. Be purposeful and respectful with your community members, you could learn a lot from them.

2) Highlight Black voices within your organization. We have wonderful resources that deserve to be recognized. You can do this in a way of recognizing their work and not their worth, clothes, hairstyle, or physical features (we’re not here to tokenize people, ugh).

3) Volunteer in your community. Take the time to be out in your community where Black people are and get to know your Black neighbors in an authentic way.

4) Support Black Owned Businesses. Black people are also small business owners. Your economic support helps them and their families thrive in our economy. Here’s a link to my favorite businesses here that you can support.

5) Host a workshop by yours truly to teach you about Implicit Bias and Inclusive Workplace Strategies. If Implicit Bias & Inclusive Workplace Strategies is something that has been of interest to you, then this is your opportunity to learn ways you can help others maintain their identity while also interacting effectively with teammates and customers.
