I met Erin in 2012 when I joined the Notre Dame of Maryland University (NDMU) community as Director of Student Leadership and Inclusion.
I met Claudia at NDMU's inaugural Women of the World Conference, produced by Maricka Oglesby, in 2016.
I met Dr. Cynthia Nicodemus at MCPA's annual fall conference in 2017.
They all participated in FACTUALITY separately and collectively came together to bring me to Howard Community College to facilitate my work during their annual Diversity Week.
I'm so grateful; thank you.
The hardest I have ever worked in my career was in January (coordinating the logistics for a very busy February) and February itself which required travel to 13 states (16 including layovers) where I completed a total of 19 facilitations (with 4 of the sessions occurring back to back on the same day).
The end results = more game facilitations in the month of February then all of 2016 (11) and all of 2017 (18)... and more participants in February than all 2016 and 2017 combined!
McDaniel was the third institution visited in the last week that invited me BACK to campus... and as I shared in previous posts... it was quite the honor.
Today I facilitated two rounds of FACTUALITY with various departments and divisions at McDaniel College.
Consider FACTUALITY if you're interested in a unique way to engage your community in what is typically regarded as difficult dialogue.
Similar to my last post, being invited back to an institution, organization, or corporation is always a tremendous honor; many thanks to the University of Richmond for having me back on their campus.
During this last visit, I facilitated FACTUALITY with many students belonging to fraternities and sororities as well as faculty, administrators, and federal employees.
Consider FACTUALITY for your campus inclusion needs.
Being invited anywhere to share FACTUALITY is always an honor... getting invited BACK to a place where I previously facilitated FACTUALITY is the most tremendous of honors. It was honor to return to McDonogh to support their Sankofa student diversity conference by running 4 consecutive sessions.
It was also an honor to partner, again, with Taharka Brothers who served among many ice cream flavors, the FACTUALITY ice cream flavor!
Consider FACTUALITY for your conference needs... and consider Taharka Brothers for your sweet tooth.
I somehow have been able to dodge all of the inclement weather that February had to offer and even got to enjoy the 75+ degree temperatures of southern Georgia. I promise that I enjoyed the facilitation more than the weather... but it was most certainly, a nice treat.
Consider FACTUALITY for your professional development needs. St. Joseph's Episcoal school invited me to present two FACTUALITY sessions for their teachers, staff, and facilities members.
The Head of School enjoyed the session so much, sharing positive feedback with fellow NAIS professionals and encouraging as many community members as possible to attend the afternoon session if they weren't able to attend in the morning.
During my downtime, I explored the National Museum of Civil Rights, where I visited the location where Martin Luther King was assassinated. FACTUALITY is a crash course on the history and prevalence of structural inequality in America, so I am very intentional about learning .
