While crunching numbers following the FACTUALITY Second Annual Back to School Tour, I realized that I facilitated for over 1000 people, which means that FACTUALITY has officially reached over 10,000 participants!!
What an exciting milestone!!!
Today, I concluded my Second Annual Back to School Tour at Stoneleigh Elementary and I was super impressed with the Principal and staff.
I specifically asked this group for a picture because I was SO impressed with their understanding of the issues and their openness about the need for systemic change. Bravo! The Stoneleigh community is fortunate to have you.
Special thanks to Fran Glick of BCPS for coordinating a FACTUALITY session for all of the librarians in the district/county. I worked with 175 individuals and you can tell by the comments offered during the debrief that the tool truly enhanced empathy.
This was such a lively session, filled with people who are so committed to better understanding structural inequality and dismantling it. Shout to Baltimore County Public Schools for hosting the January session that led to this August facilitation.
I went to Montessori school as a child so it felt really special to share FACTUALITY at the same type of instution that served as the foundation of my education.
I applaud the vulnerability of the participants in this session; the students are very fortunate to have you.
Shout out to Loyola University, who has supported FACTUALITY annually since it was created in 2016. Every August, FACTUALITY supports F.I.R.S.T. (Find. Ignite. Reflect. Serve. Transition.), which provides First-Year students with the experience of beginning the college journey through the lenses of prayer, reflection and Jesuit identify.
What made this session super special was that my co-faciliator, Queenstar stepped in to facilitate as I was en route from Dallas following a session with the American Heart Association.
Queenstar, thank you for granting me the permission to dream BIG. It wouldn't be fair to say that I was impressed by your facilitation. I need a word that surpasses that! SO great to have you (back)!
And Scott, it's always a joy to see you, thank you for having us back.

We're already looking forward to next month's facilitation!
Special thanks to Kristen Neilsen for securing a facilitation at Crossroads Center. I met Kristen many months ago at a FACTUALITY facilitation. She approached me as soon as the session concluded telling me a day, on the spot, that she would work on securing for a facilitation at her institution. Kristen has played FACTUALITY three times this year already! Thank you!
Today was so surreal. I went from sharing a hall with Baltimore Collegetown and trying to get students engaged with their offerings to becoming one of their offerings. I had such a great time facilitating FACTUALITY for the Fast Forward U’s Collegetown Leadershapes Orientation. Thank you Kirsten for the invite.
