Still Not Convinced? Here's What Folk Have to Say About My Work...
RMAPI's (Rochester-Monroe Anti-Poverty Initiative) adoption of a Fight for $15 starting wage owes its existence to you, your tenacity, and perspective in authoring the Disparity report. I stand on your shoulders and others on the project do as well. By my count, several tens of thousands of local workers have been positively impacted.
Bruce Popper is the former president of the Rochester and Vicinity Labor Council, AFL-CIO, and former vice president of 1199 SEIU United Healthcare Workers East.
I am learning to advocate for my kid and make virtual school accessible for him. I like the format of this Journal. I have been able to apply it all in real time! The Journal takes all these huge issues and breaks it up into understandable pieces. It is very challenging but approachable. Each day built off the next and I often found questions would linger in the back of my mind all day. This applies to all relationships across the board from parenting, my family, my friends, community. It's helped me kind of zero in where my power is and how to influence change. – Kristy
It’s really a layered and rich process of discovery. I am only on day four but I am appreciative of what is being revealed. -Stephanie
You should attend this leadership academy if:
You know that we can't wait for change
You want to ensure your equity initiative succeeds in the face of great odds (Look at where we at now. We can't afford to continue like we have)
You understand that justice needs good leaders, like you!
So here's the deal I’ve been doing advocacy work for over 20 years.
I have worked with nonprofits, healthcare professionals, and even municipal leaders so I have seen all types of initiatives and what works and what does not. I have also taken beaucoup (that’s fancy for “a lot”) leadership development courses/classes/seminars and often they DO NOT include disability justice principle in their programming.
I have seen (and read!) a lot of books on diversity, equity, and inclusion, and some on disability, but NONE combine these thoughts in the unique way that you'll see in this experience, which is based on my book, Cultivating An Intersectional Mindset.
During this 6 week academy me and many experts are going share key strategies to help propel your advocacy and leadership forward. I can guarantee that my methodology is transformational and will help you be able to act in real time on key issues of equity, diversity, and inclusion. Most people tell you the "what" but I will also show you the "how" This could be the most valuable six week-long event you'll spend so sign up now!
ONLY 25 SEATS AVAILABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
