About the Event

For this session of our Activate Your Voice program, we welcome Crystal Rozelle-Bennett as our facilitator to guide us on a Courageous Leadership journey that centers the experiences of Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC).

With Crystal’s skilled guidance, participants will engage with crucial topics that impact leadership such as white supremacy culture, imposter syndrome, emotional labor and radical healing. Participants will explore how to activate their voices using Crystal’s Courageous Leadership principle;: meet other aspiring leaders; learn from guest speakers; and enjoy good food and social connection.

Child care and transportation provided, if needed! Breakfast snacks and a catered lunch will keep participants energized throughout the day. The Courageous Leadership Conference will take place outside, for a COVID-safe environment that enables us to connect face-to-face.

This program is *FREE* and *OPEN* to all, ages 18+. We welcome people of all genders, backgrounds and racial-ethnic identities; however, BIPOC folks will be prioritized for enrollment. Sign up today!
