Breaking the Cycle of White Supremacy Culture
Join Donte Curtis of Catch Your Dream Consulting for an interactive workshop that invites attendees to explore the ways that white supremacy is harming us and the work that we do. During our time together, we will reflect on how the dominant culture shows up in us (White Folks and People of Color) and will be given tools and strategies to stop the cycle. This workshop will use the collective wisdom in the room to foster new ideas and think about what is possible when we all do our internal work.
After Donte's session you'll have the opportunity to discuss how his presentation applies specifically to volunteer engagement, and will hear from MAVA staff and members about new strategies for building racially inclusive and equitable volunteer programs.
Speaker Bio: Donte Curtis is the owner of Catch Your Dream Consulting where he mentors, inspires, and trains individuals and teams, nationwide, on leadership development, racial equity, entrepreneurship, and making effective change, and supports them to excel in their dreams and create positive change. With over 10 years of facilitation and speaking experience, Donte is skilled at fostering the collective wisdom in the room and creates space to make sure everyone's voice is heard. Probably one of the most energetic people you will ever meet, Donte lives a life that is dedicated to leadership, social justice, and liberation.
