Key Speaking Engagements

“…words actually matter. They’re significant, they can transform and open up our imagination.” – Opal Tometi


Knowledge is power, but knowledge accompanied by action creates impact. My goal in every engagement is to offer meaningful opportunities for action for the communities I engage with and to learn about what they’re already doing to create change. Below are some of my key speaking engagements. I love creating experiential learning engagements, and I’m available for keynotes, workshops, panel discussions, and more.
