Join us as disability and inclusion activist Imani Barbarin discusses what we can do to dismantle our deeply embedded ableist tendencies to create more inclusive communities.
Impact work can sometimes be hard to quantify. How do you tell your story and stand out from the crowd in a way that speaks to your passion for change? Join us for an interactive workshop on how to compellingly craft and deliver your story of impact.
Clearing away clutter can help you make healthier choices, improve your relationships, and cultivate a more balanced life. Join Kenika Williams, professional home organizer and TFA alum, as she talks through the power of spending 30 minutes a day for a week to declutter practically any space that you inhabit. She'll give you a blueprint on the best way to navigate decluttering your space, resources that will personalize this work for you, and and set the foundation for focus, balance, and impact.
Unwritten rules about gender conformity are pervasive in our society, and especially in our schools which should function as inclusive, safe, and brave spaces for students. Policies and guidelines that support gender expansive individuals are few and far between, and the lack of such protections can dramatically impact our environment and experiences. Join us for a discussion on gender identity, equity, and how we can work toward inclusivity together.
Mindful self-compassion combines the skills of mindfulness and self-compassion to enhance our emotional well-being. While mindfulness increases our awareness of the present, self-compassion encourages greater kindness and understanding of periods of suffering. Individuals who are more self-compassionate tend to have greater happiness, life satisfaction and motivation, and overall better physical and mental health. Join Marisha Dixon, Wellness Leader and TFA alum, as she talks through how to become more self-compassionate, use self-compassion practices, and harness empathy for growth and impact.
Access to opportunity should be a universal truth, but for so many, inequity and legislative instability leaves lives hanging in the balance. Join us for a conversation on immigration justice, where we’ll celebrate the diverse and intersectional immigrant community, explore the impact of immigration policies on our kids and communities, and actions you can take to advocate for immigration justice.
"I don't deserve to be here." "I'll be found out!" Imposter Phenomenon is a common occurrence that can keep us from feeling a sense of belonging and accomplishment, especially in spaces where societally reinforced expectations of who belongs or who succeeds are pervasive. What does recognizing your own strengths look like in a world that’s set up to not always clearly recognize them? How do you identify when your imposter voice takes over? In this interactive workshop, we'll dive into how to navigate imposter phenomenon and learn to identify triggers, as well as understand the roots of imposter phenomenon in inequity.
Our thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and attitudes can positively or negatively affect our biological functioning, meaning our minds can affect how healthy our bodies are! What we do with our physical body (what we eat, how much we exercise, even our posture) can impact our mental state, positively or negatively. This results in a complex interrelationship between our minds and bodies. Join us as we evaluate the relationship between mind and body and discuss the ways we can build a stronger connection-- allowing us to be healthier, stronger advocates for our communities, each other, and ourselves.
Boundaries. We all know we need them to find success with work, family, and friends. They allow us to fight anxiety, codependency, burnout, and more. How can we set healthy boundaries that nurture and grow our relationships? Join us as we discuss what boundaries look like, how identity plays a role in our boundaries journey, and how we can express our needs clearly and without apology.
