🖐🏾Another High 5 for the season finale of #RemixEQLive Season 5! Tune into our Community Reflections show, “Perspectives & Priorities”.

During this show, we’ll hold space to reflect together on how our perspectives shaped by identities and experiences influence what, who, and how we seek change.

Recognizing that many of our #socialjusticewarriors are part of communities that have been historically marginalized, I’ll share a few considerations for how to

💮 create space for yourself and others to share their perspectives on the happenings they see and the change they seek in their communities.

💮 prioritize the ideas, experiences, and requests from community members (including yourself) – whether they are shared or counter the existing narrative for desired change.

Along the way, I’ll “remix” our learnings, practices, experiences, and inspiration into our Remix EQ™ Community as we work together to make the world a more just place!

Join the Remix EQ Live experience, where we drop knowledge and inspiration by asking questions, sharing examples, and connecting for change!
