“Leading Through the Intersections” is a journey into the heart of intersectionality, showing how our mix of identities – like race, gender, and background – shapes the way we see and interact with the world. It’s about first getting real with ourselves, recognizing our own stories and biases, and learning how to create spaces where everyone feels empowered to be their authentic selves. Frank Velásquez Jr. will help attendees do a bit of self-exploration so that we can tackle the tough stuff together. We will discover ways how to step up and when to step back. Join us as we shake up the white space and make it an equitable space where the global majority can lead with authenticity, courage, and joy!

Featuring Frank Velásquez Jr. of 4 Da Hood, LLC
