Social Justice: How to be a Good Ally

We get it. You have Black and Brown friends and colleagues you adore. You exclaim, “Black Lives Matter!” For your LGBTQ friends, you believe “Love is Love”, and you post supportive images on your social media…but is that enough?

This program dives deeper into ways you can show up as an ally, not only during social justice movements but also in everyday life. Participants will take a hard look at how they currently show up in these spaces and how they can do better (with the right tools). Eboné will share ineffective vs. effective ways of ally activism.

Speak Up or Forever Hold Your Peace

If you had the opportunity to make someone feel seen, give someone equal access, or save someone from harm, would you do it? Many of us have witnessed problematic incidents or actions happen right in front of us, and too many times we did and said nothing. Now is not the time to sit back and be complicit. When it comes to being an active ally, the time is now to speak up.

Many people assume speaking up must be a public announcement of sorts, but that’s only one way to use your voice. The art of speaking up can be used in various ways and this keynote will give you the tools and best methods for you to find your voice and use it for good. Whether you’re shy, outspoken, or somewhere in between, this discussion will help you to identify the best way for you to show up when it’s needed.

  • To identify the best methods to speak up

  • How to breakthrough their fear of speaking up
Black History is American History

Many students don’t know or understand Black history. Most of America can count the number of Black changemakers and historical figures they learned about in school on one hand. But why are most of us limited to this knowledge of Black history? After all, Black history is American history. Black history continues to exist to expand American education and this keynote presentation was created to do just that.

By using the art of storytelling and relatability, Eboné creates a unique way of exploring Black historical figures, experiences, and important events that have shaped our past and present. It’s time to go beyond the Black history basics because knowing your past, helps open the doors to the future.

  • New stories about Black culture and historical figures
  • How Black history has shaped our future
  • We all have more in common than we think
LGBTQ+ History & Pride

As we celebrate Pride month, this is a great time to assess how you show up for the LGBTQ+ community (and other groups who need your support). Your allyship is important now more than ever. But understanding why it’s important means understanding the history of the LGBTQ community. In this special Pride Talk, Eboné discusses the LGBTQ community past and present, and different ways you can be in action as an ally within your organization and amongst friends and family. No matter who you are or how you identify, we can all show up and be better allies Pride 365 and beyond.
