Ubuntu is a Zulu phrase, which means "I am because we are," essentially implying that all humanity is interconnected. In this moment, the public domain is filled with dialogue about disparities, social determinants of health, and structural and systemic oppression. The path to creating more equity and dismantling structural oppression requires an honest appraisal of the root causes of ills, increasing our understanding of collective and intergenerational trauma, and examining the policies, practices, and procedures that have perpetuated systemic inequities.
As we move through this workshop you will have the opportunity to re-imagine these policies, practices, and procedures and explore ways to cultivate the skills needed in your role as an advocate and healer to create more equitable outcomes.
 
Speaker: Karen Simms, founder of Trauma & Resilience Initiative, Inc., & owner/founder of Meridian K Consulting & Counseling Services
