In the coming months, the Council will host Globally Grounded, a recurring self-identifying BIPOC only (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) exclusive program. This program will serve as an opportunity for self-identifying BIPOC community members to gather, discuss, and hear from expert speakers around global issues topics in a space that is safe for and thoughtful of the Global Majority.
Each speaker will provide a deeper lens into a specific global issue or region, pulling either on their professional or lived experience, and will integrate a mindfulness practice to ground us during each conversation in an informal, conversational, and welcoming space. All speakers, facilitators, staff, and attendees will be BIPOC identifying.
We know that BIPOC community members often feel conversations about the world do not include their experiences or are about them without them. Globally Grounded will serve, as a BIPOC only space, to change the way we talk about the world.
