Dr. Akilah Cadet Speaking Topics

  • Dismantling White Dominant Culture at Work

    During the summer of allyship, we saw many companies release Black Lives Matter statements. But have they done anything almost one year later? This workshop will examine how white dominant culture shows up in the workplace. We’ll learn how to recognize how it shows up at work, ways to move towards an inclusive workplace, and share insight about what it means and how to actively dismantle white supremacy in the workplace. Segments of this interactive workshop will use breakout groups to enhance discussion and build community.

  • The Anti-Racism Journey

    The practice of anti-racism is a lifelong journey of learning, unlearning, and doing the work to change the values, behaviors and structures that perpetuate systemic racism. This workshop will examine the continuous cycle of the anti-racism journey. We will explore how to be comfortable with discomfort, dig deeper into key terms, identify actions for accountability and make commitments that can lead to meaningful change. For those looking for what’s next in your accomplice journey, this workshop is for you. Segments of this virtual, interactive workshop will use breakout groups to enhance discussion and build community.

  • Disability Justice

    Dr. Akilah Cadet will lead an interactive introductory workshop on disability justice that incorporates storytelling from her perspective as a Black, disabled woman. Topics include: Defining “Disability,” Intersectionality, opportunities for learning and unlearning what Disability Justice looks like, advocacy and accountability in the workplace and our wider communities, and more. This interactive workshop will use breakout groups to enhance discussion and build community.

  • Women Empowerment/Women of Color

    Dr. Cadet uses her personal story and insight to share how to be a successful woman or woman of color (WOC) in the workplace. She discusses her experience being fired, the importance of knowing your perceived barriers, building your advisory squad, the power of Beyoncé, and when to move on if you’re not valued. Designed as a keynote or interactive Zoom workshop session.

  • Harmony Not Balance & Reconnecting to Joy

    Many work environments extend into personal life. As a result, people will work forever, whenever. With a pandemic and injustices towards Black people it is important to find ways to reconnect back to joy. This workshop discusses the difference between balance (nothing is ever an exact portion) and harmony (going with the flow and less feelings of failure). Tools and exercises will be provided to rethink personal and professional life.

  • Do the Work: Becoming an Accomplice

    Understanding your privilege and identifying as an ally are a start, yet not enough. We have to do the work. This workshop covers the next steps in anti-racist work, past allyship onto becoming an accomplice. We’ll examine the differences between these two concepts, learn to recognize performative allyship, and share insight about what it means and how to start the necessary work of becoming an accomplice. Segments of this virtual, interactive workshop will use breakout groups to enhance discussion and build community.
