Permission (to lead) Granted!
September 29, 2022
Hosted by Dr. Veirdre Jackson
Black Women's Educational Alliance, referred to as BWEA, is an organization that was founded in 1976 in response to the expressed concerns about the equity of opportunities for black women in all divisions of the field of education. Tameron Dancy, the current Vice President of the Philadelphia Chapter of BWEA, chairs the Career Mobility Committee and offers women the opportunity to move from managing problems to leading solutions. Understanding that education is the most valuable tool anyone can attain to enrich their lives, BWEA strives to develop resources that support sound thinking patterns for women leaders to enrich their mind, sharpen skills, and strengthen emotional resilience and inspire the same within children, families, and communities they influence. Join us for a conversation with Principal Tameron Dancy and explore myths about leadership, professional growth strategies, and ways to invest in your capacity. What do you need to lead in a time of change and strain? Our flip side conversation will empower women to understand the impact of their voice and give themselves permission to FULLY lead.
Living Strong: The Flip Side of Adversity
Thursday at 2 PM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel
Resilience isn’t about bouncing back, but bouncing forward. Living Strong: The Flip Side of Adversity brings powerful stories and fearless conversations from experts in the field of business, relationships, emotional, physical and mental health, and faith-based communities together to give practical insight on how there is always a flip side to every story. Each episode creates a brave space that combines proven lessons from neuroscience, powerful tools from authentic connection, key principles from life lessons, and practical promises from faith-based insights. Trauma, toxic stress, broken habits and hurting hearts don’t define destiny, but peace isn’t passive. It requires an exchange. To create a flip and access peace in the middle of the pieces, you are challenged to make an exchange of the lies that have kept you mentally hostage in basement moments for a Steps of Growth framework, which cultivates a shift toward growth planning and forward movement.
