Before companies and individuals can begin working toward equity within their organizations, there must be a shared understanding of how race and racism was constructed, how it operates within the social structures and institutions of the Unites States, and a shared language of terms to advance dialogue around equity to activate action. As we look at the life of Jesus and the mandate given throughout Scripture, it is clear that Christ-followers are called to “do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with God” through our words and, most importantly, through our actions. This workshop will help women in the workplace to examine the ways we can interrupt racism in our everyday lives, including by being a Christ-like ally in the workplace.

Our speaker is Jenille Morgan.  Jenille Adams Morgan, M.A. is a researcher and evaluator who utilizes a strengths-based approach to studying the impact of race, ethnicity and socioeconomic status across the life span. She is committed to fostering diversity, equity and inclusion practices in organizations, through education and collaboration. Jenille has been a research associate at the University of North Carolina’s Frank Porter Graham (FPG) Child Development Institute for 14 years and currently serves as the Assistant Director of FPG’s Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.  She is a proud HBCU alumna who received her bachelor’s degree from Howard University and also earned a master’s degree in developmental psychology at Duke University.

Jenille currently serves as lead of her church’s children’s church ministry and is the proud wife of Cameron Morgan who leads the music ministry. Together they thank God for 10 beautiful years of marriage!
