thank you
Maurice Stewart

So no PowerPoint? I understand the recording will be coming.
NAA - Megan

Maurice - the recording is also video. So you will see the presentation you are seeing now, which includes the slides.
Maurice Stewart

Will we receive the PowerPoint though?
Kelly Johnston

Thank you! Would it be possible to include the handouts (survey ex. etc.) with the email?
NAA - Megan
40:07
Maurice - I will ask Jimena afterwards. Thank you!
Jameelah Stuckey
40:09
but at times its playful, because they place us in this role to say they did it, but they are not serious about doing the work
Dawn Wiley
40:23
Love being intentional to include people who are resistant
NAA - Megan
40:49
Kelly - the handouts were sent yesterday. If you didn’t receive, I would check your spam folder. If you don’t see it, please email info@naaweb.org and we can send your way!
Kelly Johnston
41:14
Great thanks Megan!
Monique Jarvis
41:20
Thanks Megan. I do have a question of the framing around "equity" -- the conversation was framed around police brutality, and directly tied to elevated racial unrest throughout the country and as I type this is centering how to engage (or not to) engage people of color in the conversation-- so I wanted to ask about the framing of "equity" in absence of "racial equity". I am noting an opportunity to be clear around prioritizing this as a "racial equity" conversation, and not just an "equity" conversation.
Jameelah Stuckey
41:45
How do you gain the commitment from leadership? is it a meeting and they verbally say they agree? what are your suggestions?
Jameelah Stuckey
49:48
teaching tolerance is a great resource @pedro
Pedro Bustamante
50:29
Thank you @ Jameelah
Dawn Wiley
50:30
time and money are an indicator of commitment
Lakshmi Hasanadka
51:03
Also Human Resources: Is this part of someone’s job? Do we have people dedicated to the work in their job description?
Dahlia Shaewitz
51:14
Make the initiative part of the leadership team's performance measures. And ask that they set equity as a goal for the organization, so it stays up front and high level.
Bonnie Owens
51:20
In our city, we focused on getting buy in from one key, high leverage stakeholder first because we knew that she would influence others
Helen Hamilton
51:34
Fortunate for our team, the leadership launched it.
Lakshmi Hasanadka
51:58
Showing the return on the investment is a way to get some leaders on board.
Dana Kunzman
51:59
engage in data driven learning and discuss desired macro outcomes
Miryam Moctezuma
52:05
Yes we first got leadership to agree it was something important, but then it was a little harder to "get the ball rolling" I would say we had a lot of yellow lights so slow going progress
Jasmine Richardson
52:09
Leadership should feel responsible for fulfilling the vision and mission always. And should commit to agreement.
Jameelah Stuckey
52:18
I think the key in what you said is that a third party/external person, can also help with this! it sounds and is taken differently from someone who looks like them and is not a part of the team than it is from me! lol
Jameelah Stuckey
52:37
Thank you all this is great advice!

Monique Jarvis
52:59
Engaging the board has been effective for us obtaining buy in and meaningful movement as well as ensuring we center and elevate racial equity
Jameelah Stuckey
54:52
@monique - how were you able to engage the board? our organization is new and small and I have not been able to engage with the board!
KAREN DIXON
55:05
I can't hear you anymore Jimena!!!
NAA - Megan
55:52
Karen, I’m sorry you can’t hear Jimena. Everything looks great on our end. I would maybe leave the meeting and come back in
Monique Jarvis
58:07
Hi Jameelah! I can appreciate that leg of the journey! It was definitely a process. In short, our entry point in the DEI conversation was backed by leadership and launched with an internal DEI talent group. It then became a "power in numbers" initiative" that grew in influence the outcome of which was securing time with the board who then created their own DEI committee! Would love to connect to share more! mjarvis@leapnyc.org
Jameelah Stuckey
01:02:50
that was 5 minutes!!
Monique Jarvis
01:02:59
@Cynthia & @Benjamin here is the tool I referenced: https://mmt.org/sites/default/files/inline-files/Meyer-DEI-Spectrum-Tool-2017.pdf

hahaha!
Benjamin DiMaria
01:03:56
Thanks Monique!
Monique Jarvis
01:04:48
Thank you for addressing that! I will say that if we can't say "racial equity" then we should interrogate our use of framing conversations around police brutality.
Jaime Garcia
01:04:49
Do you have an example of group rules for committee work on DEI?
Candice King
01:04:55
Is it possible for you to reshape the resources that were sent previously? I think I missed those.
Monique Jarvis
01:05:11
And other race-centered issues.
Garima Bhatt Handley
01:05:22
are we able to come off mute or should we type questions in the chat?
Rachel Ford (she/her)
01:05:32
Diversity can be tokenizing and inclusion implies a power dynamic that is fundamentally inequitable. Do you have recommendations about other framing besides diversity and inclusion?
NAA - Megan

Jessica Andrews-Wilson
01:05:41
Is there a great tool or resource to help us figure out where we need to do some discovery? I don't know what I don't know and I'm afraid I'll miss an opportunity to make some change/create a policy/etc.
Ken Anthony, Ed.D.
01:05:41
What is the best first step internally once you have the team on board with doing the work?
Garima Bhatt Handley
01:05:46
it says I have been muted
Beth-marie Kurtz
01:05:46
I really appreciated your earlier point about creating a common language. The meanings of "equity" and "inclusion" have really evolved in our district and afterschool program landscape over the years.
Garima Bhatt Handley
01:05:47
by the host
Garima Bhatt Handley
01:06:09
okay now I am able to come off mute, thank you
NAA - Megan

sorry about that Garima - I wasn’t fast enough :)

that's okay! it worked now
Gena Woodke (she/her)

yes!!!!!
Sherri Talton
01:07:46
I am feeling good about this.My break out buddies Jill and Sharanda were awesome! it felt like we already knew each other and are from 3 different states and shared some of the same views.
Helen Hamilton
01:07:52
I'm thinking and feeling that we should definitely continue our efforts.
Jameelah Stuckey
01:08:05
Head - I have a lot of work to do Heart - focused/discouraged I feel that my organization wont take it seriously as many of them feel they have arrived and that they are "woke" lol ..Feet - creating a survey
Kiana Letendre
01:08:07
Thinking: Our work has just begun at my organization Feeling: Ready for the challenge Acting upon: more inclusion
Dylan Hartwick

Dahlia Shaewitz
01:08:36
Appreciate action steps and any guides & guidelines. Our challenge is to codify our efforts, make them part of the ongoing policy and practice. With staff turnover, we need to ensure that we aren't re-learning the same things over and over.

Jameelah Stuckey
01:10:13
everybody got something to say but nothing to DO! SMH
Binky Martin-Tollette
01:10:51
I think we need to formalize what we already do and build on that, starting with Discovery to make sure that we as the leaders are connecting with staff and have common language. I feel like we have been assuming for a while now.
Melissa Trumpey
01:11:07
Maurice - Would love to connect! My email is melissat@childrensmuseum.org.

Ideas around practices for limiting biases in work culture, management, hiring and recruitment, and actively engaging in conversations around bias with our youth that relate to our DEI work.
Jasmine Richardson
01:11:21
Have a private meeting with manager and get them to commit to what they will and will not be willing to change. That way, you can begin to compromise.
Garima Bhatt Handley
01:11:23
same here, Maurice! Im at gbhatthandley@higherachievement.org
Bonnie Owens
01:11:23
That happens with us too Jameelah! Or that folks want to do something but what they want to do is that surface-level, 4F diversity stuff rather than the hard work that leads to positive outcomes
Jameelah Stuckey
01:11:41
exactly @Bonnie

I think we've done a lot of discovery and have a strong level of commitment in people, time, money, and resources to move the needle in this work
