11:00 – 12:00: The system or the “ME”–What must happen first?

Corey Best, Founder of Mining for Gold 

In every system, there are amazing individuals that uphold practice, policies and behaviors that offer immeasurable opportunities and challenges to becoming reinvented. In our quest toward liberation, racial justice and prevention, it is encouraged that we never forget to sequence our imagination to make meaning of how we view the most impacted people. Through the conversation, Corey will invite you to begin considering re-prioritizing where and how we seek revolutionary shifts in our interconnected “systems”. At every decision point, there is us, a family, a leader, a parent, a human. Could it be possible that change must first happen at the individual level? There will be tons of nuggets, lingering questions, messages, as we unpack what it means to LEAD (Learn. Explore. Act. Discover) for a transformed “ME”. Corey strategizes with our racialized history to remind you that the answer to that most pressing question–HOW, will be revealed when you know WHERE. 

12:00 – 12:30: Closing with PIP Leaders
