TMA 1.1/2.1 – MERCY, MERCY ME…MARVIN GAYE ASKED HOW MUCH MORE WE COULD TAKE BACK IN THE 70S. NOW WE ALMOST KNOW…SO WHAT DO WE DO ABOUT IT… SURVIVAL STRATEGIES FOR SISTERS

Dr. Beverly O’Bryant 

Dean, College of Behavioral and Social Sciences, Coppin State University 

“Things ain’t what they used to be”…Pandemic, death, stress, shut-in, home-schooling, isolation, economic crises, inflation, virtual everything… ”What’s going On? ” And, those still standing must continue to juggle work, children, significant others, and more. This session will revolve around survival strategies for sisters that are doable, eclectic, soothing, sensible, and absolutely necessary for sustainable survival.

 

TMA 1.2/2.2 - LIFE SYNERGY & THE POWER OF YOUR NARRATIVE PERSONALITY: IMAGINE TOMORROW TODAY

Dr. Cynthia Winston-Proctor, Professor, Department of Psychology, Howard University 
 

This thought mapping session will provide participants with the opportunity to discuss their agency and positioning. They will be encouraged to share and think about their experiences; specifically, about how they cope with the stressors related to their positioning as women in 2022 (pre and post-pandemic). The participants will further discuss strategies that will allow them to remain/become foreground-ed in the various contexts within which they exist.

 

TMA 1.3/2.3 -STEM WOMEN OF COLOR: FROM SILENCE TO SOLUTIONS

Dr. Leah Cox, Vice Provost for Equity and Inclusion/Chief Diversity Officer 

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill 

We face a variety of challenges that often disrupt our career trajectories, constrain our career aspirations, and undermine our ability to persist in a healthy way. This thought mapping session will focus on how racism, cultural stereotypes, gender discrimination, and stigma, as well as unspoken policies and shame, impact us in extraordinary and peculiar ways. Our voices are often silenced. We will discuss ways to concretely map out how to make our institutions more responsive, reduce our individual stress, and manage uncomfortable situations. 

 

TMA 1.4/2.4 - ROOT WORK: UNCOVERING MERCIFUL SPACIOUSNESS 

Ms. Stephanie Briggs, Founder of Be. Still. Move. 

 

"Hope is in the in-between. If you know where you are, you will know who you are." Marvin Gaye, at the start of his song "Mercy, Mercy Me,"  claims to his listeners that this is his "social section" and then begins addressing environmental losses while offering a plea for personal responsibility and change by simply loving ourselves and, in turn, healing the planet. In this thought mapping session, we will address, through creative mindful awareness practices,  how self-compassion,  hope, collaboration, and self-love are necessary when it comes to health- and values-focused leadership in challenging times. 

 

TMA 1.5/2.5 - THE MEDICINE IS WITHIN YOU
Dr. Adriana Medina-López-Portillo, Founder, Pangea Training

The theme of this session is embracing clean pain (choosing integrity over fear), and how to soothe our bodies for deep somatic healing. The content is based on the work of Resmaa Menakem, author of My  Grandmother’s Hands: Racialized Trauma and the Pathway to Mending Our Hearts and Bodies. 

NOTE: Please have something to color with — markers, colored pencils, or crayons, and a piece of paper.

 

 

TMA 1.6/2.6 - MERCY ABOUNDS: AS WITHIN, SO WITHOUT

Ms. Ariel Salome, Corporate Healer, Program Manager, and Founder of METANOIA 

Join “The Corporate Healer” Ariel Salomé, executive leadership, and spiritual development coach, to excavate the inner resources that allow you to continuously navigate the shift happening in your professional and personal life– as well as the national collective. We will explore how workplace and racialized trauma take residence in the body, tap into the mind-body power within us to release, and learn tools for prevention and rejuvenation. This thought-mapping session will be dialogic and experiential. 

 

TMA 1.7/2.7 -AUTHENTICITY AND JOY AS ACTS OF RESISTANCE AND ACTIVISM

Dr. Nicole Calloway Rankins, MD, MPH, Certified Integrative Health Coach 

In this session, we'll discuss why being your authentic self and actively cultivating joy are meaningful acts of resistance and activism, 

especially for women of color. We'll also go through exercises to help you identify ways to comfortably show up as your authentic self and also easily have more joy in your life. 

TMA 1.8/2.8 - HYPERVISIBLE BUT OVERLOOKED, SILENCED WITH A VOICE: RECLAIMING OUR AGENCY AND POSITIONING IN 2022

Dr. Kamilah Woodson, Professor, Licensed Clinical Psychologist, Counseling Psychology Ph.D. Program, School of Education, Howard University

This thought mapping session will provide participants with the opportunity to discuss their agency and positioning.  They will be 

encouraged to share and think about their experiences; specifically, about how they cope with the stressors related to their positioning as women in 2022 (pre and post-pandemic). The participants will further discuss strategies that will allow them to remain/become foregrounded in the various contexts within which they exist.
