Thought-provoking, inspiring, and informative are just some of the many words that come to mind when I think about the 13th Annual Gathering of Leaders.

I had an outstanding time at the 13th Gathering of Leaders conference. It was great to be in a space with people who have different values, difference experience, but, all share a common goal to make their community a better place for all.

I love conferences. Over the course of my teens and 20s I’ve managed to make my way to plenty a convening. Attending conferences open us up to a world of possibilities! We meet new faces from different places, all with an eagerness to learn and grow together. Plus, you’re doing work without being at the office, and who doesn’t love a day away from the office every now and then?

Before the Gathering, I had only heard things from senior leaders at my job and google, of course. I had no idea what to expect. I knew two things: I knew New Profit was an amazing organization that I followed intensely in my work, and I knew this Millennial Impact Fellowship was new. I remember taking a huge deep breath the moment my plane landed at the Hartsfield-Jackson Airport and telling myself to just be myself. I was given the opportunity to come to a city and learn from people I’ve admired for years and I was hoping that I would most importantly be myself. My experience far surpassed my thoughts. I had the opportunity to have many meetings with people who work on issues that I dream of dedicating my life to and this is something that I would not have had the time to do anywhere else. By the last day, I was beyond comfortable with the entire group. I’ll forever remember telling the entire group my natural hair journey. My natural hair journey is a very emotional topic for me, as it likely is for many black women. By the last night, I knew I was surrounded by such supportive people that I was able to tell stories about subliminal racism without feeling any pushback and I will forever remember this experience at my first Gathering.

Somehow and rather unfortunately, the brownness of my skin and the blackness of those I love have always made proximity to violence seemingly unavoidable.
