Meet Jessica Pettitt. She is Social Justice.
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Jessica Pettitt is the "diversity educator" your family warned you about. She is easy to work with, accessible, and brings VERY simple concepts that are really hard to incorporate into our lives. Nominated for two years by Campus Activities Magazine for Best Diversity Artist, Jessica's programs are direct, customized, and highly interactive. This workshop will take participants on a journey weaving together politics, theory, current events, and story telling with large doses of humor reminiscent of Bob Newhart, George Carlin, and Paula Poundstone. Some call her the Margaret Cho of Diversity Speakers. This is by no means your average diversity program! Though participants will be laughing, she promises no drum circles, guilty tears, or finger pointing. This will be a HIGHLY interactive program that will leave participants with actual action steps to make REAL change in their lives. Jessica takes 10+ years in Student Affairs, 5+ years of national consulting work, and 2+ years of stand up comedy stage-to-stage as part of her mission to inspire change, dismantle oppression, and recognize our privilege. Through teaching, writing, and facilitating tough conversations, Jessica has figured out how to BE the change she wants to BE. Now it is your turn!
