We had the pleasure of having Dr. Deirdre Cooper Owens as our guest for our Black History Speaker Event.  Dr. Cooper Owens’ talk, Beyond Black History, is very compelling and her discussion on Black history resonated well with our audience members. Her ability to break down history to a level that is engaging and easy to follow was a big win for our Firm. In just the last few days, many of our employees have shared how her approach provided them with valuable insights into Black history and intrigued their interest to want to learn more. We are grateful for her presence at our event, and hope to have her again in the future.

“Michael Twitty’s visit to Shippensburg was outstanding! One faculty member said it was one of the best, most memorable visits for a speaker that he could remember.”

Dr. John Bloom

Associate Professor, Dept of History and Philosophy, Shippensburg University (PA)
“What a fascinating and insightful session and conversation on TBD: Travel, Being Black and Doubt. Candace’s (Doby) message needs to be heard by all of us (white IE professionals and student affairs staff, really everyone on a college campus and in the workplace! )”

Jennifer Ramos

Study Abroad Director, Methodist University
“Virtually or in person, no one else is as exact as an educator as Dr. Deirdre Cooper Owens. Her talks are a must-add to anyone trying to change and challenge the current narrative of medical norms.”

Sallie Sarrel

Co-Founder, The Endometriosis Summit
“Jennifer (Hamady) has a knack for figuring out how people tick and uses it to help people get the most out of their voices, personally and professionally.”

Paul Crick

“In a time when origin and heritage are finally enjoying the culinary spotlight, Ashley English emerges from the sweet hollars of Southern Appalachia as an honest and refreshing voice. You’ll find no truer heart and account of what it means to reject, embrace, interpret and celebrate the kitchen we come from. As a mountain girl myself and working in the TV food industry, I see many iterations of this new brand of home cook, but y’all, take notice — Ms. English is the real deal.”

Selena Lauterer

President, Artemis Independent
“Jennifer (Hamady) was the highlight of our event, and year. It is rare to see someone so talented and powerful also bring such warmth and tenderness to the table. And to so effectively connect and communicate with an audience. We all were left in awe and transformed.”
