Biography

"Social Justice: When Diversity Isn’t Enough"

First there was Pluralism, then Multiculturalism, followed by Tolerance and then Diversity - now Social Justice. Notice how nothing really seems to be changing? Jessica Pettitt does too and radically changed her approach to benefit college students, staff, and faculty alike. 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 connect getting "it" to actual measurable action steps. Now it is your turn!

Nominated for two years for Best Diversity Artist and in 2011 for Speaker of the Year by Campus Activities Magazine.
