9 Keys to Liberation
Mama J’s Approach to Liberatory Design using the Global Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Benchmarks: Standards for Organizations Around the World
Liberation (verb): To be free from imprisonment or bondage. For most of us, it’s disengaging from the constraints—real and perceived—that limit, hold us back and oppress us. It’s a dismantling of Supremacy in all its intersectional forms. Then, continuously committing to responding from a place of wholeness.
- Know Thyself to Love Yourself: What’s at the core? Bringing back the broken pieces of ourselves. Reclaiming the “broken” in order to call ourselves home and embody wholeness.
- Compassion: Learning to Love Yourself. Being Courageously Bold. Lovingly challenging yourself to keep showing up kinder to yourself. Reconnecting to your inner child and inner knowing.
- Be a Disruptor: For what matters to you. You can co-create your own revolution. By leading with love, intention, and equity. Rebellious revolution is the lovelution.
- Expect (and Accept) the Unexpected: Expect (and Accept) the Unexpected: In riding the wave of White Supremacy, we can enjoy catching the wave while expecting and accepting the crash. Because we cannot ride the wave forever. Rest is essential.
- Originality: There’s only one you! Be a unicorn. Showing up more as our authentic self.
- Brilliance: Each of us has a light to shine. It’s our journey to determine how we can and will shine our light.
- Unconventional Thinking: To be our authentic self, we need to step out of the status quo. Including previous notions/expectations of perfectionism. It’s time to think outside the box.
- Dream Your Best Life: Reclaim your ability to look towards the horizon. What if, you leaped? Dream of the net that will catch you. Then all of the possibilities from making that one choice. Even with adversity, how will you choose to save yourself?
- The Collective: By knowing thyself, showing compassion, being a disruptor, expecting (and accepting) the unexpected, originality, brilliance, unconventional thinking, and dreaming that you are the pebble that’s going to co-create the ripple of liberating ourselves and all of us.
