If you don't know what we bring to the table, you don't get a seat there.

As a woman of color at a predominantly white institution I often find myself wondering, what I can bring to the table. Understanding where my strengths are needed can be quite difficult in a space where not many people look like me. This lack in sense of purpose can be extremely taxing and damaging towards my self-esteem. In this up-close and personal SCORR conference session, Dr. Peace Amadi addresses this problem in all the right ways. She so graciously reminds us that "if you don't know what you bring to the table, you don't get a seat there." She discusses developing self esteem through the realizing of one’s values and passions--that it's not how others view us, but how we view ourselves that determines our self-esteem. Dr. Amadi walks us through this process of self-discovery by sharing stories of her own personal experience, and asking us to do the same.

If you're a woman of color interested in exploring what you can bring to the table, or someone wondering how you can make space for your sisters in Christ at the table, check out this session.
