A FALSE NARRATIVE about education & work.
People have placed too much hope in the educational system (k-16) and our public education systems and higher education do not deliver on its promise of “The American Dream”. Additionally, that “American dream” didn’t include the needs & experiences of BIPOC. People are exiting those systems still largely unprepared for building the lives they have imagined. As a result, we have huge disparities in the global workforce and people (young & seasoned) get stuck in careers/jobs without a plan for economic shifts and environmental factors (like a pandemic). The diverse & intersectional identities of the people this is affecting also magnifies the diversity, inclusion & equity issues in organizations, in the workforce and in talent pipelines. Aspire2HIgher’s unique approach to personal & professional development (and diversity training) can help!
