Join us in a conversation on The Courage to Be Partial: The Implications of Equity in Conflict Work by Ei Ei Samai, Principal at Samai Culture Design, on Monday, July 22, 2019, at 9:00 AM ET.
Drawing upon lived experience as an immigrant woman of color in the US and 20 years of professional experience in social justice work, Ei Ei will share her journey unlearning “fairness as identical treatment” and what it means to embody equity as a personal liberation tool and operationalize equity as a collective transformation framework.
This webinar will:
- Define courage
- Examine words such as neutrality, Omni-partiality, and equity
- Highlight the harm of identical, unseen, and unrepresented treatment
- Exchange concrete practices for personal and collective transformation
Ei Ei uses neuro, social, and design sciences to facilitate the growth of brave people, teams, and social contracts. Her skill-building as a mindful cross-cultural communicator began when she learned Vipassana meditation as a 4-year-old. She began her journey with justice work as a working-class immigrant teen at a Silicon Valley High School in the 90s, later participating in student and women of color spaces in college to learn from liberation movement builders such as Angela Davis and Grace Lee Boggs. She gained her aptitude for system and pattern thinking through a combination of Pre-Med and Religious Identity studies.
In addition to holding a Master of Science in Organizational Management and Transformative Leadership, she is certified in advanced facilitation, experiential training, community mediation, conflict transformation, restorative justice, ecological model of leadership, human system design, and in Conversational Intelligence® by the late Judith Glaser. In 2019, she was chosen as a Courage Catalyst in the first cohort of Brené Brown’s Dare to Lead™ Facilitator Training.
With over 20 years of experience in social impact, Ei Ei holds grounded expertise in shaping bold conversations in areas such as educational equity, diversity and inclusion, social and environmental justice, trust recovery, client experience, team dysfunction, collective impact strategy planning, program and service design, family and community engagement, collaborative partnerships, knowledge management, and organizational culture.
