Dwinita Mosby Tyler: “Allyship: Leading with Collective Work in Mind”

By August 22, 2021 No Comments

In this Zoom presentation, Dr. Tyler will provide a roadmap for leading, working, and serving with “allyship” in mind. According to Wikipedia, “Allyship is the practice of emphasizing social justice, inclusion, and human rights by members of an ingroup to advance the interests of an oppressed or marginalized outgroup. Allyship is part of the anti-oppression or anti-racist conversation, which puts into use social justice theories and ideals.” Dr. Tyler will provide tips, techniques, barriers, and future-thinking strategies to advance a system where collectiveness is the norm.

Dr. Dwinita Mosby Tyler is the Chief Catalyst and Founder of The Equity Project, an organization designed to support organizations and communities in building diversity, equity and inclusion strategies; and The HR Shop, a human resources firm that supports non-profits and small businesses. She is the former Senior Vice President and Chief Inclusion Officer for Children’s Hospital Colorado, the first African American woman to hold that position in the organization’s 100+ year history. Dr. Tyler is also the former Executive Director of the Office of Human Resources for the City and County of Denver, the first African American woman to hold that position in the 63+ year history of the agency. She holds a Doctorate in Organizational Leadership, a Master of Arts degree in Management and a Bachelor of Science degree in Education, is accredited by the Georgetown University National Center for Cultural Competence, and holds a Cornell University Diversity & Inclusion certification. Dr. Tyler is nationally recognized for her equity work with non-profit, community, government, and corporate organizations.

Shared Charity: Harlem Mothers S.A.V.E.

Sunday Platform is our most important and long-standing community event. These gatherings educate, stimulate personal growth, inspire reflection and action, and strengthen our community. Sunday meetings usually begin with music, followed by greetings and a talk given by a Society Leader, member, or guest.  Platforms cover a variety of topics that reflect current events, pressing social issues, and Ethical Culture philosophy. A collection basket is passed and money is shared between the Society and a charity selected for that day.  While contributions are always appreciated, Sunday meetings are free and open to the public.  Each Sunday meeting is followed by a luncheon and social hour.
