Join us on Wednesday, December 6 @ 6pm EST for an exciting conversation with Jen Franks Ahaghotu, Harvard College graduate and founder and CEO of Disruptive Truth, LLC, as she shares her work and insight on her organization. An educator for 15 years, Jen designed and implemented a multi-million dollar initiative in New York City schools called Learning Partners Program that impacted 250 schools and 100,000+ students a year, the largest scale work of its kind at the time. This included diving deeply into life changing racial identity work with her team and then scaling racial equity initiatives across the city. The inaugural project of Disruptive Truth is called the Black Women World Record and honors the educational achievements of black women around the world. Jen is here to gather black women together to speak their truth and change the world and supports people from other marginalized communities to do the same.
