Opening Keynote by Trabian Shorters
“Asset-Framing is the principle that defines communities by their aspirations and contributions, rather than their challenges and deficits.
“For instance, we hear quite often about the alarming unemployment rate in the African-American community. But what of the impressive 2.6 million African-Americans who own businesses that provide employment opportunities for others?
“Coined by BMe Community, Asset-Framing is getting a lot of traction in the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion arena. Oddly enough, it is not widely practiced by Black community organizations or leaders. It’s a common misconception that you have to illustrate “need” to get help. Any good investor looks for the potential of a return on the investment – that is not illustrated by presenting all the obstacles to success. To better position our people for the future, we must asset-frame our agenda.” https://bmecommunity.org/
Join us and engage with Trabian as we learn about asset-framing and how to apply it in our work.
Trabian Shorters is a retired tech entrepreneur; former vice president of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, and doting father to two brilliant, black twin girls who will live in the better world that we are making together for them.
His pioneering work in Asset-Framing earned Shorters recognition as one of the world’s leading social entrepreneurs, as well as prestigious Ford Foundation, Ashoka and Aspen Institute fellowships. Senior leadership teams of iconic social impact organizations including the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, New Schools Venture Fund and The Heinz Endowments request Asset-Framing for their boards, staffs and grantees.
Shorters’ organization, BMe Community, proves the power of Asset-Framing by training and organizing over 300 influential black leaders to be Vanguards of the Next Narrative on race communities and America’s future. Starting with Asset-Framing, these BMe Vanguard Fellows are taught 21st century leadership skills including cultural competency, social financial literacy, public persuasion and mutuality by global authorities in their fields. BMe Fellows serve millions of families per year and are defined by their lifelong commitment to building a more caring and prosperous society for us all.
Please join us on Thursday, December 3, 2020 from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm for the (virtual) 2020 Live Well Advance!
