2021 Diversity Week: The Art of Radical Self-Love

5:00 p.m.-6:30 p.m.
Zoom (Virtual)

Welcome to the Diversity Week keynote speaker livestream

“The Art of Radical Self-Love”

Kick off Diversity Week by reconnecting with others and hearing from award-winning, New York Times best-selling author and artist Sonya Renee Taylor. She will lead attendees through a conversation centered around embracing ourselves and mastering the art of radical self-love!

Sonya Renee Taylor is an author, poet, speaker, humanitarian, educator, activist and founder of “The Body Is Not An Apology,” a digital media and education company promoting radical self-love and body empowerment as the foundational tool for social justice and global transformation. Through education, personal and social transformation projects and community building, Taylor’s organization fosters global, radical, and unapologetic self-love, which translates to radical human love and action in service toward a more just, equitable and compassionate world.

Believing the power of art is a vehicle for social change, Taylor has enlightened and inspired organizations, audiences and individuals from boardrooms to prisons, universities to homeless shelters, and elementary schools to some of the biggest stages in the world.
