The second session will be a workshop focused on learning and applying key concepts.  Testimonials: "I had the privilege of being apart of the first Scarabys Consulting MasterClass discussing social equity and it was beyond life affirming. To be able to see the true value in community and work, outside of monetary capital, gave me the push I needed to take my work to the next level. I would recommend Scarabys Consulting to everyone and anyone that is ready to evoke real change within their work." - Tatjana Rebelle "Through our Culture Shift class, we established social and cultural networks that extended beyond the classroom setting. We learned powerful ways to enhance community investment, civic engagement and economic development to improve urban community well-being...The class motivated me to focus on my own social responsibility to engage in social justice endeavors that make a positive difference in sustaining neighborhoods and communities with effective urban renewal efforts that benefit all people, regardless of their racial and socioeconomic status." - Latosha Rowley Course Schedule: 1st and 3rd Mondays, 9-11am August through October.
