IMPACT – INTENT
Even the best of intentions can have the most harmful impact – so how do we move away from individual motives to change that positively impacts communities?
BOOKED, BUSY, NOT PRODUCTIVE – THE NEW WAY FORWARD
Our culture thrives on overworked people who are everywhere yet going nowhere. Let’s reimagine a world of healthy, rested, fulfilled people, who understand we can have great impact, work smarter, and more importantly, reclaim our lives that are not just tied to what we produce.
With this caliber of experience, Alencia Johnson is prepared to share practical and passionate advice with audiences on how to stay rooted in their purpose and move effectively as servant leaders in their fields.
Culture is the mighty river that whittles down the stone of intolerance and inflexibility over time.
Specifically, the culture created and curated by Black Americans drives the narrative and influences key players holding the pens to legislation, commerce and more.
Bottom line, Black culture influences everything and everyone, research proves it.
Alencia Johnson has a unique, pressure-tested and proven POV on how public figures, organizations and entire movements have harnessed (popular) culture to ignite major change, and can share how and why cultural leaders in entertainment, tech, fashion, corporate, and additional spaces have a responsibility to take a stand in moments like this.
And for more themed speaking opportunities (e.g. Black History Month), Alencia Johnson can tailor / expand existing messaging to include how oft-forgotten trailblazers in the movement (Black women, Black LGBTQ+ folks, Black disabled activists and more) and laid the groundwork for our current momentum.
Activism and change-making doesn’t just belong to those leading protests or even those with stacked academic credentials.
I’ll energize and equip audiences with real, time-tested tools and perspective on how to be an everyday disruptor right where you are.
Listeners will walk away motivated and inspired knowing how to convert their instincts into insight and finally action, whether in their corporate 9-to-5s, places of worship, schools or wherever.
Through her diverse professional experiences, Alencia Johnson shares key learnings and best practices that connect the dots between social justice and popular culture, weaved in with purpose and my faith.
We’ve all met or seen leaders and wonder, “How do they do that?”
Whether a whiplash career pivot or seemingly early success in a swiftly evolving world, it’s easy to feel pulled and pushed in a million different missional directions while figuring out your own path.
Having the advantage of a career forged over the years at the nexus of politics and policy, reproductive justice, corporate affairs, and popular culture, Alencia Johnson has continued to be led and guided by the north star of her faith, which grounds her and provides her with clear purpose when she will have to both make hard choices, and counsel public figures with their own.
A clear purpose allows us to move seamlessly through careers that others may not be able to define, yet the work still has high impact.
