The AllySHIFT™ monthly blog ....."From Moments to Movements"

Updated: Nov 16, 2023

Don’t become weary of doing good! That was yesterday’s message, and exactly the reminder that I needed. The AllySHIFT™ Movement has given me the opportunity to advance and magnify bolder and better allies. Our event, AllySHIFT Episode 2: Pathway to Jackson at Jackson State University focused on issues related to Housing and ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance).

  • AllySHIFT™ is a powerful framework for individuals and organizations to build and reinforce authentic collaboration and SUSTAINABLE cultures of inclusion.

  • AllySHIFT™ is a format that shifts challenging conversations and situations into opportunities for discussions, team building, and problem solving for implicit bias mitigation and self-awareness.

  • AllySHIFT™ is a process for developing immediate plans and long-term goals for focus and empowerment of people, places and things that have been marginalized and "valued less."

  • AllySHIFT™ is a model for engaged allyship that meets people where they are while supporting their advancement to be bigger, better, and bolder allies for others as well as themselves.

AllySHIFT™ is “allyship sustainability.” It is a real thing, our real thing, and a primary driver for diverse and inclusive leaders.

“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up."

­~Galatians 6:9


One of those leaders and one of our featured presenters is Craig Jonas CEO and founder of CoPeace, a forward-thinking holding company building a portfolio of selected for-profit companies with measurable social and environmental impact. Craig’s driving principle is “business as a force for good.”

Craig’s authentic approach and process for impact investing was a centerpiece for our, “Localizing the Global ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) Framework”. His presentation was a model for ally sustainability and ally as activist. Please enjoy his discussion for AllySHIFT® Epidsode 2.

​AllySHIFT Episode 2, “Pathway to Jackson” was a journey for some; for me a pilgrimage. On Day One at Jackson State University, we experienced networking and a variety of conversations with each other, including meeting a wonderful group of scholars from Clark-Atlanta University. Inspired by an outstanding group of leaders, we covered Government and Public Policy, Academia, Cultural Anthropology, Business and Entrepreneurship, and Emotional Health and Welfare.

Day Two gave us an exciting and immersive experience at the Southeastern Rodeo Association’s Black Cowboy Rodeo event at the Mississippi Coliseum.

To get us started join us for part one of our Keynote Conversation with Anna Gifty Opoku-Agyeman, Editor of The BLACK AGENDA, Bold Solutions for a Broken System. Enjoy it, we did!
