Embrace Diversity: Unity Through Diversity
Being born a certain skin color should not shape or influence your experience in this world, yet unfortunately, it does. But, we can change that.

That’s exactly what this workshop is designed to help you to do.

Healthy & Happy Interracial Friendships
Interracial friendships can be quite the challenge when we don’t know what hurts and how to build a safe and trust-filled place. Often women of color express how distrusting they feel about white women and white women often express how intimidated and afraid they feel about doing the wrong thing when it comes to being in relationship with women of color. So, we’re stuck and not moving forward together but only further apart. But this doesn’t have to be this way. We can learn how to have happy and healthy inter-racial friendships and this workshop will show you how.

Be the Light in Darkness
There’s likely not a touchier subject in the Christian church than the issue of racism in America. Yet as Christians we are called to be the light in the darkness. Yet the history of the Christian faith and racial justice for people of color is far from being the light and there is still quite a bit of darkness to be exposed. The church is to be at the forefront of diverse unity and we can get there, but only if we understand how. This workshop will do just that. This workshop is designed to share a practical perspective on how the church can be leading the way in the healing and hope of diverse unity.

"While brainstorming speakers for our Young Professionals Network’s Lunch & Learn panel, Monique Melton was a no-brainer. We were looking for local experts in networking to build business relationships and Monique not only teaches others how to do this but puts it to practice every day. She meshed with our other two panelists effortlessly and got our audience excited to go out and apply what they learned right away. I look forward to working with Monique on future projects and would highly recommend her to any individual or group looking for an expert in this field." -Anjelica Eitel
"I would definitely invite Monique Melton back as a speaker at our annual women's conference. She kicked off the day with a high energy and deeply empowering talk called Living Your Best Life. I loved that she provided real strategies and techniques that participants could take home and apply in their everyday lives. What makes Monique so special is her raw vulnerability and her ability to transform a room of seemingly unconnected people into a place where deep love is felt and found. She was the gift our group needed in order to move into the transformational segment that followed her powerful presentation." - Erin Lewis, Dream Queen Association
“Monique has so much energy and passion that she can captivate a room as soon as she starts speaking. She has a unique gift of making each person feel as if they have known her for years and they are family. We were so thankful to have her share her inspiring message that encouraged attendees and was a stand out favorite.” - Todd Watson, CEO of Show It + Host of United Conference
