RESCHEDULED: The Minority Tax Phenomenon

This event was rescheduled to April 28 from April 14.

Ashlei Spivey will speak about the "minoritytax" - the burden of extra responsibilities placed on minorities in the name of diversity. Participants will learn more about this phenomenon and how to mitigate its effects.

Ashlei is a bold leader that actively works to create just and equitable communities. In her work as an organizer, philanthropist, and activist, she champions racial and gender equity in hopes to create sustainable system change. She is a graduate of Jackson State University where she studied communications and marketing, then attending University of Texas Arlington for her master’s program in urban social planning. She has spent the last decade of her professional career working in spaces from organizational development to philanthropy.

Ashlei is the founder of I Be Black Girl (IBBG), a collective that supports Black women, femmes and girls to grow, give, connect and take action. IBBG has had outsized impact since inception in 2017, like investing over $200,000 in Black women, femmes and girls. In 2019, Ashlei was chosen as an ABFE Connecting Leaders Fellow, an inaugural 2020 Black Futures Lab Policy Fellow and proudly serves on the ACLU of Nebraska board of directors as the Equity Officer.

Most importantly she is a mom, partner, neighbor and friend.
