Nurturing Our Leaders
Mind, Body & Soul
MMSI recognizes that we, as leaders, often neglect ourselves for the good of others. This FREE workshop will allow us time to refresh our focus, reflect on our inner being, and rejuvenate ourselves to continue providing the much needed service to empower our young girls.
Our bodies are temples and we must recognize the importance of embracing and adapting self-nurturing habits for our health and well-being. Please Join Us!

MMSI's Dr. Nathalie C. Lilavois will present:
Cultural Connections: What are we teaching our children?
Like adults, grade school children bring their identities and cultures to school as part of who they are. However, given the not-so-subtle messages of the dominant culture, how do we prevent our children from feeling like second- class citizens? In this interactive presentation, we will examine the impact of identity and context through a culturally responsible lens. We will share ideas and develop strategies for building stronger connections in our schools and communities by embracing our wonderfully diverse talents, assets, and skills.
