Dr. King’s dream was about what we can build together. In 1963, he told thousands of freedom fighters, “We cannot walk alone. And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead.” Davidson and Global Ascension Productions are striving to create communities that live up to Dr. King’s vision.
Charlotte, NC – January 12, 2012 (via PressReleaseNation.com)
Global Ascension Production’s Jamie Utt and Davidson College honor Dr. King’s dream by strengthening the Residence Life staff’s ability to celebrate diversity and influence inclusive communities.
“Davidson has a track record for being one of North America’s most forward-thinking universities, especially when dealing with issues related to diversity and inclusion,” says Jamie Utt, Director of Education and Diversity for Global Ascension Productions- a Speaker Development and Publishing company. “Our collaboration is not only about honoring Dr. King’s legacy for a weekend, but about equipping these young leaders with the tools and philosophies necessary to honor him throughout their lifetime by shaping their own behaviors to create a more just and inclusive society”.
Global Ascension Productions has been on the forefront of teaching leaders how powerful and influential their voice can be. Participants exposed to Jamie’s curriculum become fully aware of their influence and how their focused mind coupled with a servant heart can elevate societies collective brilliance, as demonstrated by Dr. King.
“Jamie is an incredible talent and has the ability to connect the institutional with the personal to ensure that his curriculum supports the participants endeavors for a lifetime” noted Frank Velasquez Jr., Owner of REV Sports Rehab and Athletic Development and 10 year Major League Baseball strength and conditioning coordinator, Pittsburgh, PA. “I am thankful to have Jamie as a resource; his work is critical to establishing a culture of inclusion”.
Davidson College invests a lot of resources into creating a comfortable and inclusive environment for all of their students and faculty members. They are successfully building a culture on their campus that maintains that the residence halls are not merely a place to sleep and study but a place to live and learn. This MLK Holiday weekend provides the Davidson community an opportunity to publicly honor one of the greatest activists for justice our country has ever seen; however, when you visit their campus, you can feel that they honor his legacy year round.
Creating innovative education has always been Jamie Utt’s calling, and as a former teacher himself, he knows ﬁrst hand that education is truly the key civil rights issue of the 21st century. He spent years teaching social studies on Chicago’s west side, helping empower young people to unleash their brilliance on the world that often overlooks them. Jamie teaches that this nation’s knowledge-based economy demands that we provide young people from all backgrounds and circumstances with the education and skills necessary to become groundbreaking advocates for change. If we fail to help all young people to discover, develop and deliver their brilliance to the world, the United States runs the risk of creating an even larger gap between the rich and the poor, which in turn threatens every effort toward justice in this country.
