Oppression of Equality: Being the Only Women in the Room
A successful civil rights attorney, professor and businesswoman, Jasmine Rand has fought for the rights of others who faced discrimination based on race or gender. However, on a personal level, she has had to fight against inequalities in the business world. Rand has found that as she becomes more successful, she is surrounded by fewer women. The challenges she faced in breaking the glass ceiling in a predominantly male-dominated field are not that dissimilar to the challenges women across the country face. In this talk, Rand discusses being the “only woman in the room,” a place she found herself in many times as a young, successful female attorney. What makes this presentation unique is that Rand focuses on the experience of a woman, “once she gets in the room.” To be successful, the expectation is that women somehow must part with their femininity, dressing in business suits to compete in a male-dominated field, or that discussing motherhood might be perceived as less ambitious and not committed to a career in business. If true equality exists, why are so many women parting with their core identity to prove they are serious about their career? Rand will inspire confidence with her own story and leave you with a sense of empowerment for your own sense of identity.
I Am Trayvon Martin”: How a Group of Students Sparked a National Movement
Jasmine Rand was the attorney at the forefront of the civil rights case that sparked a national discussion on race in America when Trayvon Martin, an African American teenager, was walking home from a 7-Eleven after purchasing a bag of Skittles was fatally shot by neighborhood watch volunteer, George Zimmerman. While representing the Trayvon Martin family, Rand was an adjunct professor at the University of Miami, teaching “legal advocacy, media and the pursuit of social justice.” During a lesson, Rand’s students coined the phrase, “I Am Trayvon Martin.” In this talk, Rand explains the role media played in launching this national movement. Out of tragedy, young people mobilized in a peaceful campaign for change that even inspired President Obama to declare, “I Too AM Trayvon,” after the jury came back with a not-guilty verdict for Zimmerman. It’s an insightful look at how media plays an important role in the national dialogue of race in this country.
Modern Civil Rights Movement
Despite decades of progress in American civil rights, our nation is in the midst of a “modern” civil rights movement. The deaths of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, and Tamir Rice have sparked a national conversation about race and justice, and inspired a movement for change. The attorney at the forefront of these cases is Jasmine Rand. In this talk, Rand shares her insight as a civil rights attorney, past and present, and the challenges of injustice and inequality that she has fought for on behalf of her clients. Through her high-profile cases, she has become a national voice of hope, justice and equality. She is boldly tenacious and reminds audiences that the key to fighting for civil and human rights is not in a quick victory, but in never accepting defeat and never settling for inequality.
