Black Joy Summit Workshop Replay with Reverend Shana Chivon Stephens
Shana Chivon is a multi-passionate change agent that carries a mandate for liberation, a heart for progress and a desire to disrupt the status quo. She is a Veteran of the United States Air Force where she worked as a maintainer on the KC-135 Tanker at McConnell AFB in Wichita, Kansas.
Currently, Shana Chivon works as an IT leader for a Wichita based private company. In addition to her day job, she runs a successful consulting practice where she provides diversity, inclusion and equity training.
She believes, as Fannie Lou Hamer said, “Nobody’s free until everybody’s free.” Because of that she works assiduously to provide education, resources and training centered around defying the myth of black inferiority and dismantling the oppressive power systems (including but not limited to racism, anti-blackness, privilege, the patriarchy, colonialism, homophobia and white supremacy) that still enslave many of us today.
Known to be a voracious reader and researcher, Shana Chivon is also an author, the founder of the Shana Chivon Social Justice Book Club and a creator on Patreon. She believes that where you find diverse and meaningful literature, you will also find liberation.
