    in Culture

    1. Why do we have HBCU's 2. Do HBCU's hold us back or project us forward? 3. How do they truly stack against each other (statistically: graduation rate, retention rate, number of degrees, value of degree, return on investment, starting salary, etc.) 4. Why did you choose HBCU or PWI. 5. Can HBCU's ever reach PWI size or stature. 1. Do HBCUs better fit African Americans Academically? 2. Why don't more black parents expose their children to HBCUs? Is there a culture stigma behind it? 3. Could the top HBCUS compare to the Top Ivy League schools? 4. Is pledging the divine 9 at PWI different than at HBCU? Is there still a need for the divine 9 at HBCUs? 1. How do we work to remove classism, elitism, sexism, etc. from HBCU culture? Is that even feasible? I.e. How do HBCUs avoid breeding Kanyes who are only angry until they have access to the parts of whiteness they envy? 2. How do pro black students at PWIs handle their experience? 3. Some black people feel unsafe in both spaces. Remedy? 1.Why do black students go to pwis only to try and recreate the HBCU experience? 2. Can a black student ever feel completely welcome at a pwi? 3. Do black students in the north hear enough about HBCUs in highschool? 4. Why do some black students choose pwis for "diversity" but only hang out with the black population?

    How The Private Service Industry Impacts Philanthropy

    in Business

    On this episode of DEMA LIVE we will be joined by Philanthropy Expert Ron Poindexter, Senior Learning and Development Specialist for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.  Before taking a management position with the foundation, Ron worked as an Executive Assistant. 

    During our discussion we will address how PSP’s impact the ability of their Principals’ to be more involved in philanthropy.  This can range from researching various charities to see which organization’s values best align with the principal’s, to managing how personal donations are made to the organizations. Not only is this charity work rewarding to the Principals involved, but working on philanthropic projects can have lasting, positive effects on PSP’s.

    As Ron delves into his journey from an Executive Assistant to a management position for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, join us live by either logging or calling in and listening.  As always, this is an interactive show so make sure you write those questions down and submit them through our Facebook page, Twitter account #DEMALIVE, email them to info@domesticmanagers.com or just call in!  You can meet Ron at the upcoming 2015 DEMA Conference on Leadership in April by regsitering at www.demaconvention.com.
