WHAT IS OPENEDEYES?

Over the past six years, OpenedEyes has worked to enhance cultural competence on an individual, organizational, and systemic level.

 

Through the development of our educational model, we have been able to customize programs for consumers and organizations based on various demographics.

 

Our program employs strategies to increase hope, enhance educational and environmental awareness, and improve community connections.

Thank you so much to everyone who donated to OpenedEyes during Erie Gives Day 2021. Thanks to your generosity we were able to raise $2,159!

It's because of your support that we can bring our dynamic programming to area organizations. Thank you again for all of your support in helping us to continue our mission of bringing diversity awareness to Erie and surrounding areas!

We're excited to be partnering with Mercyhurst University to bring a training focused on Cross-Cultural Competency, Critical Race Theory, Mindfulness, and Implicit/Explicit Bias to their full-time faculty members.

“We're really excited about bringing in these experts to help provide some education and guidance in our faculty-wide social justice journey toward creating a culturally responsive pedagogy,” said Dr. Averill Earls, director of the university’s Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE).

MEET THE STAFF

Next up in our series is Shannon Brown - Director of Development.

 

Shannon got involved with OpenedEyes because “I have a passion for unity, understanding self and others and overall wellness. Being in OE gives me the opportunity to work on these passions and share knowledge/experiences with others.”

A fun fact about Shannon: she played the violin for 10 years!
