ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

Let's Decolonize Speaking Together

Decolonizing Speaking taught by Jace Meyer, top rated speaker coach + facilitator with glowing reviews, explores how we communicate to reverse colonial narratives. 

You’ll deep dive into concepts, vocabulary and applications around decolonizing your speaking and communication. There will be group exercises created to help discuss and explore our learnings and unlearning as a circle. You’ll walk away with real-life decolonizing practices for language, speaking, listening and communication.

The workshop gives you the language, guidance, care and tools to feel self-assured in your Decolonizing Journey in relation to how you communicate. While the teachings and Indigenous theory are grounded in Jaye’s worldview, they are applicable across Indigenous Territories.

Glowing Reviews About Jace

“I love her. The combination of Jace with our small group of peers was amazing. She did a great job at facilitating our feedback and conversations with each other and had her own very valuable two cents that she shared also. Every session with Jace was so impactful.

-Madison Sneath | Shine Bootcamp Alumn

“I can't say enough good things about Jace. Her expertise and experience were second to none and the perfect fit for our varied mini-cohort. She's incredibly articulate and precise with her constructive, respectful feedback. She was always fully present and actively listening, one-on-one or in a group setting. She was/is a wonderful ally: warm, supportive and calm. It was very important that I make her proud when I did my talk. Thank you, Jace!!!”

-Marlene Dong  | Shine Bootcamp Alumn

“Exceeded my expectations! Jace was incredibly generous with her time and SOOOO engaged: she listened to what we had to say, provided valuable feedback, met us where we are, supporting our unique strengths, and celebrated our success! She was all in and it was palpable that she was also enjoying the experience! We even had a celebratory Google Hangout with our group after the Showcase! We bonded! 
Please, have her come back, so others may benefit from her amazing energy and knowledge!!”

ABOUT SHINE BOOTCAMP

Educating Ourselves And Our Community On Indeingous practices When It comes To Speaking + Communicating

Hi, we’re a professional speaker accelerator for women. We help women speak up, gain confidence and become respected speakers. 

Our mission is to elevate marginalized voices. The people who are underestimated. At the the highest level, this means empowering more women to speak. That said, we believe that without intersectionality our mission falls flat. Ultimately, our mission is to elevate the voices of those who don’t readily raise their hands to speak or aren’t recognized when they do. Especially Indigenous women. Because “too often the ‘I’ is left out of the BIPOC” (Shayla Oulette Stonechild, Founder of the Matriarch Movement).

On top of uplifting the voices and stories of Indigenous women, it’s also important to educate ourselves - and our community - on Indeingous practices when it comes to speaking + communicating. Hence why we've partnered with Jace Meyer to bring you this first-of-its-kind workshop: Decolonizing Speaking.

Land Acknowledgement

Shine Bootcamp was founded on the land of the Coast Salish peoples–Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations.

 

We’re a small, fully remote team, and much of our work now takes place virtually. Our community is primarily North American, but we have members from all over the world. Land acknowledgements allow us to engage in ongoing reconciliation by reflecting on a singular physical space.

Though much of our work now takes place virtually, it’s important to continue self-education by asking questions and learning more about reconciliation. We encourage our community, team, coaches and partners to take time to learn about the lands they are currently on, and to explore this Indigenous Ally Toolkit by Dakota Swiftwolfe and action these learnings daily. This acknowledgement was inspired by Feminuity.
