On September 15, Elmbrook's LAUNCH program hosted four virtual sessions with community member and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Expert, Deanna Singh. Singh, a Brookfield East alum, spoke to over 500 students, staff, families, and community members throughout the day on the power of finding your purpose and of diversity, equity and inclusion.
"We were fortunate to have this wonderful opportunity for our students to learn from a leader in the field of diversity, equity and inclusion," said Dr. Bob Hall, Executive Director of LAUNCH. "Her message was authentic and timely to the experiences that are so important to LAUNCH. Let's continue to find our purpose and hustle!"
"The part of Deanna Singh's presentation that impacted me the most was how she empowered us to start our 'purposeful hustle' today," reflected Eva Kumer, Brookfield Central LAUNCH Student. "She inspired me to start working and planning towards goals I didn't think I was ready for, and encouraged us to find our purpose using her simple strategies."
