Enough is enough.
It’s time for change. It’s time for you to want better, do better, be better. It’s time for a collective reckoning.
Apply to be a part of this intimate group learning program to stop being an active bystander and start being a vessel for impact.
Because while most people say they want to embrace diversity, equity, and inclusivity, they lack the commitment needed to dive into the deep work ahead.
So you tell me: do you really care?
There are 5 pillars to understanding equity and inclusion to know where to start on your journey to active bystander engagement. And without a true understanding of these pillars, the internal work simply won’t get done.
Are you ready to walk the walk?
Know this— I care very deeply about Y-O-U.
It takes a lot of courage to admit you need support.
Maybe you just don’t know where to start. Or what terms and concepts you need to know. Or whether you’ll ever find a safe space to share your heart, failures, and desires to begin this journey of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in the workforce, schools, or your community.
I see you. And I’m here for it.
COLLECTIVE RECKONING GROUP PROGRAM
This group program is for:
Individuals who are ready to learn and unpack the ABC's of Race Relations in the USA & the world (yes, this is a global issue).
This is the very first step before you can take action in your daily life and truly be an active bystander. You need to really understand these terms and concepts before you can even think about applying it to your business, school, or community.
We will move through in depth teaching on the 5 foundational pillars:
COLLECTIVE RECKONING IS ...
✨ An intimate group program limited to only *10* participants
✨ 8 Weeks of Live Teaching Calls with Delicia
✨ A safe community and space to ask reflection questions and process the academic terms & experiences
✨ A private community reserved for cohort participant only to collectively go on this journey
✨ Lifetime Access to Participant Learning Portal equipped with all of the teaching materials
COLLECTIVE RECKONING IS NOT ...
✨A quick fix to check this off your to-do list
✨A deep dive into EVERYTHING you need to know… this is just the beginning
✨A one-time thing -- you must commit to the lifetime journey of this work
Collective Reckoning begins on May 13th, 2021.
I am Delicia Alarcón, a higher education professional turned online entrepreneur and personal Hype Tia™ who runs on iced coffee.
I am a First-Gen Latina College Graduate, jersey girl, and my parents are from Paraguay. By day I am a career coach, diversity and inclusion educator, and CEO/Founder of Delilingo Academy!
As a teacher and academic professional, I approach this like I prepare my lessons. First, I teach vocabulary, then sentence/grammatical structures, and then the verbs and conjugations in order to form coherent sentences. Then you use these skills to be able to speak the language. The same is true for dismantling our systems of oppression in society. We must learn these new terms and actively participate in the growing pains of what it means to unlearn internalized racism, sexism, and ableism in our lives.

This group program is for you if you:
2.Eager to show up as an Ally and NOT a performative activist (AKA just posting a black square on social media and then not doing anything after the post). A social media post is a form of solidarity however it can not and should not be the ONLY thing you do
3. Committed to show up to dismantle whyte supremacy, ableism, racism, and sexism [all the -isms] in our society in order to live in a more equitable world.
This “work” exists on social media, on the streets protesting, in the classrooms, in our homes discussing it with our families, and at our jobs. We all exist in these institutions and it is up to US to dismantle from within and from the outside in.
This is a daily moment to moment commitment.
This Group Program can serve as an entry point to your own personal reckoning and from here you must continue. Just because you spent 8 weeks unpacking with our community.
It doesn’t mean you are done.
It does not mean you are absolved of continuing to reckon with your socialized identities, your privileges and/or your marginalized identities.
We all live at the intersections of our privileges, marginalizations, and power dynamics (Kimberlé Crenshaw’s work on Intersectionality)
It’s time for a Collective Reckoning.
