Solve Wicked Problems.

Close the Gap.

We know that you face wicked problems on a daily basis but don’t have the resources to solve at a systemic level.

Professor LaTanya White’s wholistic model for goal achievement will close the gaps between the wealth and education BIG IDEAS, little resources and lots of constraints so you and your team can change the world in the most authentic and impactful way possible.

Education and Wealth Gaps

No matter what industry you are in, if you are faced with solving one of the world’s current wicked problems, we contend that the root of that problem is the lack of one of two things:

Wealth or Education

Or to make things even more complex, the combination of the two.

Are you an activist fighting against over-policing in your community? We argue that the law enforcement officers in your city need to be educated in a different way. Resmaa Manakem’s My Grandmother’s Hands is a great place to start.

Are you an educator struggling to meet the performance standards that have been imposed on your historically under-resourced students? The communities these students grew up in are under-resourced because there is no economic power in those neighborhoods. It is our position that true wealth accumulation can only happen through entrepreneurial endeavors. Introduce Professor White’s start-up resources as a co-curricular activity for your students and their families.

College Faculty

Between assignment, artifacts, and assessment, there simply is not enough time in the day for the attentiveness your students need to fill that sense of belonging they desire so deeply. Professor White’s education gap model provides a scalable way to ensure that your students get that without burning both ends of your candlestick. 

Community Development Coordinators

Politics, red tape, and fancy titles aside, you deeply desire a higher quality of life for your residents, especially those in historically under-resourced communities, which are typically communities of color. Despite your best efforts, residents in these communities won’t let you or your team get close enough to make an impact. 

By leveraging Professor’s White’s background, experience, access and authenticity through the FEARLESS Community Academy, you can chisel away at the wicked problems faced by the communities you serve. 

Education Opportunity Personnel

Great intentions. Big ideas. No bandwidth. Zero capacity. 

That’s where Professor White’s scalable model, FEARLESS Student Academy, closes the gaps between your big goals for change and the wicked problems you face. 

Social Justice Activists

You’ve marched, you’ve sat in, and you’ve lobbied but you and your grassroots team have just not seen the needle move the way you know it should. 

Partner with Professor LaTanya White to identify the appropriate gap model to solve the wicked problems in your community. 

 

Why Choose Thess Models to Close the Gaps?

Professor White has spent more than 10 years in higher education at a Historically Black College/University. She knows that the lack of exposure to deep learning methods is stunting the educational attainment goals of colleges and universities across the country because she has personal experience managing it. She has witnessed first-hand what the development of a resilient mindset for first-generation students of color will do to close the education gap.
