MBA Workshop – The Challenge of Eradicating Female Genital Mutilation Among the Masaai People of Kenya: Is It Scalable?
Time: 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Description: Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) is a global and culturally sensitive issue. Communication and education rest at the center of the international effort to eradicate this ritual that creates staggering health and devastating social consequences for young Maasai women and their communities. Africa Schools of Kenya’s (ASK) is successfully tackling this challenge. In conjunction with the Maasai people living in Kenya, ASK created an Alternative Right of Passage (ARP) ceremony, following the traditional Maasai Emuratare, with the exception of FGM. In the eyes of their community, ARP graduates are recognized as women and are no longer married off at puberty. ASK is on the brink of a major expansion into all of Maasailand. What obstacles must be overcome as ASK expands to other African communities? How is cultural resonance maintained? Join us for a fascinating presentation by the founder and director of ASK, followed by a facilitated problem solving/working session that will explore these challenging issues of scalability and sustainability inherent in change. The event is free and open to the public. Please click here for more information and to RSVP.

Environment In Focus Film: Standing on Sacred Ground
Time: 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Description: Please join us at Antioch University Santa Barbara as Alexis Slutzky takes us on a journey with indigenous people of the Altai region in the Russian Republic and the Winnemem Wintu people in northern California, as they resist destruction of their sacred lands. In the film, you’ll see how traditional Altaians create their own mountain parks to rein in tourism and protect sacred sites. Outside their parks, they resist new threats from an oil pipeline. If built, it will pass through pristine World Heritage Sites. If the US Bureau of Reclamation enlarges Shasta Dam, the Winnemem Wintu will lose what little is left of their homeland – ceremonial grounds, burials, and old village sites will be flooded. The film is free and open to the public. Click here for more information.
