On February 1, 2020, the 27th Annual Cherry Creek Diversity Conference was held at Cherry Creek High School, located in Greenwood Village, Colorado. The Diversity Conference exists to provide high school students various tools to assist in self empowerment. Held annually, in January or early February, high school students and supportive faculty advisors attend the Diversity Conference each year to learn about and celebrate diversity, but more importantly to be inspired to make a difference in their local schools and communities. Colorado Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Stapleton was proud to donate its time and knowledge by sending a crew of ladies, lead by BJJ Stapleton Jiu Jitsu Instructor Teri Stewart, to teach a ladies only introduction to self-defense (click here for a description of the seminar on the Diversity Conference website)!
The Diversity Conference website (click here) states:
“The conference’s goals have remained the same over the past 20+ years, though the conference itself changes dynamically each year under the guidance of our Executive Committee, a group of some thirty students and adults who volunteer their time and make all decisions regarding the conference:
Promote diversity and understanding within and among students attending Colorado’s public and private high schools; Focus on any issue that might impact a student’s ability to achieve academically or socially, both in and out of the school setting; Provide an opportunity for students from public and private, large and small, urban and rural schools to share ideas in a cooperative atmosphere; Establish a supportive network of students, faculty and administrators committed to carrying out these goals; and Empower participants to speak out or take action in their local schools and communities and increase tolerance and appreciation of diversity.”
Thank you to IBJJF Purple Belt World Champion Heather Westman and Blue Belts Lauren Farthing and Kate Stewart, for assisting as instructors, and head instructor Teri Stewart for sharing your knowledge at the Diversity Conference! You ladies rock! Brilliant!
