Using Liberating Structures as a Tool for Self-Management
Presenter: Dorian L. Spears

Do you find yourself looking to engage colleagues in new and dynamic ways? Are you seeking to bring out the best in someone with great potential? If so, this session will deliver three tools to aid your delivery and more. Arrive prepared to take part in a fun and interactive discussion.

Participants will:

  • Become familiar with how to support a colleague in feeling heard, seen, and respected on a team.
  • Learn how to ask for what they need to successfully accomplish their work.
  • Learn how to approach critical and uncertain realities in the workplace.  


Dorian Spears believes that the solutions and brilliance to solve community challenges exist within residents who live there everyday.

As National Program Partnerships and Strategy Lead with the Gender Equality in Tech (GET) Cities initiative (seeded by Pivotal Ventures, a Melinda French Gates Company), Dorian leverages relationships to create systems change and better outcomes for marginalized genders in the Black, Brown, and Indigenous communities who currently work or desire a career in the technology sector.

In her recent role as Chief Partnerships Officer at Momentum Nonprofit Partners, Dorian built bridges across the sectors of government, business, higher education, and neighborhood leadership in the greater Memphis area to uplift what works while addressing community challenges. She also led an effort bringing together organizations on the journey of operationalizing equity, diversity, and inclusion in the workplace facilitated by Beloved Community called Equity at Work; Dorian also facilitates sessions around this topic. The pinnacle of her work with Momentum was serving as chair of the committee to host Michael McAfee and Angela Glover Blackwell, of PolicyLink as keynote speakers for the Equity Summit in partnership with The Vanderhaar Symposium at Christian Brothers University.

She is an alum of Leadership Tennessee NEXT Cohort 2, New Memphis Institute Fellows Program, and Leadership Memphis – Grassroots Program. She has earned her Certified Nonprofit Professional credential with the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance and is now a Standards for Excellence® Licensed Consultant.
