Meet the Keynote Speaker
Monique W. Morris, Ed.D.

We are excited and honored to announce Dr. Morris as our 2022 Community Resilience Conference Keynote Speaker!


Dr. Morris is an award-winning author and social justice scholar with three decades of experience in the areas of education, civil rights, juvenile and criminal justice. She is the President/CEO of Grantmakers for Girls of Color, a philanthropic collaborative that supports a world in which all girls and young women of color are healthy, safe, thriving, and fully empowered to dream and shape their desired reality on their terms, while dismantling structural barriers created by racism, sexism and ageism and other forms of oppression that prevent their full participation in our country’s future.


Dr. Morris has written dozens of articles, book chapters, and other publications on social justice issues and lectured widely on research, policies, and practices associated with improving juvenile/criminal justice, educational, and socioeconomic conditions for girls and women of color.
