Fatima M. Smith: How can we build a consent culture with pop culture influence?
Welcome to episode # 110 of Fraternity Foodie! We have with us today Fatima M. Smith, who is a Speaker, Consultant, Facilitator, Survivor, Relentless Advocate, and Founder of FMS Speaks. Fatima works with individuals and organizations to provide education to move our community from unhealthy to healthy through discussion on relationships, race, privilege, oppression, communication, bystander intervention, domestic violence, sexual assault, intimate partner violence, & stalking. As a social worker, she has spent her career establishing inter and intra agency partnerships instrumental in transforming programming and service delivery models on the needs of clients in service provision.
We find out why Fatima chose George Mason University for her undergraduate experience, why Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Inc. was the right fit for her, why she ended up pursuing a Master of Social Work degree from VCU, her survivor story, what a solution focused, trauma-informed response looks like on campus, how we can use a racial justice lens in our work, how we can build a consent culture with pop culture influence, some practical strategies and real world examples of bystander intervention on college campuses, more information about Collective 365, and some of Fatima’s favorite restaurants in Richmond, Virginia. Enjoy!
