On this virtual installment of Social Good Morning, we’ve invited UWM Masters of Sustainable Peacebuilding student, Victoria Ibiwoye, Founder and Director of OneAfricanChild Foundation. This is proudly part of Black History Month.

Social Good Morning is a talk series hosted by our very own Entrepreneur-in-Residence of Social Innovation, Mark Fairbanks. LEC invites one local social innovator per month to have a short interview with Mark and then an open-format discussion, fielding questions from the audience about their strategies and passions. Topics of conversation range from poverty to sustainability to inclusivity and beyond. Join us for this fantastic opportunity to hear from and chat with a Milwaukee community professional and forge meaningful connections with a multidisciplinary audience of faculty, community members, and students alike. Join us and learn more about what it takes to become a social innovator in Milwaukee.

Victoria Ibiwoye, Founder and Director of OneAfricanChild Foundation for Creative Learning, Youth Representative to the SDG-Education 2030 Steering Committee, to talk about addressing inequality in education, and the need for quality and inclusive education for all. Victoria has spoken at the United Nations, was named as 100 Most Influential Young Africans by the African Youth Awards in 2017 and 2018, was named as a Mandela Washington Fellow in 2019, and was the recipient of the Princess Diana Legacy Award for her contribution to education and youth development. Join us for an insightful discussion around inclusive education, calling on governments to enforce the right to education in national laws, and to learn more about Victoria’s contributions to inclusive and quality education.
