City Council Task Force to Effect Change and Action in the Area of Racial Equality in Lafayette

An important and powerful Town Hall on Racism and Discrimination moderated by our very own co-founder, Tiffany Hoang for the City of Lafayette City Council Task Force to Effect Change and Action. Take a moment and press play to hear the vulnerable stories of these Council members, and the Lafayette community.

Many cities and workplaces have been reaching out to us in light of Black Lives Matter. Some seeking training, others seeking support to hold space for meaningful and difficult conversations like these. Some are taking on policing, while others tackle mental health & homelessness, and others, systemic racism specifically.

This town hall reminds us that no matter what the issue is that we're trying to change, that change MUST begin with listening so that we can truly understand the landscape, depth, and impact of the exact problems and systems we are trying to dismantle.

To all the change agents out there (which is ALL of us) we salute you and we're with you!

Taking a Leap to Make a Difference: Tiffany & Tyrone's story

This Saturday, we hope you take a moment to take a step back, and take it all in! It's so easy to get caught in the day to day grind, and forget the bigger picture and remember the difference you are making everyday (...and to post on facebook!).

Please forgive us - we've been deep in the work growing our business and supporting our communities! But today, we're taking a moment to reflect on how far we've come :)

Our journey starting CircleUp Education continues to be an exciting, fulfilling, and limit pushing journey. Everyday we're asking ourselves how our communities are doing, how we are doing, and how we can improve what we do to enhance the well-being of our team, the communities we serve, and the people they impact on a daily basis.

Thank you, skysthelimit.org for your guidance and support along this journey, and thank you Accenture for funding organizations like Sky's the Limit/ YBUSA, and for this wonderful video feature!!

We are so proud to call Pyatok Architects our firsts! First Architecture Firm to be trained in Unconscious Bias, that is! As one of them said earlier on in the evening, "we are CircleUp's first [architecture firm], but probably won't be their last" :)

Thank you #Pyatokians for being such a fun group to work with. Your insights, experiences, and questions made this training experience like no other. We hope that you take the tools and self-awareness you gained from the training into not only your workplace, but also into the diverse communities you serve so passionately across the Bay Area.

See you all soon!

What a pleasure it was to spend our Tuesday evening training the City of Hayward - Government Mayor Halliday, City Council Members and Executive Team on Diversity & Discrimination, uncovering the challenges of hidden bias in local government! Your dedication to this work was both seen, felt, and experienced through your active engagement, authentic sharing, and deep reflection of how challenges related to Diversity not only impact your departments, but also City of Hayward residents.

We look forward to deepening our partnership with the City to extend this conversation throughout the departments and communities in #Hayward!

Last month, our co-founder Tiffany Hoang gave a keynote speech on #SocialEmotionalLearning to the 300 staff members at Pacifica School District. Tiffany shared her story as a young girl and her challenges growing up navigating the social, emotional landscape of being a first-generation Vietnamese American despite her "academic success" and achievements in school.

Although these challenges have ultimately shaped who she is today as a Young Female Entrepreneur, we can't help but imagine what other students like her, and unlike her, are going through in school. How different would learning be if all students (and adults) felt valued, seen, acknowledged and validated everyday? What if we each had the skills to manage our emotions, feelings and relationships in a healthy and authentic manner? We wonder...

Thank you to Superintendent, Wendy Tukloff and Associate Superintendent, Ray Avila for organizing such a powerful morning. We're excited to follow-up with Pacifica School District to see how their district-wide focus on SEL transforms the culture, climate, and relationships at its school sites this year!

Thank you Richmond Community Foundation for inviting our co-founder Tiffany Hoang to present at your Capacity Building Workshop Series yesterday! It was so much fun working with your grantees to reflect on the impact of Diversity and Equity in the workplace, and the communities you serve across Contra Costa County. There was so much wisdom coming out in the room, we didn't want it to end! Thank you, non-profits and RCF for the humbling and impactful work you do! We hope yesterday's message about "starting points" continues to percolate as you return to your communities today.

What an amazing preconference and 1st day of the National Conference on Community and Restorative Practices. Both Tiffany Hoang and Tyrone Botelho have spent the last 2 years planning the conference with the local committee. There are over 1300 passionate and inspiring people here from all over the planet, including 80+ youth and over 100 formerly incarcerated people.

The theme of the conference that the local committee came up with speaks volumes; Moving Restorative Justice From Margins To Center; We are the ones we've been waiting for.

Oh and the warriors decided to drop by the Marriott hotel to pay is a visit!

Yesterday afternoon, 5th grade teacher, Carrie Blake, and Co-founder of CircleUp Education, Tiffany Hoang, co-guided an amazing end-of-year Restorative Practices Team Building Circle that they designed to help students process the school year and transition into summer break. The students reflected on their high and low moments of the school year and created classroom agreements for the circle experience. It was such a pleasure working with Ms. Blake and her wonderful students.

It was such an honor to accept the "FACES of Entrepreneurship Award" from Senator Nancy Skinner and the California Association for Micro Enterprise Opportunity (CAMEO) yesterday! The FACES of Entrepreneurship award is given to businesses who have demonstrated growth, job creation and contributions to their community.

This award came as a huge surprise to us, and it was so so exciting to receive it! Thank you to Youth Business USA for nominating us and for all the work you do in supporting entrepreneurs and young adults in the Bay Area and beyond! We couldn't do it without your support and the support of our growing TEAM! We hope to continue serving our community, and creating an impact in areas that affect us most - Relationships, Diversity, Equity, and Conflict Resolution.

With so much gratitude,
Tiffany and Tyrone

A few weeks ago, we had the honor of facilitating the City of Fremont's first ever Police and Community Dialogue. Months of planning and preparation culminated into two deeply transformative dialogues between a 4 Fremont Police Officers and 8 Emerging Racial Equity Leaders. Together, these 12 community leaders put themselves out there in order to gain new insights and perspective with the hopes of addressing some of the biggest challenges impacting community policing and the diverse communities in Fremont.

Not every moment of this process was comfortable or easy. However, to see each person walk away with new appreciation, connections and relationship with one another, was beyond moving.

We want to commend each and every person for their courage and commitment to this process. Thank you for speaking your truth and opening your hearts and minds to hear and see new perspectives. It is only through bridging our worlds can we truly begin to make a change in our community.

-Tiffany Hoang& Tyrone Botelho

Have you met Vickie Sargent?! Vickie is the Restorative Climate Coordinator for Hayward Unified School District who we have been partnering with since 2015 to implement Restorative Practices at all the secondary schools in Hayward. Today, Vickie and our co-founder Tiffany Hoang put their hearts and minds together to facilitate a dynamic workshop at the conference for Elevating & Celebrating Effective Teachers & Teaching (ECET2) Bay Area. This year's conference focused on Equity and Leadership, and together, Tiffany and Vickie led teacher leaders through an insightful and thought provoking conversation on Equity and Restorative Practices in schools. The session received wonderful feedback from participants and we hope that the conversation about student starting points continues as teacher leaders return to their school community.

Thank you to all the dedicated teachers out there - we honor you!!
