AFA 2021 Excellence in Education Programming Award

Brave & Bold Dialogues: Diversity, Equity & Inclusion™ eLearning course

Dallas, TX, December 3, 2021 — AliveTek, Inc, a leader in eLearning development, and the Harbor Institute, an educational consulting firm based in Washington, DC, have won the prestigious Association of Fraternity & Sorority Advisors (AFA) 2021 Excellence in Educational Programming Award for their online course Brave & Bold Dialogues™: Diversity, Equity & Inclusion.

The AFA Excellence in Educational Programming Award recognizes new and innovative programs in learning or education. The award submission focused on initiatives that contribute to a greater understanding of diversity, social justice, and multiculturalism on a campus or within an organization. During a time where diversity, social justice, and multiculturalism are headline news, both AliveTek and the Harbor Institute are preparing the next generation of leaders with the capabilities and capacity to courageously and continuously address these critical issues.

Brave & Bold Dialogues™ is an engaging and interactive eLearning course that walks college students through real-life scenarios, increasing awareness and understanding. The course provides a four-step approach to becoming a more inclusive member of society: Be aware. Be considerate. Express understanding. Talk about it.

Brave & Bold Dialogues™ empowers students to lead discussions that promote diversity, equity, social justice, and multiculturalism.

“We are so proud of this course because it takes a complex topic that many shy away from and presents it in an engaging and easily-digestible way,” said Sandy Mills-Alford, President and CEO of AliveTek, Inc. “Using standard terminology and current campus-based scenarios, we invite each participant to look at the world through their unique purview. Learners are encouraged to think critically about how they interact with others and build their confidence to engage in dialogue that can lead to personal growth and progress.”

Rasheed Ali Cromwell, Esq., President of the Harbor Institute, added, “Our innovative approach empowers participants with a unique blend of foundational DEI concepts and historic context to provide a comprehensive perspective through a constructive and engaging platform. This powerful combination provides supportive spaces for participants to learn in a non-confrontational and non-combative environment.”
