Fatima Dainkeh

2021 Speaker

FATIMA DAINKEH is the learning & development manager for She+ Geeks Out, specializing in topics about racism, sexism, and the intersectionality of social identities. Dainkeh has facilitated conversations and conducted trainings with leaders and members of schools, organizations, and companies to help raise equity consciousness, while also providing knowledge, tips, and strategies to help support institutional change. As a facilitator who believes in the power of sharing our stories, Dainkeh uses storytelling as a platform for individuals and groups to connect with one another. This form of facilitation has led Dainkeh to co-produce a short film and launch a photo story project about the experience of Black Mothers in Boston and beyond. She believes that things can shift between individuals or within an institution when people can begin to connect and understand each other. Dainkeh received her MPH in community assessment, program design, implementation and evaluation (CAPDIE) and maternal and child health from Boston University School of Public Health, and earned her BA in religious studies and anthropology from St. Mary’s College of Maryland. In her free time, she is a storyteller and photographer. @shegeeksout
