DEI Council: Meet Kelita Johnson

Kelita Johnson

We are profiling each of our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Council members in each edition of the college's newsletter – In the KNOW. 

Meet Kelita Johnson, Academic Success Coordinator with the Center for Minority Excellence.

Q. What’s your ‘why’? Why did you join the DEI Council?
I joined the DEI council to assist in creating an inclusive environment and developing diversity and multicultural training for all faculty, staff, and students.

Q. What change do you hope to see?
The change I hope to see is simply stated in Dr. Martin Luther King’s Letter from Birmingham City Jail in 1963, “True peace is not merely the absence of tension: it is the presence of justice.”

Q. How can all faculty, staff, and students be a part of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at SLCC?
By creating a welcoming space/environment for all faculty, staff, and students to show up each day without fear of being their true selves.

Q. What words do you live by?
“Leap and the net will appear.” The concept of this phrase is that if you take a chance, take an action, whatever the consequences may be, you will not freefall. You will be caught in a net, possibly not the one you expected.
