Special tribute to U1R corporate sponsor
Meet Dr. Dorothea Ivey our dynamic 2018 keynote speaker! Dr. Ivey is no stranger to poverty and has acquired a philosophy of helping organizations and the public to help combat poverty. This philosophy includes a strategy related to wholeness and fragmentation where one considers all parts of a whole to discover underlying causes of poverty. Dr. Ivey recognizes that it is the grace and mercy of God and of community supporters that helps families and individuals become self-sufficient from impoverished statuses. She earned a Bachelor in Human Services and a Bachelor in Education & Nonprofit Administration from the University of North Texas at Dallas. She earned a Master in Social Work and a Master in Public Administration along with a Graduate Certificate in Urban Nonprofit Management from the University of Texas at Arlington. Dorothea has also worked as an early childhood educator for 13 years and knows that it takes generational perspectives to evaluate impoverished oppression and value self-sufficiency.
