THE ARMAH INSTITUTE of EMOTIONAL JUSTICE
Providing education on emotionality in the context of race, gender and culture.
WHAT WE DO
AIEJ is the ARMAH INSTITUTE of EMOTIONAL JUSTICE.
We envision a global community in which emotions and emotionality are understood in the context of race and gender, thereby fostering greater harmony in human relationships and heightened productivity that improves the quality of life for all. Emotionality education expands our notion of culture.
WHAT WE DO
AIEJ offers education in emotionality and emotions in the context of race and gender. Where others allude to the world of money and finance when speaking of “economy,” AIEJ instead engages “the emotional economy,” recognizing that emotions and emotionality can hinder, harm or help when understood and employed as a strategy for individual and institutional strength and not a weapon to wound.
TRAINING: Our innovative, dynamic workshops, courses and consultancy explore how emotions and emotionality shape, shield, and strengthen how we lead, build, create, organize, heal, harm, and learn from and with each other, making them especially invaluable for institutions wishing to enhance their Diversity and Inclusion, Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives, team-building executives, human resource professionals, life coaches, social and racial justice organizations and all whose work relies on competency in race and gender cultures.
PROJECTS: Our projects engage the creative worlds of theatre, media, the power of technology, the visual dynamism of video, and the need for campaigns in order to communicate emotions and emotionality’s power to reimagine community, to reckon with resistance, to revolutionize structures, creating processes that enable and foster healing between peoples.
THOUGHT LEADERSHIP: We create language, develop ideas and connect them to topical issues in order to communicate emotionality’s power, and the need for Emotional Justice. These pieces are published globally. They shape and shift who we are, how we connect and engage, and how we reimagine our worlds. The writing is published globally; in Ghana, New York and London via essays, chapters published in books and books.
Rooted in global histories and their contemporary manifestations, our educational scope is the culmination of more than a decade’s work by AIEJ Founder and Executive Director Esther Armah, originator of the framework — and the term —'Emotional Justice’.
All of our workshops, courses and consulting services are offered globally via in-person and online formats. Workshops and courses may be customized for individual clients. All of our projects are conceived and created using creative tools and emotional justice concepts and language.
AIEJ is a global institute. We have done work in Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya, New York, Chicago, and London. Our aim is to equip you and your organization with the emotions and emotionality knowledge and tools to successfully engage culturally, creatively, communally and professionally with others. Initially we are targeting the following:
Academic institutions, for study abroad programs;
Corporations and arts institutions, for D&I training;
Corporations, for CSR programs;
International NGOs, for international staff placement
Our creative projects target community organizations, institutions and NGOs focused on justice issues.
We look forward to bringing our vision and workshops to your institution, city and nation.
