Your Conscious Content Calendar

Updated: Nov 21

Your #StayReady guide to days, weeks, and months to observe in your classroom, business, and life



I've compiled a list of days/weeks/months etc. that are observed across the interwebs. I used to share them every month with my *e-shimmies* subscribers and on my social media. They will now be housed here - with periodic updates.


As always, there is a both/and. They can be used to highlight and bring awareness to particular events in history as well as center communities that have faced countless hardships. They can be used as fun ways to celebrate things that may be magical and/or mundane. They have also been used in ways that are exploitative and deceptive marketing (i.e. DEI lite).


Multiple truths, y'all. I invite you to utilize these in ways that are aligned with your values as well as your clients/students/followers' needs. What does conscious content look like to you?


I have bolded those that are sexuality related (even though, to me, it's all connected). An asterisk (*) denotes that the exact times change from year to year. For example, Mother's Day in the US is the 2nd Sunday of May. In any case, a habit of fact checkin' never hurt nobody. Lastly, if you see a question mark (?) it means that I cannot find a reference point and/or origin.


Are there any I need to add/update? Please let me know.


Also, feel free to reference this for your content, bulletin boards, etc. and share with me! You can find my social media links here.


Subscribe to *E-Shimmies* for updates on what I got goin' on.


Have the day you need!
