DOMANIQUE GRANT BIOGRAPHY

Domanique’s childhood consisted of navigating the socio-political systems of affordable housing, education, and statistics, that tried to define her narrative as a young black girl in Canada. Domanique was told at the age of six that she had a learning disability and would never make it through the education system. Raised by a single parent, in a downtown Toronto housing cooperative, Domanique also had to navigate the realities of growing up, during one of the city’s highest periods of gun violence, impacting racialized youth.

Gifted with determination, imagination, a passion for storytelling, and a mother that is a teacher, Domanique learned how to use tenacity, visualization, music, and theatre, to reshape her reality and create new narratives. She graduated high school and university with honors, where she transferred her passions in community development, wellness, and the arts into an honors double major in International Development and Theatre from York University. After being invited to work in Uganda, she would receive her first Humanitarian award at the age of 21, for developing arts-based education and wellness programming, that would help create access for children from underserved communities across Uganda, who did not have access to education.

Simultaneously, Domanique pursued her dream of becoming a singer/ songwriter, where she channeled her adversities into award-winning music and songwriting that she performed for the communities that she worked in.

Today Domanique’s award-winning music has been used to elevate some of the largest global movements of our time. In 2020 her single Till We See The Sun was named “the anthem of our time” by CTV national after, a clip of Domanique performing in the streets of Toronto during the lockdown, went viral, bringing together frontline workers from over 20 countries.

In 2020 Domanique founded Grant Creativity Inc. an award-winning social enterprise that uses entertainment and wellness programming to increase access for equity-seeking communities.

Domanique’s topics that include education, innovation and sustainability, mental health, women’s empowerment, affordable housing and diversity and inclusion. In 2023, Domanique shared the stage with keynote speakers; Grammy award-winning singer/songwriter Melanie Fiona, Global Head of Education and Lifestyle Vanessa Craft, and more.

how to build a vision that no one else can see.

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop SessionHalf Day TrainingFull Day Training
  • As early as she can remember Domanique had a vision for herself that no one understood. Yet she’s leveraged this vision as a woman in business to shatter glass ceilings and transform the expectations for young women in entertainment, while still in her 30’s by combining her interests in entertainment, entrepreneurship, and global development.

    Today, Domanique is an award-winning singer/ songwriter and the CEO of an award-winning social enterprise that uses entertainment and wellness to increase access for global communities. She became the president of two cooperative housing organizations while still in her 20s and represented over 45,000 members, prior to attaining her first humanitarian during university.

    So what does an artist, international development grad, and award-winning entrepreneur have to teach you about women’s empowerment and being a woman in business? Well for starters, we can’t wait for anyone to empower us, we need to invest in the vision that no one else understands and start with that.

    In this inspiring presentation, Domanique discusses lessons in adversity, leadership, and intersectionality, that are key to informing an equitable and sustainable vision for gender-diverse leadership and women in business.

how mindfulness, visualization, and neurological reprogramming saved my life.

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop SessionHalf Day TrainingFull Day Training
  • We have all been given a story that can define what we are capable of if we let it. In Domanique’s case, she used the power of the brain to redefine the statistics that said that she had a learning disability, would not make it beyond high school, and would become another black statistic in Canada. From selling out her first TEDx talk to receiving a humanitarian award, and leading an award-winning company.

    In this presentation, Domanique shares her story of tenacity, self-determination, and the key to imagining beyond the limitations of your postal code, despite the odds. Domanique delivers an inspiring discussion about the power of our minds; mastering our fears and navigating the systems built to keep us stuck in them.

    Domanique integrates interactive mindfulness exercises that teach audiences how to reprogram neurological pathways tied to fear, anxiety, and belief systems, that impact creative, mental health, and creative blocks. Using music, award-winning group visualization, and meditation exercises, this interactive presentation will help audiences create a sustainable vision for themselves while learning how to transform narratives and use self-manageable mental health tools to increase their longevity.

a new lens on privilege, intersectionality, and diversity in the workplace.

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop SessionHalf Day TrainingFull Day Training
  • One of Domanique’s most impactful lessons in diversity training was when she first arrived in Uganda on a University Visa at the age of 20. She quickly realized that most of what she learned in Canada about being a black woman and navigating privilege, would be challenged by the realities of East African systems of oppression, that would put her in a position of socio-economic power, given her Canadian visa. In this presentation, Domanique discusses the limitations of using a singular equity and diversity lens in our organizations and communities to discuss privilege. She discusses how understanding privilege, intersectionality, and compassion in new ways may be at the core of creating long term impact in our workplaces, communities, and homes.
