I work from the inside out to assist organizations in the creation of environments where people thrive, and where programs and services meet the needs of the people you serve.
I am committed to supporting my clients through the process of change, so you can see more, be more and go further – individually and collectively.
My approach is multi-faceted, and I operate from the inside out. It begins with getting to know you, and your organization.
First, I listen.
Then, I facilitate conversations and challenge you to see more.
I inspire connection.
And I guide and support you through the process of change.
This process includes consulting, assessment and reporting back, facilitated discussions, workshops, and activities.
I create customized solutions to fit your needs and the personality of your organization.
I come to your location(s) and work with small groups over time to raise awareness and help to create change from the inside out. Through interactive activities and discussion, I support belonging and connection and explore the dynamics of diversity, challenge bias and assumptions, and raise awareness about how we see and experience the world differently so that people can become allies in the process of change.
I do some education online, providing e-learning for the introduction of concepts so that we can use our time together more effectively.
Building belonging, connection, and awareness with inclusion in mind requires change – and change requires support.
The support I provide is customized to fit the personality and needs of your organization. Generally, this includes some version of the following:
- Increasing your understanding of Diversity and Inclusion and the link to engagement, productivity, relevant programming, innovation, and creativity.
- Assessing your environment, making recommendations and creating a strategy.
- Inspiring courageous leadership.
- Working with you on your vision and implementation.
