CONSULTING FOR UNIVERSITIES, SCHOOL DISTRICTS, ORGANIZATIONS, AND CORPORATIONS.
I offer a variety of workshops that focus on equitable practices in the workplace such as specific activities, strategies and discussion starters that provide insight into the way we are socially constructed to view the world and the people with which we share space. I provide half day, full day and two day workshops customizable to your organization’s needs.
Seemingly small everyday acts that undercut a person’s sense of self-worth and belonging. We examine how what might seem like a small slight or insult is actually tied to a system of oppression. We learn how to recognize not only the microaggressive acts but the systems and biases that exacerbate them.
Implicit bias refers to the attitudes or stereotypes that affect our understanding, actions, and decisions in an unconscious manner. These biases, which encompass both favorable and unfavorable assessments, are activated involuntarily and without an individual’s awareness or intentional control. These biases are insidious because the perpetrator doesn’t realize they are drawing them from a bank of discrimination and systemic bias.
Race Based Conversations
We practice how to start having real conversations about race and racism. We examine how we can start to chronicle how our lives are affected by the racial history that pervades the division we have today.
Communication between members of different cultural groups (i.e. white people and people of color, men and women etc.) In my workshops, we look at how we might see a different perspective based on someone else’s experiences. We use storytelling and perspective taking approaches to enhance our empathic listening skills.
Based on mediation and emotional and physiological approaches, we explore how we can suspend our judgements and assumptions about what we think we know and listen to another person’s perspective. Based on the peacebuilding and yoga curriculum I created in Dallas schools, I take the curriculum to other organizations in need.
Racial & Gender Justice
We examine the intersections of how race and gender affect our daily lives.
