I offer customized organizational development consulting services with an emphasis on:

  • Fostering organizational alignment with vision, mission, values, and desired organizational ethics
  • Program planning and implementation
  • Program evaluation
  • Strategic planning
  • Team management
  • Long term community/constituent engagement
  • Collaboration development

I commit to deep change community processes and so we work only with people with whom I have established relationships of trust and respect based on the processes of change they have taken on in their own communities.

I draw from the following traditions to ground and inform our work with communities:

  • Indigenous circles process
  • Women of color theory
  • Integral diversity maturity
  • Systems thinking
  • Collaboration studies
  • Interdisciplinary research
  • Indigenist leadership
  • Complexity leadership

I have worked with nonprofit organizations, colleges and universities, hospitals, police departments, public schools, churches, and private businesses.  I primarily focus on building a discipline of being and doing in organizational life that brings together circle practice with anti-racist intersectional approaches to systems change.

Based on my professional experience, I believe that circles process can be effectively used in the following ways:

  • Conflict resolution between individuals, gangs, and ethnic and racialized groups
  • Build relationships between city governments and their constituents, in particular, those most disenfranchised
  • Strengthen neighborhoods as a way to decrease incidences of domestic, gang, and other neighborhood-level violence
  • Strengthen the effectiveness of community justice practices in partnerships with courts, other law enforcement, survivors of violence, and those who have caused harm
  • Address systemic racism and other forms of oppression in communities
  • Improve organizational management practices in order to increase staff retention, especially in organizations working to address community crisis
  • Develop and maintain cross sector collaborations
  • Develop systems change interventions

I seek to develop a powerful network of change makers who use circles to improve the lives of communities through cross sector collaborations.  I hope you will join me in this effort.
