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
Long term community/constituent engagement
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
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.
