Justice, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Specialist
I get it. You keep having the same conversations. You've been to equity workshops. You truly appreciate the value of a talented and diverse workforce, but your company isn't there yet. You're doing "all the right things." But you aren't getting results. Or worse, you're experiencing the churn... skilled new hires come on board but don't stay long. Your team's creativity and productivity have hit a plateau.
You envision your company as a place where inclusion is embraced... where people are excited and willing to show up...
as their best selves...
bringing their best ideas...
doing their best work... FREELY.
I can help. Together we can eliminate the unproductive habits and behaviors that impede results. Better yet, we'll replace them with new perspectives and ways of operating.
Equity, diversity and inclusion work is challenging. I won't lie. It won't be easy, but with me, you won't be abandoned. The change that is possible is absolutely WORTH IT!
Recognize the existing barriers to building a diverse and inclusive teams and discover the process to move beyond them.

Melia's work on our recent board retreat was phenomenal- her session design and facilitation were thoughtful, responsive, heart-felt, and deeply grounded in activating the goals we set together. I had a wonderful experience working with her and very much hope to do so again!
