Gender Identity Expert Consulting
I want to be a thought-partner with your team and support you in making the work environment a place where everyone wants to be without question; where Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Accessibility, and Belonging+ (DEIAB+) are the anchors for the working community. This is not easy work and it takes diligence, mindfulness, and a collective willingness to embrace the desire to change. But change is not enough. We must look deeply into the root causes of systemic and structural issues, unpack and challenge them, and then envision the direction you want your organization to go. It is not enough to make change, we must work to sustain changes that can and will lead to broad-scale transformation. This process of transformation is centered in the Social Justice Framework of Miller & Kirkland (2012), which situates work as Reflective, Change-Oriented, and Solutions-based.
I offer tailored professional development, academic coaching, and technical support that leverages, strengthens, and builds capacities for individuals and groups to frame understanding, relational-development, and support about gender identity in any context through anti-bias, prejudice reduction, and equity-centered practices within curriculum, pedagogy, and in local, state, and national policies.
Together, we can decide what is the best path forward for your organization’s needs and goals.
