Untether your Non-profit from White Supremacy Culture

 

As a consultant, I work with mission-driven non-profits to identify and remove manifestations of white supremacy culture from the organization’s internal operations and external programming.┬áBecause of the necessarily complex and multi-layered nature of racism, I believe the work of untethering a non-profit from its relationship to white dominance requires more than a one-off engagement. Check out the “Methods” below to learn more about the different ways in which I engage organizations.

Methods

 

Data Collection

I work with your team to excavate and organize quantitative and qualitative data related to inequity & exclusion within an organization.

 

Root Cause Analyses

Based on data collected related to operating manifestations of inequity, exclusion, and white supremacy culture, I facilitate root-cause-analyses sessions in order to help your team make concrete connections between theory & praxis, and big-picture & the granular.

 

Trainings & Workshops

I increase your team’s capacity to identify, contend with, move through, and undo the organization’s practices of white supremacy culture by creating and facilitating tailored educational engagements.


Systems & Processes Review

I support your team in understanding how your organization-wide systems (e.g. CRM, performance management, time-keeping, project management, etc.) and processes (e.g. hiring, inter-departmental requests, etc.) are inequitable or exclusive. I work with your team to recommend adjustments.


Executive Coaching

It can be challenging for executives to move through processes related to racial equity. I work with leaders who are interested in moving through defensiveness, complacency, and inertia in order to show up for racial justice within their organization. I do this by helping you identify your operational relationship to social and positional power, and then by offering compassionate but firm guidance in your pursuit to divest from white supremacy culture.
