KEY FEATURES OF MY SESSIONS:
SOCIAL JUSTICE LENS
My engagements acknowledge our realistic starting points: our beliefs around race, gender, and hierarchies (and colonialism and other related systems) are deeply embedded in each of us and these beliefs impact how we view mental health and well-being and how we (under)value ourselves and each other. My goal is not only for participants to gain awareness and knowledge, but to change behaviors to better support themselves and our diverse communities.
To change behaviors, I use science and compassion. Because biased behaviors are not necessarily in our awareness, I often incorporate scientific studies on how implicit biases impede our growth. And uniquely, I use scientific theories of behavior change and evidence-based methods for learning, including modeling and experiential and interactive activities (we can’t learn to ride a bike from an instruction manual). And I do this all using a social justice framework to ensure marginalized voices are centered.
Bottom line, my ultimate goal of behavior change looks like folks better understanding and using anti-racist and anti-oppressive skills. This includes underrepresented folx prioritizing their own well-being and mental health. If I support anyone's journey in this direction, I sleep better at night.

How do I know what my team needs?
Here are some questions to ask yourselves to help determine what you all are looking for from a consultant.
Who is your audience? More specifically, is it a specific community (e.g., an employee resource group)? How much awareness of this topic do they already have? Have they been presented with this type of workshop/engagement before, and if so, how did it land?
Do you want a workshop to be more facilitation-of-group-discussion or teaching/information-dissemination or a mix of both? If you want a mix, what percentage do you want of discussion vs. teaching?
Do you want a single speaker engagement (i.e., one 1-hour workshop) or a series of engagements?
Did your intended audience request this work? How do you know? Were systematic surveys conducted? How were pulse checks conducted?
Logistics: timelines and scheduling, length of engagement, compensation/budget, size of your audience, virtual or in-person engagement, travel costs, etc.
What is your goal of this engagement? In other words, what is your ideal outcome after the engagement is over? How will you know it was worth it?
