SERVICES

Workshops and Trainings

I provide workshops and trainings that range from 90 minutes to multi-day retreats. I have worked with audiences ranging from undergraduate and graduate students to professional staff and faculty in higher education settings. I work closely with the organization to assess the needs of the audience and create specific learning outcomes to best serve the needs of the organization. I use a mix of lecture, small and large group dialogue, personal reflection, media, and artistic expression to engage the audience in meaningful learning and building capacity for social change.

 

            Possible Topics Include:

  • Exploring Manhood and Defining Healthy Masculinities from a Pro-Feminist Framework

  • Empowering Men of Color on College Campuses

  • Dialogue Skill Development to Engage Difference and Create Change

  • Social Justice Theory to Lived Experience: Examining Privilege and Marginalization 

  • Race and Racism in Higher Education

  • Allyship as a Verb and not a Noun

Organizational and Leadership Consulting

As a trained StrengthsFinder facilitator I provide individual and team consulting that combines the positive psychology approach of Gallup’s Strengthsfinder (http://www.strengthsfinder.com/home.aspx) with Critical Race Theory frameworks of Community Cultural Wealth (Yosso, 2005) and Critical Hope (Duncan-Andrade, 2009) to empower clients to be agents of positive change in education. 

Keynotes/Speaking Engagements

As a speaker, I engage the audience by combining conceptual frameworks with personal storytelling to challenge the participants to think deeper about their own stories, gain new knowledge about social justice issues, and leave inspired to develop the skills necessary to create change. Keynotes can range from 15 minutes to 45 minutes and the content will be tailored specifically to the themes of the event.
