SUPPORT IN CRISIS RESPONSE
I can help you navigate this time of crisis. The twin crises of the COVID-19 pandemic and the killing of George Floyd and its aftermath have lifted the social and economic disparities faced by low-income communities and people of color into sharp focus.
Non-profit organizations, for-profit companies and government agencies alike are faced with helping affected people weather the public health and economic storm and prepare for recovery when it comes. These same stakeholders increasingly recognize the imperative to do better in terms of staff and leadership diversity, equity and inclusion. As one who has dedicated his career to these issues, I am eager and well-equipped to help your organization plan for success in the post-COVID world and to develop a plan to create a more diverse, equitable and inclusive work place.
