Leadership Consultant & Guru
The buck stops here! I work with organizations, leaders, and staff on how to get unstuck and become brave enough to make hard decisions and overcome the challenges that occur with organizational change; developing and implementing strategies on how to make DEI (diversity, equity and inclusiveness) part of the organizational fabric; fostering a culturally-competent work environment; and successfully introducing leadership transitions and succession.
Research, Audits & Evaluations
Whatever the issue (diversity, equity policies, sexual harassment, culture change, crisis managed, disaster recovery, re-accreditation), I can provide you with a research-based action plan to navigate a successful path forward. A few examples of the work I have completed include: diversity audits, program evaluations, gender policy research, and community engagement.
Immigration Asylum Expert Witness
“The judge agreed with your testimony, and my client was released the next day.” That comment from the attorney makes all the hard work worthwhile. Asylum cases are one aspect of the immigration crisis we now face that is often overlooked. For over two decades, I have written expert declarations aimed at getting people asylum status to remain in the United States. Often these are people who if they returned home would be subjected to enormous violence or death.
