In 2020 the world (mostly America) is finally beginning to understand the reality of BIPOCs existence in this country. It’s finally clear the daily avenues we need to navigate at work and all aspects of our lives to exist. I wanted to be part of founding this space because I needed a venue to just be and not worry about filtering and editing who I am and what I say. I want to be part of creating a safe space for us by us.
Out in the world, I currently work with GRID Alternatives, an international leader that makes solar technology and job training accessible to underserved communities. At GRID, I am the Director of Equity, Inclusion & Diversity (EID) where I am working on an organization-wide EID strategy.
With over 20 years of experience as a program manager, qualitative evaluator, trainer and curriculum developer, much of my career has been spent collaborating with the nonprofit sector.
On the educational front, I have a Masters degree in Public Administration with an emphasis on Organizational Theory and City Planning and earned my Bachelors in Social Sciences with minors in Ethnic Studies and Psychology.
