From my membership in all of these groups I have learned that oppression and the intolerance of difference come in all shapes and sexes and colors and sexualities; and that among those of us who share the goals of liberation and a workable future for our children, there can be no hierarchies of oppression. -Audre Lorde
BLACK LIVES MATTER = There Is No Hierarchy Of Oppression
In today's society the work of diversity education is a must for all businesses and institutions. The core of my work as a therapist deals with the recognition and acceptance of the unique self. My work in anti-oppression work goes back to my time as an undergraduate student.
I lecture and provide workshops to businesses and community organizations. I work with the principal that there is no hierarchy of oppression. So I do not teach and work with single issue concepts to make organizations check boxes. I work with . This concept has been my guiding force for the past 25 years.
One or two day workshops on diversity available. Contact me for a sample agenda.
I have worked in South Korea, Cambodia, Romania, Spain, Saint Louis, New York City and Washington, DC, and for not-for-profits with two people and organizations as large as the federal government. No matter the size of your organization or the need asked for, I am confident I can provide a refreshing and unifying system of support. For more about my philosophy and the concepts that I run my workshops with, check out my Blog.
I have worked across many universities and fostered a unique sense of community and well being.
