DEIB

My areas of focus within DEI are on inclusion, belonging, and equity and developing diversity heuristics. I also enjoy discussing my journey from Academia to DEIB, the principle of shared accountability, and discussing my Framework for Inclusive Excellence in the Workplace©. I also offer DEI-focused Affirmations/Meditations.

Race & Racial Identity

My research and teaching interests are generally on critical race theory and race and identity formation with an emphasis on transnational Blackness, race and the African political imaginary, Afropolitanism, Afrofeminism, and theories of race within contemporary African literature.

Developing Your

"Worth" Ethic

My Developing Your Worth Ethic workshop helps revitalize your employee's connection to their personal values which enables them to connect with your organization's core values in more meaningful ways.
