We provide support to educators to help them center the voices of those who have been marginalized in their school systems.
We provide history, framing, power analysis, identity development, empathetic motivation, and community accountability in the context of our educational system. This work is provided in the following ways:
RE•CENTER Consulting focuses on serving nonprofits, business, and philanthropy
RE·Center provides consulting and training services to organizations that seek to create a positive and inclusive working environment, engage productively with their communities, provide effective services to their diverse customers, and help move society forward toward racial equity and justice.
Our comprehensive approach will include assessment of the organization's current culture and climate as it relates to race and other "isms", training that will assist the organization to identify each individual's role in the development of the organization's culture, the creation of an "equity team" to plan out an organizational long-term program, and support and training for the actions of the equity team.
Other solutions and supports may look different, depending on the needs of the client, but most will include the basic elements depicted above.
