Where can I find your work?
My signature pieces are shared via my blog, eStore, and exclusive content space, Salt Box (see links in the navigation bar above.) I also share content on LinkedIn via my personal and company profiles.
For which forms of discrimination do you advocate?
All of them.
Intersectionality makes it impossible to call out one form of discrimination without knowing the others. Due to my identities, I have lived experiences that inform my writing related to sexism and anti-Black racism; however, I am continually self-educating personally and professionally to best serve the needs of all people who face isms.
What Are The Equity Education Workshops That You Provide?
The Foundations of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI):
Empowering your staff to challenge and examine discrimination starts with education. These two engaging and interactive workshops provide foundational knowledge participants can apply to be a part of the solution.
Words Carry Weight: An Examination of Workplace Language & Discrimination.
By: Kimberley John-Morgan.
This three-hour session examines the harm caused by words and phrases normalized across the workforce. Through learning where and how to identify discriminatory language, staff at all levels can effectively become everyday allies in support of establishing more inclusive spaces.
By: McLean Consulting Group.
This three-hour session gives allies (those who want to help) the information, perspectives, and resources to start supporting positive change informed by the Truth and Reconciliation Calls to Action (TRC) and the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People (UNDRIP).
These workshops can be delivered virtually or in person, and you can choose to spend a day with us to include both workshops or book them separately. We tailor our content to your unique needs while ensuring that critical learning outcomes are covered.
The Global Majority Career Coaching Series:
In the years since the murder of George Floyd, much DEI training has centered the education of white staff and leaders about how they can #DoBetter. However, what support is being offered to non-white staff? While aspiring allies learn how to move beyond listening and learning, Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour continue to endure harm. To address the issues rife within our shared workforce, I offer a workshop series to support the historically excluded and systemically underpaid:
1. Boundaries: Engaging in DEI Education Without Sharing Lived Experiences.
2. Navigating Unconscious Waters: How to Address Everyday Discrimination @ Work.
3. Common Ground: How Discrimination Harms Different Groups Similarly.

Who is your favourite author?
I have a deep appreciation for a lot of authors across all genres. However, the author who has taught me the most about the process of writing is Toni Morrison. One of her quotes that I keep top of mind is:
"I'm gonna stay out here on the margin and let the centre look for me."
My worldview and approach to advocacy have consistently challenged the status quo and were not at home in mainstream settings. This positioning was initially circumstantial has now evolved to be by design.
