Building Equitable Organizations: Institutionalizing Equity into our Processes and Structures

After years of experience in key leadership positions, I am able to lead organizations through a clear and defined process to clarify their organizational mission, mission design and the building and implementation of strategic plans. I connect organizations to their target social issues and build broad-based communities, constituencies, critical advocates and members to support their efforts. I specialize in infrastructure build to deliver market repositioning, rebranding, positive change and growth.

Outreach and Engagement of communities of color and immigrant communities

I firmly believe that nonprofits have to implement strategies that are informed by and designed responsively for the communities they serve. My focus has always been to creating mutually beneficial partnerships that are lasting and positive and, as such, I have built coalitions that have engaged highly diverse communities from the moment of conception to the planning and execution of sophisticated long-term strategies. I’ve built a strong reputation for uniting diverse stakeholders to co-create and achieve common goals and sustainable partnerships. I have lengthy experience integrating multi-stakeholders across a broad spectrum from corporate to grass roots advocates and social sector environments. I have consistently built memberships and mobilized communities to ensure organizational sustainability and relevance at the grass roots level.

Coalition Building and Strategic Partnerships

I have a 20 year track record in leadership roles in the non-profit field, delivering proven and repeatable growth to organizations through innovative revenue streams aligned with organizational mission and values. I lead development strategies that raise funds, public awareness and community partnership, strategically supporting an organization’s vision. I have significant experience in developing major gifts from foundations, individual donors and corporations purposefully connecting all programming with fundraising and donor engagement. I believe that fundraising is a key form of community organizing that allows donors to become deeply engaged in the organization. That very personal experience can transform both their philanthropy and their understanding of issues going forward.
