Building Inclusive Churches, Schools and Workplaces
by promoting safety, civility and respect
I am dedicated to fostering mutual respect and bringing people together. Not for a “kumbaya” moment, but to genuinely appeal to our better nature. It is not about pointing fingers, shaming or blaming – but about informing, educating, challenging, and affirming.
“Culture” is “a set of behaviors and values that are learned and shared by a community.”
Many think culture is only race or ethnicity, but religion, sexual orientation, gender and political affiliation are also cultures.
I specialize in helping people identify their own cultural values and expression, then expanding that to an understanding of shared or differing cultures in their work, educational or religious environments. We are all susceptible to assumptions, stereotypes and biases. Too often, these lead to conflict, disrespect and misunderstanding. The key is to provide education, skills and strategies, to bring about positive changes – individually and collectively.

I am absolutely passionate about helping people build bridges across cultural differences. I have been conducting diversity and cross-cultural workshops and classes for more than 15 years.
We can learn to dialogue and work across perceived and real cultural differences, while still maintaining and respecting our own. Striking that balance does not often come naturally, but it can be taught – and my participants agree!
