In my signature talk, we explore how unconscious biases impact all of us and learn about the S.P.A.R.K. framework, which allows people to see the layers of complexity in equity work. We discover how the “Power C’s” catalyze transformative shifts in our leadership, and we talk about the importance of intentional Communication, Community-building, Conflict-management, Change-management, and Clarity (of vision/mission/values).  Lastly we reflect on what it means to show up with systemic awareness and intentional action–ALL in service of having maximal impact in our community. With love. For justice.

Feedback From My Audiences

Rachel was a speaker at my event in the summer of 2017. She is a PHENOMENAL speaker and facilitator and was the highlight of my conference. I personally was forever changed by her message and I know she is going to make massive improvements to our world with each stage that she steps on. I most definitely will be booking her again!

Rachel’s magic is that she unleashes her warmth and humor on even the most tender and tense of issues. By bringing her fully sparked humanity to all she does, she ignites the humanity in us. Rachel is a gift to us all!

Rachel Rosen is a unique maverick in the diversity and inclusion field because of how she incorporates intersectionality into her work. This is so important because in today’s world of increasing globalization and digital media, creating meaning connections and understanding how to be inclusive in multidimensional layers is a vital skill-set to have in order to succeed. Her talks and workshops are not only informational but they inspire action. I’d highly recommend her to any organization looking for a dynamic leader, speaker and changemaker. You won’t regret it.

Rachel is a fierce advocate for vulnerable children and families, a skilled speaker and coach, and a trusted and valued colleague. During her tenure at the National Equity Project, Rachel contributed to our knowledge and resource base in significant ways. She has a unique combination of leadership qualities and an entrepreneurial spirit. I could say much more about Rachel’s integrity, intellectual rigor, warm and generous presence, but I will leave it at that.

Rachel has a magnetic energy, drive, and unique perspective of the world that breaks down limited thinking and expands your capacity to do better, be better, and deliver better. She has amazing stage presence and whenever she speaks the room gets quiet, leans in, and gets the exact nugget of wisdom and practical strategy that they need to do something great. Rachel is an amazing speaker, workshop leader, and coach she has something incredibly unique that I’ve only seen in speakers who have graced the stages of TED, major Fortune 100 conferences, and keynotes that command audiences of 5,000+. She is of that caliber and so much more—if you get a chance to have her speak at your event make sure to highlight it on your website because its going to be the best speaker you hired all year!
