Rachel helps her clients create an infrastructure for DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) with critical reflection & intentional action.
The essential question Rachel and S.P.A.R.K. aims to answer is this: How do we catalyze more courageous leaders to be intentional, culturally responsive, equitable, and adaptive in their approach–during such a time of uncertainty and transition?
Her hypothesis—after years of supporting educators, executives, and administrators across the country—rests on the deeply held belief that leaders are capable of solving their own problems, when they have the right conditions and strategic support. Her intentional support allows leaders and communities to align their vision, values, systems, and actions with intentionality–in order to have maximal impact with sustained, equitable results.
Rachel tends to support her clients around what she refers to as the Power C’s, which are the five, interconnected layers that make being a culturally conscious leader so complex. She supports her clients to strengthen and develop any one(s) of the following areas with intentionality:
- Clarity regarding having an inclusive vision, mission, values, and infrastructure
- Communicating with consciousness (strategizing on talking points, 1:1 conversations, etc.)
- Community-dynamics that are equitable, inclusive, and facilitated with intentionality
- Change-management strategy (for navigating big transitions and responding to critical incidences)
- Conflict-management systems in place, so the community invites divergent thinking, innovation, and anticipates that misunderstandings will occur on diverse teams
Rachel’s consulting approach involves these four intentional moves:
Rachel offers strategic support so her clients can sustain results, realize their visions, accomplish their goals with integrity and intentionality.
Truly including and honoring diverse perspectives in our systems requires that we look at three different layers intentionality so we can have maximal impact for all. Rachel invites her clients to explore content grounded in latest research on being systemically aware, inclusive, adaptive, and culturally conscious at every level.
With Intentional alignment and communication at every level, internally and externally, we are able to better understand both the root cause of equity challenges and the strategy for developing an infrastructure for inclusion.
Working together, we co-construct a scope of work that is aligned with the priorities and needs of your system, tending to the relational and technical dynamics. We’ll also make progress on your goals for inclusion and equity with a common language, aligned values and systems, and intentional action steps.
