People and organizations on the frontlines of dismantling systemic racism and eradicating poverty are committed, selfless, and passionate. Unlike change agents in the private sector, frontline social change agents receive little to no on-going development and support. Their development/education is often sporadic and too late, resulting in burn-out, poor results, and failed causes.
change leaders, providing real-time coaching and feedback. Changing the systems, power dynamics, and practices that preserve inequity requires change agents with the capacity and leadership skills to organize, mobilize, and sustain strategic action. The likelihood of change initiatives succeeding is significantly improved when their leaders have the support and tools needed to take on systemic racism, inequality, and resistance.

Social change agents: focus on societal issues, injustice, systemic racism, housing, economic, healthcare, education disparities, food insecurity, political campaigns, human rights, and more.
Organizational change agents: work on improving processes and culture within a company or organization. I help profit and non-profit organizations incorporate an equity lens into their organizational change and development practices.
“I had the pleasure of working with John as he was a consultant to my organization when we were implementing a new program in a large healthcare system. He was very supportive to all members of the team at different levels of the organization, as we were working to get buy-in to get the program off the ground. He has excellent group facilitation skills when we had all-day training sessions. He not only ensured the sessions fit our specific needs, but he also co-facilitated and kept us all engaged the entire time. My peers’ feedback was unanimous in terms of the value derived from the days they spent in training.”
