Consulting, Workshops, and Public Speaking

Diversity and Equity in Education

Education in this country is highly stratified. I am committed to creating greater equity, access, and understanding. To this end, I regularly work with community organizations, K-12 school districts, libraries, and higher education institutions to develop and implement training programs for faculty, staff, administrators, and community members. I have provided presentations, workshops, and consulting services on a variety of topics, such as: “Social Justice through Allyship,” “Doing Diversity While White,” “How to Talk about Race (and other difficult subjects),” and “‘The Time Is Always Ripe to Do Right: On the Legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Civil Rights Movement.”

University Administrative Experience and Academic Program Review

As a result of my administrative experience on a large college campus, I provide workshops, consulting services, and speaking engagements on topics such as, “Doing More with Less: Making the Most of Existing Resources,” “Building Interdisciplinary Collaborations,” and “The Public Humanities for the Public Good.” I also have experience with external program review, grant and fellowship application evaluation (including for the National Endowment for the Humanities), and other professional activities.

Writing and Editing

I also have extensive professional experience in professional writing and editing for both academic and non-academic audiences, in print and online.
