Let me introduce myself
I add spark and momentum to your inclusion and equity work.
Getting you started, unstuck or revved up about your next phase of work is my superpower. My key message is practice makes progress, and my focus is helping leaders, staff teams and boards to build sustainable, meaningful and joyful equity practices that result in stronger teams, and more inclusive service, program and product design.
With 20 years of experience focused on integrating equity, inclusion, and intersectionality practice into workplace cultures and programs, I currently support a range of organizations including associations, foundations, multi-service non-profits, and academic institutions.
I’m proud of my Trinidadian heritage and often return to my second home for rejuvenation and inspiration. When I’m not collaborating with clients, you’ll find me at the dojo, practicing for my third degree black belt.
Here's How I Can Help
Chanel is an exceptional thinker, trainer and facilitator. My organization partnered with Chanel on the design and delivery of intersectional gender analysis for program design. Participants were very diverse including staff from different global regions, and with varying levels of prior knowledge of the subject. Chanel was very responsive to the challenges of facilitating learning across diverse groups, actively listened, and made adjustments based on participant feedback. The sessions were insightful, carefully tailored to our needs, and included relevant examples. Chanel’s warmth and joyful presence lightens up the room, making the whole environment much more conducive for participation and learning. I strongly recommend working with Chanel on all your gender analysis needs!
