Urban Equity Consulting is the very definition of who I am personally and professionally. My mission statement and values define who I am and where I have been.
I grew up in a mixed ethnicity, lower income family in the Lawrence Heights neighbourhood—a social housing community and in co-op housing in suburban Toronto. After 25 years of working with Canadian and international communities, and seeing that the current systems were not working for residents and employees from marginalized communities, something clicked! I knew what needed to be done, but that also required organizational leadership, culture, and systemic change. With my passion for innovation and advancing equity, I wanted to be a part of the solution.
I wanted to give back to marginalized and racialized communities and support progress. That’s how Urban Equity Consulting was born. There is room to understand social justice within the intersection of equity. I listen to your stories and understand your lived experiences so that we can make organizations more equitable, inclusive and have a sense of belonging.
