She is an expert trainer, facilitator and keynote speaker. 

    Carmen knows first-hand how transformative it can be when people get serious about confronting racism, sexism and the other isms and schisms that divide us in the workplace and community. Informed by her work in civil rights, Carmen is dedicated to working with world changers – organizations and leaders – who are serious about making progress in the area of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI). “As a country, we don’t necessarily do a good job talking about racial issues. It’s hard. It challenges everyone to look at themselves and the systems of oppression that plague us. And, if we can’t bring ourselves to talk about it, then it is doubtful that we’ll do anything about it”, she says. 

    Through her coaching, facilitation and consulting, she helps those who are committed to establishing an environment or culture where individuals can succeed, grow and thrive regardless of race, ethnicity, identity or gender. Whether at the beginning of their journey or in the midst of a full blown crisis, Carmen steps into the fire with you.

In addition, she can often be found facilitating workshops on DEI, racial equity, unconscious bias and managing racial conflict in organizations. Clients appreciate how she manages these sensitive conversations with finesse and deep respect for the life experiences that all participants bring to the table. Consequently, Carmen has been honored to do this work not only with the Black and White but also, Asian, Asian American, Native American and Latino communities. 

    Her passion is integrating coaching, facilitation and training to call upon the giftedness and greatness in others who work in the nonprofit sector. 

    Specifically, her work is aimed at helping: 

    • Create an awareness, deepen their understanding, then moving to corrective action 

    • Organizations to fulfill their missions 

    • Organizations to deliver greater service to the community 

    • Organizations to raise more money 

    • Boards and staff to step into their power, calling and responsibility. 

    • Organizations to develop systems and processes, with built-in accountability that lead to success and sustainability. 

    Carmen is also the creator of Uncovering and Confronting Racism: Laying the Foundation for Transformative Change, a program designed to help organizations in their equity and inclusion work. Her work with CEOs, boards of directors and teams has earned her the reputation of peaceful gatekeeper and master facilitator. 

    Carmen is also a Standards for Excellence ® Institute licensed consultant. She has served as a member of the Ethics Committee at the Standards for Excellence Institute and is a professional coach certified by Coaching for Transformation (accredited by the International Coaching Federation).
