Consulting, Training & Professional Development:
Institutions and Organizations
Moving beyond diversity, equity and inclusion, our training framework seeks to situate intersectionality both as a methodology and approach. The study of intersectionality seeks to understand the multiple and overlapping ways in which various biological, social, and cultural categories intersect, contributing to the perpetration of social inequality. Rooted in Critical Race Theory, legal scholar Kimberle Crenshaw outlines the understanding of intersecting identities as a framework for explaining, and ultimately creating a blueprint for us to dismantle the matrix of oppression.
As a consulting group, Sankofa Circle provides culturally relevant strategies for a diverse client base of institutions an organizations by producing conversations, programming, training, and events that speak to the most marginalized voices of our constituency. Overall, the foundational thrust of our DEII work is centered upon building relationships across lines of difference - between institutions and the communities in which they serve - in pursuit of a common goal: liberation.
