We explore how racial dominance and racialized trauma and stress impact organizations and
create strategies for social change
ABOUT CHERIE

 

The work of social change for me requires two things. First, whether coaching service providers, consulting with organizations, teaching college students, or facilitating workshops, integrity to professional and personal values is critical. At the most basic level, this means that in every interaction, maintaining and honoring the humanity and dignity in all persons is non-negotiable for me. The second is that I see my work of social change through examining dominance and resistance as liberating! For me this sacred work draws in my curiosity and is exciting, hopeful, and inspiring!

ABOUT PARADOX

 

The mission of Paradox is to create social change within helping professions, organizations and communities that make individuals, families, communities, and workplaces more humanizing. Paradox expertise centers on racialized dominance and trauma, how they manifest in our social interactions, thoughts, and bodies, and then show up in organizations. Services support the internal work of racial justice and we journey with you to create practices that support transformational social change.
