 August Meeting Agenda

 

Description

In a world where action speaks louder than words, how do you ensure your organization walks the talk of diversity, equity and inclusion? Join Amanda and Laura, organizational equity & justice consultants, as they dive deep into the transformative realm of equity auditing, where insights meet action. Just as regular and continuous self-reflection is important for personal development, engaging in critical, in-depth, and meaningful analysis of our organizations is essential to keeping up with worker and community expectations of a commitment to equitable impact.

Amanda and Laura will spill the tea by revealing harmful workplace/school patterns that prevent revolutionary culture shifts, while also sharing proven systems-change practices, discovered through transformative equity analysis. Analysis can include policy/procedure/practice review (employee handbooks, hiring, recruitment, website accessibility, conflict and harm intervention), programmatic updates (curriculum, structure, community engagement support, (re)branding), environmental scans (social media/website, accessibility, gender inclusivity, representation, culturally relevant physical spaces and content), and mission/vision/values (re)development and/or alignment assessment.

Educator, Consultant, Speaker, & Team Lead for Social Responsibility Speaks, LLC
Founder & Lead Executive Officer (LEO) of Goodenough Consulting, LLC

Amanda Florence Garcia Goodenough (she/her) is a dedicated educator operating from a cultural humility framework to center and elevate historically marginalized voices, promote belongingness and mattering, disrupt structural inequities, and advance intersectional social and racial justice. She is currently the CEO & Founder of Goodenough Consulting and a Team Lead & Partner for Social Responsibility Speaks. Amanda is also a member of the Greater La Crosse Area Diversity Council’s (GLADC) Speakers Bureau, an independent contractor/facilitator for the La Crosse Area YWCA Racial Justice workshops, a cultural guide for the Waking Up White Collaborative and Creating a Healthier Multicultural Community initiative, and a board member for The Pump House Regional Arts Center.

Leaning on 20 years of professional experience in justice, equity, decolonization, and interconnectedness (JEDI) efforts, Amanda engages in systems-change work and strives to speak truth to power as an act of love and liberation.
