I am passionate about helping you dismantle structural racism and create impactful change. That’s why I created the Racial Equity Bootcamp.

I have seen many leaders struggle to make real progress with DEI, simply because they didn’t know how to address the “elephant in the room,” racial inequity.

Let’s stop thinking of DEI as a program or initiative, but as a way of doing business.

I would love to hear about the challenges you face, and help you decide if the Racial Equity Bootcamp is for you.

DEI is baked into everything we do

We don’t view DEI as a separate initiative, but a way of operating across all aspects of an organization.


"These issues are a particular challenge in the nonprofit sector, especially for leaders of color where we are faced with managing organizations with limited resources. Having someone who can help you navigate in this environment and who understands the challenges is magic."

Diane Bell-McKoy

"Tawana's passion for helping people uncover their biases in a non-confrontational way made it possible for us to bridge the gap between where our DEI efforts currently are today and where we desire them to be in the future."
