Our solutions-based approach is to "call-in" leaders to realize their full potential to engage partners, members, stakeholders and staff of underrepresented identities, particularly gender diverse and racialized peoples.

ABOUT THE CONSULTANT
Naomi Gracechild (she/they) is a woman of Afro-Caribbean and European descent born and currently residing on unceded occupied territories of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh nations (colonially referred to as Vancouver, BC, Canada). She has lived and worked in various communities in BC, Alberta and Ontario and her professional background includes arts nonprofit, education, telecommunications, health care, human resources and hospitality.
Beyond tokenistic ideals of "diversity and inclusion", Naomi is a champion of healing and justice to create new paradigms of healthy, equitable and intersectional organizational cultures. As the founder of Euphony Works, she offers her inter-sectoral experience in both urban and rural communities to help clients gain a deeper understanding of socio-political dynamics in order to effectively address issues of injustice and collectively heal from wounds of systemic/structural racism and colonialism.
An interdisciplinary artist with an educational background in music, Naomi's visionary visual art practice is centered around narratives of women of the African diaspora. With a focus on visual storytelling through portraiture, she honors the power of art to heal communities, elevate consciousness, affect social change and document history.
Naomi's social venture, Melanin Rising Apparel, creates apparel, acessories and personal care products "for melanated people and the people who LOVE us". Melanin Rising lies on the intersections of art, fashion and social justice, centering and amplifying the creativity of people of the African Diaspora.
What Our Clients Say
"Naomi is exactly the kind of person you want consulting on your project. She understands that equitable transformation of any project or organization is a multifaceted process that requires nuance, care, and time, and that dismantling aged oppressive structures isn't something you can do overnight. She committed to helping us at every stage of our project and provided thorough analysis and clear direction, while having some fun along the way. "
