As an educator, consultant, and coach, I continue to lead with my values--most prominently justice. While I am able to apply my skills and experience in a variety of ways, as you can see by the examples on this page, the underlying message is justice and liberation.  

Chapter One: Black Women's Stories

Dr. Raedell hosted a "sold out" conversation featuring Black Femme voices. There was a panel featuring audience Qs, a Release Bowl experience, and open mic/free expression circle. The audience was diverse but the only voices you heard were Black women.

Women in Public Finance (Talk)

From the Event Description

In this Talk: Dr. Raedell illuminates the reality of racism through sharing anecdotes and provides tools to help participants think about their own stories in light of racial identity development and take a vulnerable look at where they need to grow and develop understanding of racial injustice.  The outcome is a deepened understanding of racial justice and of one’s own personal growth areas and position on challenging racial injustice.

In 2020 a lot of the world woke up/opened their eyes further to the everyday realities of Black folx, Latinx/Hispanic immigrants, and other People of Color. More people are realizing that being “not racist” is not the same as being “antiracist,” and that being “not racist” isn’t enough. I hope the stories, events, and resources I share will aid you on your journey to becoming and being antiracist.
