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.

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.
