I am Chris Carr - an equity and diversity consultant, coach, and speaker. The purpose of my work is to re-humanize and empower every employee to bring their authentic best to the workplace. My work is not performative and it's not a checklist of what to say in order to absolve anyone of responsibility. It's a simple concept, that has been proven statistically - the more diverse and representative a company is, the more likely it will succeed. Let's get there. My method is built on analysis of hegemony, power and oppression, and the influence of these phenomena on social and cultural dynamics. My work is not about politics.. it is about people and history. For the past 20 years, I have been building more equitable spaces in governmental organizations, academic institutions, and private businesses - IE: the introduction of EEO, title VII and title IX for Howard University’s General Counsel, educating the pre-IPO 400-people team at BarkBox.
