Who We Are
F.A.C.E. Race was founded by two PhDs in counseling psychology who are devoted to fostering anti-racist workplaces and communities.
F.A.C.E. Race Consulting LLC was founded in 2020 in response to the high demand for anti-racist trainings in the workplace after the unjust murders of Ahmaud Arbery, George Floyd, and Breonna Taylor. Independently the founders of F.A.C.E. Race have been working for over five years to address issues of race, racism, marginalization, and white supremacy in the workplace.
Our skills and training in de-escalation, communication, emotion regulation, empathy building, and action mean that we are best suited to do the necessary and challenging task of helping organizations foster anti-racism. Our approach focuses on working with groups of individuals to do deep self-reflection, acknowledge ways in which everyone is complicit in perpetuating systemic racism, address harm done to Black, Indigenous, and other People of Color, and co-create practices that foster a healthier and more productive work environment.
We have worked with students, faculty, staff and mental health clinicians within university counseling centers, corporations, community mental health facilities, state mental health facilities, and medical programs. We are equipped to work in a variety of settings and with a wide array of professions. We provide a multitude of consultation services and are willing to partner with your organization to meet your unique needs.
F.A.C.E. Race is an acronym for Fostering Anti-Racism Conversations on Equity and Race. Partner with us to FACE Race in your workplace or community. We offer leadership coaching, workshops, trainings, structured dialogues, and race-based first-aid. For more information, please see Services.
