Everyone is at a different starting point on the journey to Justice, Equity, Decolonization and Inclusion (JEDI).
We meet you where you’re at, offering a variety of services tailored to your needs.
I offer keynote speeches and seminars that inspire audiences to see the world differently. As people understand their inherent biases and systemic discrimination, I share practical tools and action steps to realize a better future.

Preview an excerpt of my Decolonizing Business and Work keynote in this video:
Inclusive organizations understand that caring mentors are a critical factor to employee success. But it doesn’t help if the employee can’t relate to their assigned mentor (often a White man or woman.)
I understand the impact of Asian (Chinese) culture and female gender norms on Asian women leaders, because I am one. These are important parts of our identity that are repressed by corporate North American workplaces.
My coaching program helps Asian women find their authentic voices and succeed on their own terms. (This program is open to both organizations and individual Asian women seeking personal coaching.)
Asian Women Leaders
for Adaptive JEDI Change
Have you ever committed to do something that you know is good for you – like eating healthier, saving more money, or exercising – but failed to follow through? Despite being deeply motivated and well-educated on its benefits – you still can’t change your behaviour in any lasting way.
It’s clear that just knowing what to do and why to do it, doesn’t mean you'll actually do it. When it comes to JEDI, what's missing is how to deal with the (very normal) discomfort, resistance and even fear about the inevitable changes. The emotional response, especially from senior leaders who are in positions of power, is not “fragility”; it’s normal human emotion.
1:1 coaching can fill this gap. Using the proven Immunity to Change model, I provide a safe, non-judgmental space for you to:
Debrief and process what you're learning and experiencing from technical JEDI initiatives
Respond honestly to your reactions and emotions about these experiences
Ask questions you may not want to ask in a group setting (e.g. training, especially in front of their subordinates)
Identify the personal fears, beliefs and assumptions that are blocking or enabling your engagement in JEDI change
If this sounds helpful to you, please email me to request me as your JEDI Coach, or book a free exploratory call.

Justice, Equity, Decolonization and Inclusion (JEDI) is about people change as well as systems change. The most successful JEDI strategies involve continuous education and awareness.
I facilitate workshops, seminars, and roundtable discussions to change people's lenses and see from different perspectives. With the foundations of empathy, circular economics and intercultural diversity, we explore topics such as:
Decolonizing Corporate Canada and the role of #Indigenomics
Recruiting and retaining talent effectively and inclusively
Mental health, ableism and episodic disabilities
The culture of white supremacy

How can non-Indigenous people in corporate Canada respond to the atrocities of residential schools? What is UNDRIP, and how does it translate into a reconciliation framework? What would it look like to bring Truth and Reconciliation into company policies and operations?
For the first ever National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, we explored possible answers to these questions, with a reminder of why truth and reconciliation are necessary.
