I partner with mission-driven organizations to create equitable and human-centered workplaces. This involves identifying disparities, redesigning systems with an equity lens, facilitating continuous learning, building relationships and trust, and ensuring accountability.
My approach to instructional design and facilitation is highly experiential and rooted in adult learning principles. Learners deepen their knowledge, awareness, and skills by engaging in multiple modalities: storytelling, simulations, discussions, videos, journaling, scenarios, role-plays, etc.
What clients are saying:
“Shilpa made us really think about how we would approach uncomfortable situations. It made it feel much more applicable.”
“The training was EXTREMELY valuable and helpful in making me more aware of my own biases and how I need to be not only aware of people’s stories, but need to take the time to listen to them as well. I walk away from this training with a greater knowledge, but also on a quest for digging deeper.”
“Wonderful workshop and very eye opening. Loved the mix of larger groups and small, intimate breakout sessions. This made us feel closer to our colleagues, building trust and partnership.”
“Shilpa is an amazing facilitator. She makes it easy to understand somewhat complex and uncomfortable topics; she’s extremely relatable and down to earth; she’s great at what she does!”
“I appreciated [Shilpa’s] ability to make complex social constructs more simplified and digestible. The examples used to describe each concept really helped ground the conversation.”
“The tone was incredibly powerful, creating the brave space for people to come forward. Shilpa has a wonderful way of explaining complex and difficult topics in an easy to understand and very positive way. It was fabulous.”
