Our team builds culturally responsive strategies for staff, board, and volunteers to tell your story and share your impact from concept to completion.</p> <p style="font-weight: 400;">Rachel has a Master’s in Nonprofit Management from Regis University and has served in development and executive director roles for a variety of arts and social service organizations. She also served in the U.S. Peace Corps in Namibia from 2009-2011.</p> <p style="font-weight: 400;">Rachel uses her understanding of DEIA practices to build resources and training materials for nonprofits to begin to change their beliefs, patterns, and actions that may harm staff, participants, and community members. Her workshops prioritize 1) acknowledging the problems that exist in primarily White-led nonprofit spaces, 2) providing insight how unequitable power structures effect numerous and intersecting identities (e.g., gender sexuality, cultural, racial, religious, ability, etc.), and 3) engaging with participants to work toward a solution that fits their organization’s unique needs.</p> <p style="font-weight: 400;">In her spare time, Rachel is an executive board member of Association of Philanthropic Counsel (APC) and a local activist with grassroots movements in Washington D.C. and Richmond.</p> <hr> <!-- End Official Events, Begin Member Led Events --> <h1 class="mc-toc-title" style="text-align:center"><a href="http://www.rpcvw.org/events">Member-Led Events</a></h1> <br><br> <h2 class="mc-toc-title" style="text-align:center"><a href="https://www.rpcvw.org/9083/pcafpd_celebrates_the_60th_anniversary_of_peace_corps_philippines">PCAFPD Celebrates the 60th Anniversary of Peace Corps Philippines</a></h2> <h4 style="text-align:center">Sunday, September 26 - 02:00 PM </h4> <p style="text-align: center; margin: 2rem 0;"><a style="display: inline-block; padding: 14px 32px; background: #cd3c48; border-radius: 4px; font-weight: normal; letter-spacing: 1px; font-size: 20px; line-height: 26px; color: white; text-decoration: none;" title="Click here to RSVP" href="https://www.rpcvw.org/9083/pcafpd_celebrates_the_60th_anniversary_of_peace_corps_philippines" target="_blank">Details/RSVP</a></p> <h3 style="text-align:center"><a href="http://maps.google.com/maps?q=1101+First+St+NE%2C+Washington%2C+DC+20002%2C+United+States">WunderGarten</a></h3> <p><span>The Peace Corps Alumni Foundation for Philippine Development (PCAFPD) invites you to a family friendly event to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Peace Corps Philippines.
