Dr. Erikca Brown
Dr. Erikca Brown is an Equity & Education Consultant who works with organizations, institutions, and communities to build cultural competency and disrupt injustices to advance racial equity through capacity building. Dr. Brown's goal as a consultant is to create equitable and inclusive environments that provide access to all, specifically traditionally marginalized people groups.
Dr. Brown believes equity work is non-negotiable and must be embedded within the very fabric of the organization, institution, school, and/or district. Working collaboratively with shareholders (faculty, staff, administrators, teachers, employees, and community members), Dr. Brown uses high-impact practices, grounded in theoretical frameworks that center the affirmation of the dignity and respect for the complexity of the intersectionality of individuals' identities, with the goal of equity, access, inclusion, and diversity.
By tackling complex, intrapersonal, interpersonal, and systemic issues through an equity lens, Dr. Brown supports shareholders in the investigation of covert and overt racism, increasing awareness of explicit v. implicit bias, and delving into the intent and impact of micro-aggressions, as well as examining the ways in which non-minority group members can leverage their privilege to be an advocate to serve as an ally for marginalized groups. It is through these processes Dr. Brown will assist and promote the growth and success of diverse populations, within organizations and institutions.
