diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice consulting

$75 per 5000 words

scheduled in 5000 word increments

Language changes, and so does our best understanding of humanity – but old habits die hard! You want to do better, and I can help. Send me your documents, websites under construction, or general in-person scripts and I’ll close edit for up-to-date language that means what you’re trying to say. If practicing conversational use, we will schedule a 30 minute video or phone call after I review your needs by email. My areas of focus are gender-expansive & inclusive language, but I’m happy to consult with any work focused on including all as equal partners.
