With over 15 years of experience working in the diversity and social justice training field, I can create workshops, seminars and retreats that enable your team to move through conversations about inclusion, and can assist in examining policies that better help your organization be more productive to a wide variety of communities. I believe through dialogue, amazing things can happen to interpersonal relationships, workplace teams, and organizational culture.

Victor Santana-Melgoza


The central question my workshops wrestle with is how we live a life based on values of inclusion. I use a theoretical framework to lay a foundation on how to talk about issues of diversity and social justice, then move on to practical applications.

Through interactive exercises, and with a little dose of humor, I offer opportunities to try new things, mess up, challenge yourself, and practice giving yourself and others a little bit of grace to go through the process.

Each workshop and training comes with time for reflection, small group shares, and large group discussions.
