keynote Topics

Informed by research, data, and anecdotes, I dive deeply into the following subjects: 

  • Improving Approaches to Inclusion 
  • Becoming A Defenseless Disruptor 
  • Investigating Our Assumptions

I demonstrate the value in the subtext of our experiences.

When it comes to driving change, I ask three questions: 

  1. Where are we now? 
  2. Where did we come from? 
  3. Where do we go from here?

My framework

I center my 1:1 and group coaching on our shared understanding of the three elements below: 

  • Agency: As a community member, I have the power to either act or not in support of my safety and well-being.
  • Authenticity: I constantly fear rejection and feel the need to fit in, but I must understand that being ourselves allows confidence.
  • Alignment: Once I understand the need to be ourselves and active community members, I move to develop beloved communities. I explain how connecting shared core values and forming bonds are the base for a healthy community.

Consulting Services

I use a personalized consultative process that puts clients first. 

I believe building trust and using tact are key to creating effective solutions so I help clients identify their strengths and their voice to produce

  • Authentic Messaging
  • Teamwide Collaboration
  • Healthy boundaries

I offer active and authentic listening as we co-create a product that meets your short or long-term goals.

Client Review

Sonia is one of the most thoughtful, intelligent, and kind people I've had the pleasure to know on a personal and professional level. I am in awe of her ability to truly understand and empathize with other people's perspectives. While she has her own experience and education on matters involving diversity and race, she is an expert in creating open and honest conversations about difficult topics.
