Now, more than ever before, creating belonging is imperative for healthy and resilient people, organizations, and communities. Blue Agave Partners works with you to identify the conditions necessary for courageous and authentic relationships that cultivate connections based on acceptance of self and others that enable aligned action. We are deeply motivated by the power of belonging as an essential factor for any meaningful social change.
"Belonging is about recognizing our deep and profound connection with each other, with the earth, and with all living creatures. When we do not recognize that we do violence, not only to each other, but to the earth and to everything that is sacred."
-john a. powell
As a member of the human race and as part of the legacy I belong to, I am beholden to speak out against a binary frame that pits people against each other. It is my duty to work with others to deconstruct, reimagine, and redesign philanthropic culture and practices that harm communities of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color. Central to my vocation is engaging those in philanthropy in discomfort as a catalyst for meaningful transformation. It is my values and my vocation to create spaces for people to transform and transition how they show up in the world that steadies me in turbulent times.
You cannot change any society unless you take responsibility for it, unless you see yourself as belonging to it and responsible for changing it.
Let's meet and see if together we can change the world to become better for those seven generations who are to come. Reach out to figure out when would be a good time for us to meet.
