Leadership for Belonging

Our Motivation

Our Motivation

Now, more than ever before, creating belonging is imperative for healthy and thriving 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 you belong] you have the power to co-create the thing to which you belong." 

-john a. powell

As part of the legacy to which I belong, 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 be aware of the arrangements and ideas that can transform philanthropic culture and practices that harm communities of Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian-American, and non-racialized communities that are marginalized or disinvested (e.g., LGBTQ, disabled). Central to my approach is harnessing discomfort as a catalyst for meaningful transformation on a personal and organizational level.  My gift to create spaces for people to transform and transition how they show up in the world which steadies me in turbulent times.

Let's Meet

Let's Meet

You cannot change any society unless you take responsibility for it, unless you see yourself as belonging to it and responsible for changing it.

- Grace Lee Boggs

 

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 raquel@leadershipforbelonging.com to determine when would be a good time to meet.
