“Is the push for justice (racial, gender, climate, etc) a U.S. concept?” “How do we talk about these important issues without centering news events happening in the United States?” These are two questions Farah Mahesri is often asked as a diversity, equity, and inclusion expert.
In this partnership between FNM Advising and the Posner Center for International Development, join Farah Mahesri in exploring:
- The rich history of justice movements across the globe
- How to frame conversations related to DEI concepts, power, and justice across global offices
- Building a nuanced, global vocabulary to discuss liberation across borders
- Connect with others in this work
(Note: This session will be recorded and shared with all registered participants in case you are unable to join live.)
FACILITATOR AND CO-RAMBLER
Lead consultant and DE&I expert
How do we do a better job of changing the world (in a timely manner)? This is the central question that has been the propellant behind my career. I want to be part of the global movement that imagines – and builds! – a free, liberatory, fair world.
I have rambled, meandered and explored my way to this point. I have worked in journalism, in advocacy/lobbying, to support power building and social justice organizations, for large global for-profits, and for tiny start-up ed/tech nonprofits, learning something valuable from each experience.
Today, I work as a “consultant” supporting both large and small organizations striving for greater, bolder, fairer change. I partner and collaborate with organizations to explore their strategies, their organizations and people, and their programs through advising / consulting and leading transformational workshops.

This course is priced $20 if you are paying for yourself, and $65 if your employer is paying for you. Did you know that most people don’t use all or even some of their learning stipends every year? Please consider using your professional development funds and paying the $65 as that helps to compensate for time in creating the content and allows us to offer additional courses!
