  • I'M ZAHRA, IT'S NICE TO MEET YOU!

    I'm a transformative spiritual leadership coach, an award winning entrepreneur, and an attorney by training. I began my career working in a civil rights attorney in Minneapolis and developed the “Positive Interactions” diversity training on race and religion, which has been used by Fortune 100 and 500 companies, government agencies, and public school districts. In addition to supporting workplaces to create positive environments I also coach Black and underrepresented leaders to overcome the mental, racial, and spiritual roadblocks to lead transformative lives.

     

    If you're looking for diversity training on Muslims, anti-Black racism, coaching for Black and underrepresented leaders or strategic planning for DEI you're in the right place!

  • RACIAL JUSTICE DIVERSITY TRAINING

    Diversity trainings provide information and understanding on the issue of systemic anti-Black racism. I offer three different trainings. Each session can be a 1 hour talk or a half day interactive training.

    1.

    Systemic Racism Overview

    For companies initiating a meaningfully discussion on racism

    A concise review of the grievances, frustrations and demands of Black people. It begins with historical context and connects to the current everyday experience of Black people in America. Ending with ways to support efforts to create a just workplace and society for Black people.

    2.

    Identifying and Combating Racism

    For companies that want to move out of discussions and into action

    We will go over the ways racism may be impacting Black employees - hiring, retention and promotion - as well as Black consumers or clients. Participants will leave with clear actions to create a fair and comfortable workplace as well as ways to better support their Black consumers or clients.

    3.

    Achieving Racial Justice

    For companies committed to rooting out racism in their institution and society

    Anti-Black racism is affects every facet of American life, for companies that understand that they have capacity to change more then just their own polices. In the vein of Ben & Jerry's or Patagonia. This class provides employees at all levels a guide on how to be a thriving company as well as a force for anti-racism.

  • RELIGIOUS DIVERSITY TRAINING

    These trainings provide clarity on the highly misunderstood religion of Islam and the Muslims who follow the faith. We also expose Islamophobia, which is the unsupported fear of Islam and Muslims based on propaganda, power and racism.

  • MY APPROACH

    I use training and coaching to not simply inform, but TRANSFORM. I focus on results and transformation of individuals and companies. My approach centers of four elements:

    Honest Assessment

    Now it is critical to be clear and upfront about the mistakes that have been made and the harm that has been caused. Acknowledging the pain begins the path to healing and sets the foundation for true change.

    Uncomfortable Conversations

    Direct, open honest conversations that addresses the issues of race, identity, religion, value and culture. We create a safe space where historic racism, gender bias and all phobic attitudes can be addressed head on.

    Mindset Shifts

    Through activities, discussions and case studies I guide participants through the attitude and mindset shifts that are required to show up at work ready to share bold ideas and listen with an open heart.

    Vision for the Future

    True innovation, creativity and inclusion thrive when equity, justice and respect are established. Individuals, communities and workplaces thrive when we understand our history and appreciate our interdependence.
