Growing up the youngest of six kids in a low-income family, Rita often had the experience of feeling unseen and unheard. She became very focused on hearing and seeing others – as individuals and within the groups that we live and work in. This led her to recognize the uneven playing field that we call “equal.”
Rita works with individuals, teams, leaders and organizations to improve the culture and practice of supervision, thereby helping the organization to be more effective. With a background in human resources and training in organizational development, she weaves those practices together in her coaching, consulting and training. Rita has an MA in Organizational Psychology and is a certified professional coach. Rita has taught part time at University of San Francisco and Sonoma State University in California. Rita’s new book is titled Leading for Justice: Supervision, HR and Culture.
