“Individuals and communities are coming together in new and creative ways to build and repair our world...

your organization can
make a difference”

My name is Beth Zemsky and I would like to introduce you to my multidisciplinary approach to intercultural organizational development.

Whether you are an educational institution, a social change organization, a non-profit or for-profit entity, together we can build your capacity to make a difference in the world regarding social, racial, and economic justice.

Assessment Process

Building authentic relationships is essential to our collaboration. I get to know you through a thorough assessment process and then I tailor program development, training, facilitation, consultation, and coaching services specifically to address your needs.

The assessment takes place by addressing certain questions as well as using assessment tools in order to design our work together.

I will stay in relationship with you throughout this work— from three months to three years—to support you in achieving your long-term goals.

Please spend some time exploring this website, which represents my contribution to this “movement moment”—this time when individuals and communities are coming together in new and creative ways to build and repair our world. This truly is my life’s work, which I am honored and pleased to share with you. I would love to hear any questions or comments you may have.
