After an interesting beginning to their relationship, Bari Katz and Tanya Williams have developed a relationship over the years deeply rooted in their shared beliefs and values around social justice and liberation. As a design and facilitation team, we have worked with a number of outstanding organizations to disrupt the nature of white supremacist patterns and culture.

Bari first met Tanya when we were both working with the Posse Foundation in 2011, Bari in the National Office and Tanya as a mentor for Posse Scholars at Mount Holyoke College. They reconnected a few years later when Tanya moved to NYC to take on a new role as the Deputy Vice President for Institutional Diversity and Community Engagement at Union Theological Seminary. In 2016, Tanya became a full-time social justice consultant and founded Authentic Coaching and Consulting. Bari and Tanya have a strong connection as two people who believe deeply that a more socially just world is possible, and are committed both personally and professionally to creating spaces that invite others to imagine and work toward that possibility.
Bari and Tanya’s work together is based on and in the following:
Connectivity and belonging
Analysis of power
Acknowledgement and disruption of white supremacist and white cultural practices
Oppression theory and system oppression
Connecting the head, the heart and the body
Individuals create organizations and people matter most
Diversity matters deeply to us as a training team; affinity matters as well
