2021 NAPO-LA Leadership Forum

Building a Diverse, Equitable and
 Inclusive Culture into the
Organizing and Productivity Industry 

Presented By

Cindy Levitt
peace by piece

This interactive program is designed to help participants make the invisible visible and to understand that Anti-racism goes beyond diversity and fosters inclusion and success.

We will examine the issues of diversity, white privilege, unconscious racism, inclusion and equity with an emphasis on understanding the role social and cultural differences play out in our work and businesses.

We will create ways to have difficult conversations with stakeholders. The format will include breakout rooms for processing the content presented.

Cindy Levitt - peace by piece 

Cindy Levitt has worked within educational, social justice and interfaith environments on issues of diversity, racial justice, advocacy and community building for over 30 years. Some of this work included teaching a class Cindy created, "Social and Cultural Diversity," at the graduate school level to educators.

Some examples of her pro bono work include; Leadership on a local environmental racism issue in her community (Evanston, IL), Chicago community organizing as a founding member of the United Power for Action and Justice and serving 6 years on the Evanston Human Relations Commission.

14 years ago Cindy created her business "peace by piece professional organizing and design" (www.pxporganizing.com) helping people with organizing and productivity challenges in residential and business settings, creating peace on person at a time. Her motto is "Transform you space, transform your life!"

Recent events have confirmed the need for specific Diversity, Equity and Inclusion curriculum and training within the organizing industry, combining Cindy's two passions. (www.pxpdiversitytraining.com)

Cindy is a graduate of Washington University in St. Louis with a BA in Psychology and has an M.Ed from DePaul University in Chicago with a concentration in Multicultural Curriculum.
