About Me: Catherine Orland, a trainer and facilitator who specializes in Multicultural Education, Cultural Competency, Organizational Development and Conflict Resolution, consults with groups who seek to become more inclusive or increase their awareness around issues of race, class, gender, sexual orientation, age, ability and religion. She is most passionate about ‘working with white folks around race’–in 1998 she founded a dialogue/activism/self-exploration group called White Women Against Racism. In addition to policy analysis and youth development work, Catherine has also organized Study Circles on the racial achievement gap. She is a trained facilitator of Open Space Technology and Intergroup Dialogue. At Mount Holyoke College she had the opportunity to study with Dr. Beverly Daniel Tatum, author of Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria. Catherine holds a Master of Arts in Social Justice in Intercultural Relations with a focus in Community Development and Social Action Training from the School for International Training (SIT) in Brattleboro, Vermont.
