Our work at A CALL TO MEN seeks to address intersectional oppression at its roots. That means you can't be anti-sexist without also being anti-racist. We intentionally look to those “at the margins of the margins” to articulate their own lived experience and help define solutions that will be effective in their lives. When we center our attention and efforts on those “at the margins of the margins,” it’s our belief that everyone will benefit. This philosophy holds true for any anti-oppression work, whether it be sexism, racism, classism, heterosexism, ableism or ageism. The impacts of male supremacy and white supremacy have created this moment. And it will take undoing those constructs for us to achieve real equality and equity.

Celestial Consulting LLCwww.Celestial-Consulting.comBefore starting Celestial Consulting, we wanted to ensure that we offered services that would increase our clients' impact in their work and accelerate the pace at which they could achieve their missions. Regardless of sector or size, clients’ common needs have been around building, planning and managing. Many leaders need help BUILDING (trust, cultural competence & interpersonal awareness, skills, and structures). Leaders also express a need for help with PLANNING because they were reorganizing, growing, downsizing, shifting directions, or striving to be more intentionally inclusive and equitable. Others seek guidance in MANAGING, including "managing up," managing others, managing across different backgrounds and social identities, and managing through conflict.

Celestial Consulting was founded to address these pain points, so people can move past friction and get the help they need to build, plan, and manage toward outstanding results. We have successfully helped organizations increase retention rates, create and implement policies to ensure equity, and grow the skills of managers to improve effectiveness and impact. Please see our Services page for ways we may help you.
