I’m Rosita Choy, and I’m a facilitator, trainer, and coach. Before becoming a consultant, I worked as a full-time staff person in various nonprofits for more than twenty years. I believe passionately in promoting sustainable organizational cultures and practices. As a consultant, I facilitate staff, board, and stakeholder meetings and group decision-making. To strengthen organizations and their staff, I offer training and coaching, with an emphasis on power and cross-cultural dynamics. I am acutely aware of how gender, race, class, sexuality, ability, and immigration status, in addition to personality, affect group and interpersonal interactions.
I’ve been on every side of the nonprofit table: I’ve been in the position of board president, director, and assistant. I have experience in nearly all aspects of nonprofit management: direct services, fundraising, community organizing, training, policy, finance, and administration. Whatever your challenge is, it’s likely I’ve been there, too. I’ve walked in this world as an Asian-American immigrant from Latin America who grew up working-class and came out as a lesbian. I offer my skills and experience in service to social justice organizations and individuals.
