As an InclusionBoston Manager, Rebecca provides support to client organizations to create sustainable organizational change towards inclusion and equity. As a Relationship Manager, Rebecca supports organizations to honor the unique contributions and motivations of each individual, to ultimately take collective action to create conditions for everyone to succeed.
Rebecca brings over a decade of experience facilitating dialogues, building relationships, and collaborative problem solving. Her work has focused on building inclusive communities based in common interests, cross-cultural understanding, and shared appreciation of each member as a unique individual.
Rebecca’s journey as a Community Builder started at YW Boston in 2010, when she was trained as a volunteer facilitator of the Community Dialogues on Race. She then founded and led the musical community Voices of Harmony, creating a space where people from diverse backgrounds can come together to learn, perform music from cultures around the world, and engage in meaningful cross-cultural dialogue. In 2014 Rebecca joined Big Sister Boston, where she supported friendships between Big Sisters (adult volunteers) and Little Sisters (youth with marginalized genders from all around the metro-Boston area) based on fun activities and common interests. Over 7 years, Rebecca supported thousands of these relationships, by observing and analyzing cultural differences, coaching with nuance and compassion, and honoring individuals’ needs and capacities.
The achievements Rebecca is most proud of outside work are: That she backpacked around Europe for 6 months and self-published a book of her photos from that time; As well as the incredible journey of parenthood that she and her partner Scott have been on since their daughter Penelope was born in November of 2018.
