GAC facilitates social change makers toward the clarity, consensus, and collaboration needed to reach their visions.

Gina has co-designed and co-facilitated dozens of social sector strategic planning engagements, with particular expertise in guiding collaborative efforts through periods of growth.

In 2020 she participated in “Anti-Racism for White People,” a year-long, live cohort training to learn how to recognize and counter racism in herself and the world around her, deepening her understanding of harmful systems and practicing taking action to combat white supremacy and racism in her daily life, personally and professionally. Gina fuels herself for systems change work through joyful travel, hiking, swimming, musical theater, and spiritual healing practices.
