MPG Consulting is committed to ensuring that organizations serving diverse populations are prepared to provide transformative culturally and racially attuned programmatic, clinical, and administrative services with justice and dignity. MPGC understands the constructs and intersections of race and racism with gender (including gender fluidity), LGBTQIA+, class, religious (including anti-Semitism and Islamophobia), intellectual, emotional, and physical bias and other systemic forms of oppression based on social identity.
