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. Our multiracial diverse team is composed of social workers, educators, psychologists, psychiatrists, business experts, researchers, social justice advocates, and community organizers. They have extensive experience doing training on issues of cultural and racial competence for mental health and human service staff.
MPGC works closely with and aligns with the principles of the People’s Institute for Survival and Beyond, who, based in New Orleans, are recognized nationally and internationally for their Undoing Racism® & Community Organizing Workshops. To ensure that all our consultants are fully equipped with a complete understanding of working within an antiracist framework, each consultant is required to attend the Undoing Racism® workshop before working on any MPGC assignment.

Our mission is to provide consulting services that exemplify the high-quality services we so vigorously seek to support in organizations committed to aligning themselves with antiracist policies that eliminate barriers to success in the workplace.
MPG Consulting’s undertaking of Institutional Antiracist Consulting is an immediate response to our understanding of the urgency to respond to institutions that courageously stepped forward to create antiracist organizations where dignity and humanity are at the forefront. Our current political, racial and economic environment has further highlighted the need for building strong alliances with colleagues, institutions and communities to help develop language, policies and procedures that propel us into an awakened state where internal biases and historically imbedded institutional prejudices are no longer concealed and are dismantled.
Our services combine didactic and experiential methods to focus on the meaning of cultural and racial identification; the experience of staff and clients related to their cultural, racial, gender identity, their sexual orientation, and immigrant status; and guidelines for addressing race and culture within the organization.
