Organizational Change Starts from the Inside Out
Identity is such a core part of who we are as humans. It shapes our core values and purpose. Identity never ends it evolves and carries on to future generations. Have an open mind, dive deep, and then resurface to the world of practice, strategies and DEAI focused metrics that will help you or your company be true to it’s name. The power is in the practice that drives the name.

I cannot imagine anyone I would more wish to support me through the most challenging conversations than Kapi’olani. Her profound empathy and ability to anticipate multiple perspectives, her patience and dedication to identifying an approach that will feel right to all involved, and her rigorous documentation of processes to ensure shared understanding, all make her uniquely qualified and poised to navigate the most sensitive situations...Kapi’olani’s wisdom is golden and I am truly grateful.
Our team loved working with Kapiolani this winter. She was incredibly flexible in designing the trainings to meet our team where we were at, both as individuals and as a group. The group trainings and 1:1 coaching sessions were both accessible and pushed our edges, and seamlessly wove in themes of equity in leadership. We are looking forward to working together into the future!
I had the incredible privilege of hosting Kapi’olani as a guest speaker in my Master-in-Teaching course this past winter. Kapi’olani masterfully wove together her knowledge and experience in Indigenous and wholistic-based learning practices with a targeted focus on student assessment. Her guest lecture, which included her experiences facilitating the Three-Sisters Community Garden Project at Yale University, was truly inspiring and eye-opening. Through her empathy, passion, and compassion, Kapi’olani is able to tap into a deep desire in all people to make our world a kinder, more loving and beautiful space. Her lecture left my students feeling inspired by the possibilities that they too could create wholistic learning projects in their own high school classrooms that could go on to fundamentally change our world.
Kapi’olani has a unique way of inviting people to learn and expand their thinking. She uses solutions-oriented approaches to model resiliency. She understands the long-haul aspect of supporting teams and organizations in ways that develop individual resilience toward a collective cause. Kapiolani guides individuals and teams in this way as they go down the road of systems change and evolution. Each time she searches for the new learning or growth areas and continually models that for others that she works with so that they can build confidence and resilience, in the process of change.
