NaKisha “Kisha” Freeman practiced 14 years as a social worker in both the public and private sectors. Kisha’s extensive child welfare experience includes prevention and permanency support working with youth and families through adoptions, kinship family support, and reunification (pre- and post-termination) programs. Kisha has been trained in several trauma-informed practices and tools and has considerable skills in team facilitation, training, and coaching. She has led several quality improvement activities and has partnered in community efforts to address disproportionality and equity issues within multiple social service systems. Kisha is driven by the opportunities to combine her career and life experiences, and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Frameworks to support individuals, groups, and organizations to deepening their understanding and awareness around dominant cultural values as well as tools and strategies to disrupt it. Recognizing that DEI work is a journey and not a destination, Kisha works to foster conversations that uplift people’s ability to interrogate and expand their current analysis of their everyday lives.
