I’ve had the pleasure of working with Gilmara Villa Nova-Mitchell in connection with a variety of engagements, from coaching to equity consulting. Gilmara brings diversity, equity, and inclusion expertise and perspectives from her own lived experience. She is focused, calm, and kind. Gilmara is unique and especially valued to me and our organization because of her deep understanding of the complexity of how organizations work and the systems that underlie them. This combination of expertise is so important to advancing equity and change in an organization.
