Kagochi Consulting provides the tools, resources and guidance for individuals, groups, and organizations navigating their own racial equity journeys.
We are fueled and grounded by compassion, racial justice and authenticity. And you.
We believe in learning alongside and growing with the communities and people we serve. We are very much people of color-centered with a relationship-based approach.
A little about me? My name is Julia (she/her/hers). I was born and raised in the Philippines, and immigrated to the United States when I was just 10 years old. Growing up as an English language learner and an immigrant, I experienced firsthand the emotional pain brought on by bullying, othering and stereotyping.
However, I was in college before I could fully articulate the complex realities I and so many other people of color face every day. I graduated from Hofstra University and have worked as a girls’ program specialist, community liaison, curriculum developer, youth minister, facilitator, and diversity manager.
I founded Kagochi Consulting, LLC because of a personal desire to create a healing space for myself and other people of color impacted by racist work environments and systems.
When I'm not working, I'm hanging out with my husband, our two kids, and Cookie Banana the Tortoise. Or eating.
