Facilitation and Other Services

Rosalee offers a suite of services to support teams, organizations, partnerships and coalitions to step fully into their creativity, power and joy while disrupting the status quo and creating a more loving, equitable world. 

specifically creating deeper partnerships and fostering innovation for equity through design and facilitation of dialogue for connection and change. We specialize in intersectional, cross-functional, cross-organizational, and cross-sector collaboration, community-building, and learning, and we bring issue-area expertise on a range of socioeconomic issues that impact BIPOC and immigrant communities.

Facilitation is at the heart of our work


communities of practice

multi-stakeholder partnerships

working on policy advocacy & systems change, whether at formation & visioning stage, implementation stage, or re-strategizing stage; we have experience with both place-based initiatives and cross-sector partnerships.

program or campaign evaluation & re-design efforts

that meaningfully engage diverse team members to leverage perspectives and thought leadership and provide pathways to effective collaboration.

staff retreats

to increase connection, develop culture, and reflect deeply to support strategy development and collaborative relationships.


to support wellness and address burnout and / or build skills around communication, collaboration, and facilitation. Workshops provide hands-on engagement opportunities as well as tools and micro-practices to take-away.


We ALSO know that sometimes teams need additional hands-on support to build on the fruits of facilitated group work: advice on grantmaking strategies, revenue development to support implementation, research to support group intuitions, or other help to enact strategies.

We draw on expertise developed over 20+ years of experience in social justice work – including grassroots organizing, campaigning, advocacy, research, grant-making, grant-writing, and network building – to provide practical support for planning and implementation phases of work.

“Heddy provided an immense knowledge of Los Angeles' education and workforce systems. Her ability to synthesize data and information about these systems and provide context as it related to our project was vital in bringing together partners who were largely unfamiliar with the work. With Heddy's support, we were able to develop plans for the region to better align education and careers for the benefit of students in Los Angeles.”

“Heddy provided incredible insight on how to ensure that our community-driven, racial equity project concept was framed effectively for federal funding approval. Given her deep experience in the field, she was able to rapidly understand our needs and help formulate an appropriate and effective response to the challenge at hand. She was clearly aligned with our organizational values and able to provide critical assistance in helping us secure $2M from the Federal Forest Service to support our work to increase the tree canopy in neighborhoods in heat zones.”
