Helping you achieve success.
Ending Payne Consulting Services LLC endeavors to create a world that is more just and equitable. Where people can live free from gender-based violence and have equal access to and control over the resources needed to thrive.
We achieve our mission by working with Colleges and Universities, International and Domestic nonprofit organizations, the United Nations, Government partners, Community Based Groups and through Executive Leadership support services.
We address the lack of intersectionality and diversity, equity, and social inclusion (DESI) in the anti-violence movement and broader gender equality efforts, strategies, and organizational development. We provide high-quality, individually tailored GBV and DESI services .
Ending Payne brings together experts in their fields to meet each client where they are currently and where they want to be in the future. We work through their individual, programmatic or organizational challenges and collaboratively create the needed tools and resources necessary for integrated, inclusive, intersectional work.
We also provide learning opportunities on subjects such as Title IX to addressing racism in programming to developing gender equality strategies.
Ending Payne Consulting Services LLC provides clients around the world with the tools and knowledge necessary to create safer, more diverse, and inclusive organizations, programs, and movements.
Tamika D. Payne founded Ending Payne more than a decade ago to address gender-based discrimination, racism, and inequities within, and for, organizations working to protect and end gender-based violence (GBV) globally. Ending Payne utilizes its extensive network of technical experts from all sectors to provide comprehensive, holistic training, technical assistance, education opportunities, research, leadership development and strategic guidance.
Ending Payne’s clientele has ranged from United Nations Agencies, Government Partners, International and domestic non-profits (such as Oxfam, Plan International, New York State Coalition Against Sexual Assault), businesses of all sizes including Fortune 200 companies, and individuals and groups seeking leadership development.
Historically, organizations that attempt to protect, prevent, and provide services for intimate partner and sexual violence say they address the root causes (prevention) of violence and oppression externally. Concurrently, those roots grow untamed within their own organizations because of the lack of tools and resources to meaningfully address anti-oppression (or diversity, equity, and inclusion for the business community) internally. This dichotomy harms their own staff and volunteers. Importantly, it harms the very communities they seek to serve because they remain victims of the existing disparities based on gender, race and socioeconomic status that are not adequately addressed in service delivery.
As a black-, queer-, woman-owned small business, that is Black, queer, women and ally-run, Ending Payne provides anti-oppressive tools, strategies, and plans for our partners and clients to create more equitable spaces for historically marginalized employees and survivors of gender-based violence. Ending Payne takes an inter-generational approach to support institutional, systems-level change alongside the Black women and femme abolitionists that built this movement.
No longer will the only choice for survivors and the anti-sexual violence movement be non-profits led by white women espousing diversity, while unintentionally, and sometimes intentionally, harming the very women they claim to protect. They also claim ownership to bolster interventions that underrepresented communities feel unsafe utilizing.
This month we welcome two amazing individuals to the team, Tracia Banuelos-Rovaris and Sam Skaller. They bring extensive experience in GBV prevention, response, and risk mitigation. Their GBV experience is rooted in anti-oppression, and they join us to ensure an intersectional approach to all the current, new, and future services we offer.
Looking forward to 2022, we anticipate welcoming a new lawyer to the team who will specialize in supporting businesses, nonprofits and law firms who need support for investigating discrimination and sexual harassment complaints. In addition, they will support Executive Leadership Training that focuses on how to integrate an anti-oppressive focus within the legal confines of our corporate structures, and mediation and dispute resolution.
With these two new additions, Ending Payne is exciting to share some of its upcoming learning opportunities.
