Diversity and inclusion efforts have proliferated, with many organizations and individuals offering services. What makes Ending Payne special is taking a holistic, intersectional approach to diversity, equity, and social inclusion. We realize that you can not separate individuals from their multiple identities; therefore, your organization should not try to create policies or deal with these identities separately. The one off training on unconscious bias, forming a D&I working group (and one for LTBTQI+, and women, and...) leaves organizations vulnerable to being reactionary and not creating the inclusive environment they aim to achieve.
Nonprofit success - nonprofits, especially sexual and domestic violence organizations, often struggle with the business of running their nonprofit. We focus on bridging the gap between nonprofits' philanthropic cause and the enterprising nature of the for-profit world.
Tamika D. Payne, the founder, is an internationally recognized expert on gender-based violence (GBV), gender equality, diversity, equity, and social inclusion (DEI). She has 20 years of experience, including 11 years in international development and humanitarian affairs. Ms. Payne is a public speaker, skilled facilitator, and thought leader who weaves together her extensive professional experience with her personal (and shared) experiences of being a queer, black woman (and other intersecting identities) navigating senior leadership positions to elevate the work of protection and equity at all levels of an organization.
She started her career counseling sexual violence survivors; then ran a sexual assault counseling program in Michigan. Later she became the Executive Director of the Colorado Coalition Against Sexual Assault. She has served on federal funding boards, task forces, the RAINN advisory board, and others. Ms. Payne transitioned to working internationally, becoming a GBV technical advisor, and then the global coordinator overseeing GBV in humanitarian settings for the United Nations. She has presented at numerous international forums and developed global level strategy as well as community-based interventions. She has helped shape the local, national, and international policy, such as the Call to Action.
Ms. Payne addresses the lack of intersectionality and DESI in the anti-violence movement, as well as in broader gender equality efforts, strategies, and organizational development with Universities, Corporations, and Non-governmental organizations, through Ending Payne Consulting Services, where she is the Chief Executive Officer and Principal Consultant. Her consultancy provides high-quality, individually tailored, GBV and DEI services for governments, international and national organizations and businesses, the United Nations, community-based groups, and individuals.
Ms. Payne meets each client where they are; works with--and through--their individual, programmatic or organizational challenges to collaboratively build the understanding of, demonstrate the need for and subsequently develop and support the implementation of integrated, inclusive, intersectional strategies that will create and sustain equitable, inclusive environments. She also currently serves as the Vice-President, Board of Directors, for the New York State Coalition Against Sexual Assault, is a Board Member of the YWCA-NYC, and participates in the Global GBV Community of Practice.
