OUR PHILOSOPHY
As our world tackles issues related to justice, equity, cultural competence and fairness, legal training for advocates with the greatest, and most impactful, contact with society continues to grow in importance.  We aim to increase sensitivity and awareness on the very issues mentioned above while offering tangible solutions for cultivating a society that is truly just and fair for all people. At WilMor Works, LLC, we aim to educate and empower our clients to actively contribute to societal transformation by first analyzing their personal attributes in a global context.
Difficult by nature, these topics are often challenging in social settings.  We understand, however, that perception is inherently subjective and having bias doesn't make a person bad, it makes them human.  This nuanced issue is widespread and a result of history, culture, and racial inequalities that continue to pervade our society.  Luckily, we believe that our implicit biases are not permanent; they can shift.
WilMor Works, LLC creates an experience that makes people feel good, motivated and a part of something bigger than themselves, something worth fighting for.  We call this philosophy Motivated Awareness and it starts with developing an understanding of individual identity and why that matters, examining how lived experiences impact decision making, exploring strategies for recognition and solutions, understanding the historical impact of race and culture, and analyzing 21st century nuances that require immediate attention. With this in mind, we leverage our love for people and our belief in their honest capacity to grow and change
