Kia Rivera (she/her)

DEI Facilitator

Kia is passionate about all things grounded in community and equity. She has extensive experience in DEI spaces in both Higher Education and Corporate spaces. As a facilitator Kia believes in the power of storytelling and building community. She uses these tools when facilitating because she believes that when stories are shared and community is built that is when we do the deepest learning.

Kia received her Masters in Higher Education Administration from Suffolk University, and earned her BA in History from Lasell University. When she’s not trying to take down all the systems she can be found hanging out with her dog and wife, gaming, or enjoying the outdoors either on a hike or on a run.

Kia specializes in many DEI topics, including:

  • Community Care
  • LGBTQIA+ Issues
  • Colorism
  • Racism
  • Trans Issues
  • Gender
