As Seen On:
Helping companies, communities, classrooms, and communicators bridge “us” and “them,” to unlock purpose and belonging.
Homa Tavangar’s writing, speaking, and advisory services build purpose and belonging by deepening connections to our wider world and to each other, across the life-cycle.
The heart of her work links global citizenship and a global mindset with anti-bias, anti-racist practices. Creating coherence between what is deeply personal and hyper-local with what is impact-making and global requires new skills and dispositions. Together, these can contribute to transformational mindsets for learning, innovating and belonging.
Research shows that the #1 contributor to happiness comes from meaningful work and meaningful relationships. When we feel what we do matters, when we live with a sense of service beyond our self -- this is purpose. Learning and working with purpose builds motivation, quality of work, and ultimately, joy. Extensive research also cites the biggest contributor to unleashing innovation is psychological safety. The safety to bring our whole selves, feel truly seen, and reciprocate empathy embodies belonging. In this context, global citizenship and deep inclusion address core human needs for living and thriving on our planet today.
I strive to integrate these ideas whether in the bright, fun Global Kids activity deck, building understanding for teachers, or in coaching leaders.
