DJA Team Highlights: Dr. Cori Wong
Each month we will be highlighting some of the truly remarkable consultants and folks behind the scenes at DJA. Our consulting team & faculty represent a variety of cultural and professional backgrounds and brings deep U.S. domestic and global experience. Our professional backgrounds include marketing, technology, human resources, diversity and inclusion, organizational development and instructional design, and truly so much more. It is with pride, admiration, and above all gratitude we showcase the incredibly knowledgable and passionate individuals we get to call colleagues.
Dr. Cori Wong is a speaker, writer, educator, and consultant with 15 years of training and leadership experience related to intersectional feminism, anti-racism, social justice, and inclusive culture change. At the heart of it all, she's an existentialist feminist philospher who believes in the power of changing ourselves as we change the world - and that the process can be exhilarating, healing, and fun! This she calls, positive philosophy. Committed to connecting new understandings with everyday experiences in ways that are accessible and exciting, Cori's approach is rooted in feminist theory, liberatory praxis, and transformation through critical dialogue by cultivating authentic relationships across differences. This she calls, feminist friendship. Regardless of the project, values of love, creativity, intimacy, and freedom inform the means and the ends for her work.
In addition to a decade of teaching, Cori has served as Assistant Vice President for Diversity and Special Assistant to the President at Colorado State University, where she earned her bachelor's degree. She earned her dual-title PhD in Philosophy and Women's Studies at Penn State University.
