Sesheta Tanya Holder
Sesheta Tanya Holder is a master weaver. She weaves together her varied experiences to help organizations center social justice in their work. Collaborating with those willing to do the difficult work, she uses grassroots techniques and tried-and-true methodologies to transform the walls of systemic injustice into a road of restoration. With decades of non-profit experience and 15 years working in museums, Sesheta is committed to bringing tangible change to communities. At the end of 2020, she decided that she could best do this work from outside of organizations. In her last museum role, she led the Diversity, Equity, Access and Inclusion (DEAI) work for 6 years. She has trained with Race Forward and the Cultural Competence Learning Institute (CCLI) and presented on several DEAI panels including those for CCLI and the Association for Science and Technology Centers. She holds a B.A. in Psychology and African American Studies from Wesleyan University.
