We are based in Minnesota!

Social Motion is based in St. Paul. The word Minnesota is derived from the Dakota phrase Mni Sota Makoce which means ‘Land Where the Waters Reflect the Clouds’.  (Come visit us and see for yourself how true this is!)

This photo is one of my favorite lakes near my hometown! 

With humility and respect, Social Motion acknowledges that we work on land that continues to hold great historical, spiritual, and personal significance for its original stewards, the Dakota and Ojibwe people. To hear voices and stories from Dakota and Ojibwe people, I highly recommend starting your journey here: Native Nations Stories / MN Humanities

Equity and Social Motion

Social Motion is committed to inclusion, diversity and believes that no one should be discriminated against because of their age, race, physical ability, ethnicity, gender, gender identity and expression, religion or sexual orientation. Social Motion believes government laws, regulations and business practices should recognize, support and uphold equity principles and practices.

Social Motion understands and accepts that European Americans racialized as white can’t fully understand the burden and trauma of racism or the lifelong impact of systemic racism on communities of culture. The work and weight of dismantling racist structures and systems should not fall on the shoulders of those who are Black, Indigenous or People of Color/Culture. To best honor our organization’s values, address equity, and support culturally-responsive services, Social Motion consistently partners with / subcontracts with a variety of equity experts to co-lead and support project work. Social Motion is not doing this work perfectly, but is committed to partnering with others, showing up, doing the work, continually learning and improving.

We offer customized coaching, training and learning design services.
