Dr. Sandra Chapman's (Dr. Chap) approach weaves together over 30 years as an educator, leader, and workshop facilitator. She draws on her scholarly work and research, her extensive professional work with varied organizations, and her passion for helping all community members feel a strong sense of belonging.
Whether Dr. Chap is working one-on-one with a diversity practitioner, alongside a team to deliver a challenging conversation for their organization, she aims to design sessions that help each member of the community find their voice and work together to build a stronger and more inclusive community.
“My biggest passion is to encourage others to become more involved in developing schools, communities and organizations and that are culturally competent and able to address the equity needs of diverse members.”

" Racial-Ethnic Identity Development is a HUGE topic and we were thankful that one of our favorite collaborators in this work, Dr. Sandra “Chap” Chapman, agreed to lead this overview of racial-ethnic identity models — how and why they were developed, and how to use them to understand our own racial-ethnic identity journeys and to support the happy, healthy and just development of the children in our lives." – EmbraceRace co-founders, Melissa Giraud and Andrew Grant-Thomas.
