Kimberly B. George directs Critical Social Theory Consulting, an innovative business that brings specialized academic theory on power, privilege, and social justice (including the tools of feminist, critical race, and queer theory) into spaces such theory is not traditionally taught.
Her clients include those working in education, social justice minded businesses, health care, and mental health organizations. She provides curriculum, assessments, 1:1 consulting, and in-person small group workshops in order to facilitate learning and strategy work.
Given the racial violence of this historical moment in the U.S., she especially feels the importance of helping teachers who have white privilege (like herself) learn to do feminist, anti-racist work. Her own rigorous training is rooted in women-of-color feminist academic-activist traditions, which have led the way in theorizing social justice. As an acknowledgment of this profound intellectual lineage from which she teaches, a portion of the income from Critical Social Theory Consulting supports local women-of-color activists.
Kimberly holds an MA (summa cum laude) from Yale University, where she was a Merit Scholar from 2009–2011, and a Postgraduate Associate in Gender Equity and Policy from 2012–2013. She’s currently a doctoral student, where her scholarship focuses on structural violence, psychic life, and creative pedagogies.
Kimberly is also a writing consultant, supporting both creative and academic writers. Her own writing has appeared in such publications at The Feminist Wire, NewBlackMan (in Exile),The New Haven Register, The Washington Spectator, Feministing.com, and The OpEd Project’s ByLine Blog. She is the co-editor, with David Leonard and Wade Davis, of Football, Culture, and Power due out May 2016.
