Sophie Dipti Sarkar (she/her)  is a facilitator, coach, and artist based in Lenapehoking (Philadelphia, USA). Born under a full moon on the centennial of International Worker’s Day, her work is deeply informed by her love for justice and the night sky. She has spent nearly a decade organizing communities to heal from systemic oppression and reconnect with the natural world. She co-founded PGM ONE, one of the largest racial affinity spaces in the environmental movement, and Interwoven, a Black and Asian solidarity series and zine. She sees her art practice as a continuation of this work, supporting those around her to tell their stories, deepen their solidarity, and live in loving relationship with their land, water, and sky kin.

Sophie offers coaching support to folks at any level/rank within an organization who are interested in developing their leadership to create healthy, just, and creative workplace cultures. She has developed her coaching style through years of practicing mindfulness meditation, peer counseling, and experiential education. Using a heart-centered approach, she supports individuals to:

  • Dream up and clarify their vision, purpose, and values
  • Use an anti-oppression lens to address interpersonal power dynamics
  • Name, address, and process conflict
  • Understand and transform internalized oppression
  • Develop practices to own their inner wisdom and power
  • Organize and strategize culture change
  • Deepen their listening + synthesizing skills
  • Create practices for a healthier workplace culture
  • Develop their facilitation and leadership styles
  • Nurture their joy and creativity
