Meet the Collaborators

Meriko Kubota

My name is Meriko and I am a community builder living in TiskĘ·at (Powell River, BC, Canada), on the traditional and treatied territory of the Tla’amin Nation. I care deeply about creating more equity and addressing social issues, and my career reflects this passion. In the past 15 years I have had the opportunity to work in government, corporate, and not-for-profit sectors. The thread of my work has always focused on finding ways in which we can develop positive relationships with one another to achieve good work that impacts the world.

As an experienced group facilitator I’m known for being an exceptional listener, creating connections between people, and opening space for deeper dialogue. I apply systems thinking and complexity theory to unpacking the issues facing us today. I enjoy supporting people to connect with their whole selves, others, and the organizations they are a part of. I look forward to making a connection with you.

I’m Co-Facilitating Module Four of Facilitation Genius, where we’ll explore Psychological Safety and our Bias as facilitators (and human beings).
