About SEq:

Cofounded by South Carolina natives Quinetha and Caroline, the Southern Equity Collective LLC (SEq) is a multi-racial consultancy helping companies, nonprofits, and individuals acknowledge and integrate anti-racism into their strategic operations and brand.

SEq’s consultants—who hail from across the Southeast and the Global South—bring substantial expertise on business strategy, communications & marketing, nonprofit governance, social impact, and public policy, all grounded in anti-racist practices and goals.

As strategists, communicators, and catalysts, Quinetha and Carolina are personally and professionally engaged in the multi-dimensional work of unlearning racist behaviors and notions within our communities. SEq designs each of their client engagements to address the individual and the collective; to prepare equally for the reactionary and the anticipatory; and to align inner organizational dynamics with authentic, external narrative and commitment.
