Donna is an African American licensed clinical social worker and is the Clinical Director of Intercultural Counselling, LLC, a private practice located in the western suburbs of Philadelphia. She also an instructor at Bryn Mawr College’s Graduate School of Social Service and Social Research, where she teaches classes in Power Privilege & Oppression, Mindful Facilitation and Clinical Practice. For over 30 years, Donna has provided psychotherapy to adolescents and adults who have felt marginalized at work, school and in their relationships.
Donna first discovered Lee Mun Wah’s films when asked to teach a course in multiculturalism in 2003. This led to an ongoing, sometimes painful, journey exploring racism and her own internalized oppression, culminating with completing StirFry’s Mindful Facilitation Certification Program. Donna feels privileged and honored to have been taught and mentored by Lee Mun Wah and Rainbow Markell who were instrumental in her personal growth and solidifying her commitment to dismantling racism.
Her training at StirFry enabled her to create Intercultural Network, LLC, a business which assists non-profits, educational & religious institutions and other organizations working to develop antiracist and inclusive policies and practices. She combines her clinical expertise with her Mindful Facilitation skills to help clinicians and staff engage in ongoing dialogues about their different identities.
Having traveled extensively and resided in New York, Brussels, Belgium and now Southeastern Pennsylvania, Donna applies an intercultural lens to her life and work, which fuels her determination to help others communicate about race and other identities.
Donna Harris is a graduate of the StirFry Mindful Facilitation Certification and Internship Training Program.
