About the authors

Vernita Mayfield began her career teaching elementary school which is when she discovered her love serving and supporting students who have been historically marginalized. Since then, she has continued to do so as an author and through numerous positions of service, including secondary school principal, researcher and lecturer, and educational consultant at state and national levels.

In 2012, Mayfield founded Leadervation Learning to support organizations seeking to build leadership capacity, particularly in marginalized communities. The company evolved into a vehicle supporting leaders at all levels to understand and dismantle inequitable systems and organizations by building the cultural competency of staff. Her focus as an author and speaker is course development and training and facilitating conversations on leadership, race and equity. She provides professional development, curriculum development and consultancy in cultural competency, equity, unconscious bias, and culturally responsive practices, utilizing effective, research-proven instructional methods to enhance learning and ensure learning solutions are relevant, innovative, measurable and scalable.
