is both an associate of Cambridge Hill Partners, and the founding
director of VAST Consultants, an independent religious diversity
education and training group.
Vanessa’s niche as a consultant lies in both her expertise
in religious diversity, as well as in her approach to conflict resolution
and cultural competence. Grounded in ontology (the study of being),
Vanessa’s training method breaks down cultural conflict to
its bare bones— listening and communication patterns—working
at the grassroots level on how human beings relate to each other.
Her sessions result in skilled management of diversity issues, effective
leveraging of diversity in the workplace, as well as profound new
understandings of the commonalities that exist beneath the diversity.
She also helps managers and healthcare providers with issues particular
to religious diversity, including advisory, best practices, accommodation,
and policy writing.
Vanessa holds graduate degrees from Yale University and King’s
College London, and is currently pursuing a doctorate at Hartford
Seminary. She is the author of Religious Diversity: A Practical
Guide for Corporate Managers & Healthcare Providers.
