Chandra Larsen is a trainer, facilitator, evaluator, and weaver of visual displays that supports leaders and organizations committed to tackling pervasive social problems resulting from systems of racial, gender, and sexual inequities and violence.
Chandra specializes in designing learning and strategic planning sessions that enable changemakers to visualize innovative solutions to problems and experiment with doable actions with enduring results. She works with individuals and groups to design learning and action spaces that disrupt habits and barriers and tap into deep creativity – using human-centered design, graphic recording, and other engaging mediums.

Her work is rooted in rapid and iterative feedback cycles which helps support groups with identifying unique ideas to test, designing experiment and learning systems, and accelerating workable solutions to scale.
Chandra has been an activist and advocate all of her adult life, fighting for rights, justice, and equity for queer and transgender people, people of color, women, youth, and children.
Chandra is also the proud mother of a young son, who keeps her active running through the forest on trails and remembering the spirit of play – hours of designing elaborate train and transportation systems and exploring the broader universe. Raising a white male has elevated her commitment to racial justice and gender equity, and she and her husband deepen personal practices that will model for him a transformative version of personhood rooted in valuing the liberation of all people and mother earth.
