Who We Are

Ecosistema is a Latina-owned business that specializes in offering tailored solutions so professional Black, Brown, Indigenous, and (other) people of color can reach their highest potential. We were established to assist organizations in analyzing and developing strategies and ideal conditions to help historically excluded professionals thrive in modern workplaces. We love disrupting outdated ways of thinking and working with organizations seeking to make a big impact in redefining the way we work. We believe that systems design work is essential in creating strategy, action, and implementation plans to drive the change we wish to see in our communities and workplaces. 

Ecosistema also manages El Pueblito Poder (The Power Village) a virtual community for Latinas and women of color.

Dr. Violeta Garcia

Systems Designer

Dr. Violeta Garcia is on a mission to reimagine what is possible in how we live our lives to be in the right relationship with change. As a scientist, she gained an appreciation for the power of nature as our teacher. She uses concepts in ecology, systems change, and systems engineering to inspire leaders to design the life they want to live and to create organizations where Latino, Black, Indigenous, Asian (BIPOC) leaders can thrive.

Nationally and locally, Dr. Garcia is a sought-after bilingual content expert, as well as an influential connector who facilitates collaboration and partnerships among industry, education, and community stakeholders. As a systems engineer, she loves disrupting outdated ways of thinking and believes that every person should have access to high-quality, culturally relevant, and culturally responsive learning experiences. Dr. Garcia believes that companies have an amazing opportunity to transform workplace cultures where every person can thrive and has decided to dedicate her life to this important work.
