Arielle Rebekah, founder of Trans & Caffeinated Consulting, is a transgender workplace trainer, public speaker, and mother to the three most different cats in the world. Their work centers on increasing access, resources, and opportunities for people of marginalized identities, with an emphasis on transgender communities. An admirer of media’s ability to shape culture, Arielle’s all-time favorite show is The Good Place. This understatedly profound and thoughtful comedy dares to dream of a world in which rather than being punished for their mistakes, people are given the love and support they need to do good. Similarly, Arielle's approach to their work is grounded in the need to relinquish guilt and shame in order to be effective accomplices in the liberation of marginalized people.
