Halle Bauer is a seasoned educator with a deep passion for and expertise in diversity, equity, and inclusion. She brings a decade of experience working in public school systems in both Ohio and New York, where she fostered inclusive dialogue in her classes and with her colleagues, specifically around race, socio-economic status, and LGBTQ issues.
Halle traces her love of teaching and commitment to equity to her involvement as a high school student leader with the Student Group on Race Relations, a sustained dialogue group in her home school district outside of Cleveland, Ohio. Halle was so impacted by this experience that she returned to manage the program after completing her undergraduate work. Halle soon earned her teaching license and became a full-time high school teacher in the same district, responsible for courses including 9th grade English, African American History, Human Rights and Conflict, and Theory of Knowledge. After seven years working and teaching at her alma mater, Halle moved to New York City, where she taught Economics and Psychology at a public high school. Halle quickly became a champion of LGBTQ inclusion at her school, including creating and facilitating professional development.
Halle holds a bachelor’s degree in Human Development and Psychological Services and African American Studies from Northwestern University. She earned her master’s degree in History from Case Western Reserve University in 2018 with a concentration in queer history. She left classroom teaching in 2019 to make diversity, equity, and inclusion work her primary focus. She is the inaugural Client Success Coordinator at InclusionVentures, ensuring a high-quality experience for organizations that are making inclusion the norm.
