Finding joy in creating order out of chaos is a unique skill and Karmen Belvin has just that. A top-tier organizer, she works collectively with the BE Client Experience team to assist with schedule planning and managing resource assignments for projects. Her passion for organizing stems from her love of inspiring, encouraging and empowering those around her–something she finds synergistic with Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Accessibility (IDEA) work. Karmen has 10+ years of experience supporting projects, programs, and assignments in a variety of organizations such as higher education, health care systems, nonprofit organizations, and corporate sectors. Her inclination to work from the heart is what she considers most important in all of her experiences.

Do you think people can really change?

Yes, I think people can do what they put their mind to. I believe that we have the power to be all that we truly desire to be.

What are you currently working through that others can’t see?

Unbecoming, society has posed so many ideas, standards and principles on my make-up and as I grow, I have learned that unlearning is just as essential in my life.

What’s one thing you haven’t done yet? What’s holding you back?

Sky-dive, the 10,000 feet of air I would have to float through to land is the only thing holding me back, haha! I may build up the courage to do it one day.


Join us for an engaging and interactive Zoom panel with Be Equitable team members who will discuss important issues currently facing the LGBTQ+ community, explore the power of allyship, and transforming workspaces that foster a sense of belonging for all.
Listen, learn and connect with other DEI colleagues and changemakers who every day bravely speak the truth about how together we can create a just and equitable world for all. We hope that you will join us.

This session is part of our #BE365 series which celebrates, educates, and highlights cultural moments and under-represented voices throughout the year.

Cook Ross is now BE Equitable

These past few years have been incredibly tumultuous and evolving, where we have witnessed how complex and messy our world is.

In a world of tick-a-box trainings and quick fixes, we at Be Equitable are going after something more satisfying -- we’re here for the transformations. For the forward thinkers and future leaders who know the journey is long and are still ready, we see you and we want to partner with you.

Let’s go beyond the buzzwords to create workplaces that work for people of all races, ethnicities, identities, and abilities. It won’t be neat. And it certainly won’t be simple. Our BE team is ready and committed to get it done.

As we enter this next chapter of our story, we invite you to BE bold, BE inclusive, and BE authentic to the vision you have for yourself and your organization. And together we can create workplaces that are just and equitable for all.
