Affectionately known as “The Race Healer,” Milagros has been facilitating programs for over 35 years on race literacy, racial conditioning, and healing from racism that inform, transform, and lead to inspired action.
Her programs are presented at educational institutions, Fortune 100 companies, corporations, and public courses and seminars. A keynote speaker, Book Excellence Award Finalist, TEDx presenter, four-time author, and certified coach, Milagros's latest book, Cracking the Healers Code: A Prescription for Healing Racism and Finding Wholeness, has received rave reviews since its release in August 2021.
Milagros' work comes from lived experience and is backed by historical and scientific research. It comes from walking through the shadow to find her light, and in the process, helping others find theirs. What she brings to this work is great compassion, a deep understanding of race, and awareness of peoples' individual and collective power.
In her 35+ years facilitating seminars and conversations around race, Milagros has worked with members of Congress, corporate leaders, and across industries and specialties.
Milagros is a recipient of the 2021 NEW THOUGHT WALDEN AWARD for Interfaith/Intercultural Understanding. She is an opinion columnist for CEOWORLD Magazine and a columnist for Inc.com
Her signature 2-day program, Race Demystified, is the only program on race that walks participants through the healing process, quickening their understanding of race, racism, and racial conditioning in a way that traditional DEI training takes years to achieve, if at all. By connecting the past to the present and moving through the healing process, from awareness to wisdom, participants of Race Demystified leave with a stronger connection to themselves and to others, and are ready to live from their authentic selves as part of the human family.
Understanding and healing racism is her calling. Personal and collective development is her passion. She combines both to create a powerful and transformative experience.
