Mission Statement

​​ProPOC is an acronym for pro people of color. ProPOC's purpose is to find and mentor BIPOC allies.


What is a BIPOC ally?

A BIPOC (Black Indigenous People of Color) ally is a person in the dominant culture who has made it their mission to become part of the solution, to stand with those who are oppressed and marginalized.

Founded by diversity literacy facilitator/mentor/diversity coach Derek Marlow Ewell, ProPOC Consulting aims to make positive change in the dominant culture by educating and training Agents of Change in Diversity Literacy, through music, seminars, poems, humor, stories, one-on-one coaching, and speaking engagements.

We teach by engaging the heart and mind.

Letter of Recommendation

"I would like to comment on Derek Ewell’s qualifications for doing diversity literacy work. I am an antiracist trainer and a facilitator and I had Derek in one of the trainings. 


I understand he is now stepping out to be an diversity literacy educator. From spending several weeks with him in the training, I can easily say that he is more than qualified. He is open and full of passion as well as being compassionate. He is a consummate people person, he’s open, easy to interact with, and self revealing.  This is the perfect next step for him to be doing the work himself in helping to educate others about diversity literacy and anti racism. More to the point, he is a natural.


Please feel free to contact me if you would care to talk more about Derek.
