DOMINIQUE SAMARI, JD.
Dominique Samari is an experienced strategist, coach and facilitator who helps organizations build and sustain equitable and inclusive change. A naturally empathetic leader, Samari specializes in supporting leaders as they navigate difficult and complex change.
Samari began her career as a criminal defense attorney and a City of Milwaukee criminal court commissioner. She transitioned from the practice of law to international development, serving in key management positions for the U.S. Department of State’s Rule of Law Program in Afghanistan. There, she designed and implemented culturally-relevant strategies and training opportunities for over 2,000 Afghan criminal justice professionals.
In 2011, Samari translated her diverse background and experience into co-founding P3 Development Group. Most recently, Samari has led planning for Imagine MKE, the city of Milwaukee’s first inclusive hub for arts and culture, helped set the strategic direction for the newly-created Milwaukee Parks Foundation, and facilitated racial equity and inclusion strategy development for the Greater Milwaukee Foundation.
Samari is also the creator of the Belonging Project, a year-long exploration into how individuals create a sense of belonging across differences. Informed and inspired by data from the Belonging Project, she subsequently developed Kin, an online platform designed to authentically connect individuals across real and perceived differences.
Deeply reflective about race and culture in America, Samari is a speaker in the U.S. Department of State Speaker’s Bureau and has been published in Nonprofit Quarterly, Milwaukee Magazine, Urban Milwaukee and Our Human Family. She received her Juris Doctorate from Marquette University Law School and is the recipient of the Women’s Fund Game Changer Award.
