Mawule A. Sevon

School Psychologist | Behavior Analyst | Author | Speaker

Mawule believes it is important to acknowledge her salient identities and their impact on how she arrives in any space. Mawule is a Black woman with two immigrant parents and professionally she is a school psychologist and behavior analyst.

She uses her behavioral approach to identify and mitigate the impacts of compound racial disparities in the U.S. education system. The glaring racial inequity in how disciplinary action is applied has most captured her attention and catalyzes the focus for her professional practice.  With a primary focus on inequity in disciplinary practices among young children, she works to increase educators’ and clinicians’ awareness and application of culturally responsive practices. With the specialization of diversity and social justice, Mawule has completed research, lead workshops, and facilitated discussion throughout the United States and abroad.

Her philosophy centers around capacity building and empowering parents, educators, and communities by providing them with the necessary information to make informed decisions. Mawule also proudly seats on the board of directors of the Association of Professional Behavior Analyst.  She founded The Key Consulting Firm specifically to have an impact on reducing racial inequity in schools by increasing the socially just work of educators.
