Ari Simon(-ofsky) runs Inner & Outer Engagement – a practice of community engagement, facilitation, and coaching. Using questions, activities, feedback, and analysis to explore what’s going on within ourselves, our organization, or our community (INNER), we create goals, actions, targets, and accountability strategies to better engage others, know ourselves, and gain personal, organizational, civic successes (OUTER). Ari currently leads stakeholder engagement for environmental and equity plans, provides facilitation and strategic engagement to a range of organizations, coaches one-on-one clients, and leads a bimonthly men’s consciousness-raising group. Through writing, drawing, map-making, workshops, and more, Ari loves to explore topics such as civic engagement, the public realm, loneliness, personal geographies, queerness, and death. Ari resides in Los Angeles and Idyllwild, CA.
