About Monique Liston

Dr. Monique Inez Liston is the Founder, Chief Strategist and Joyful Militant at UBUNTU Research and Evaluation, a strategic learning organization based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She is a self identified Afrofuturist, a person who believes that Black people should imagine the future unencumbered by oppression and its intersection and that getting to that future requires Black people’s radical imagination and creative thought. She is a proud alum of Howard University and remains #bisonproud even as she obtained a Masters in Public Administration from the University of Delaware and a Ph.D. in Urban Education from the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee. Her organization has been nominated as Best Place to Work for Social Justice by the Shepherd Express in 2021 and 2022.  She was selected as a winner for the Milwaukee Business Journal’s Diversity in Business Awards in 2022. If this world wasn’t ravaged by the anti-Black sexist queerphobic capitalism, she would be a chef and storyteller. If you read this bio, she hopes that you feel the desire to build better communities with those you love.
