Cat Ming Hubbard is an Oakland-based career counselor. Her experience spans the tech industry, higher education, public sector, and nonprofit social services. Her approach builds on the strengths, values, and resources of her clients. She is known for using whimsy and levity to the otherwise stressful process of job-seeking.
Cat believes strongly in assisting those who are disproportionately underemployed in their industries. To this end, she has specialized in addressing the specific challenges of women and minorities in tech, people with disabilities, and ex-offenders. Cat stresses the necessity of providing culturally competent services to underrepresented members of the workforce.
In addition to her counseling work, Cat has a strong background in community organizing, social justice, and community based participatory research (CBPR) with lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) communities.
