E. Guilu Murphy (she/her; pronounced: gway-loo) is the child of an immigrant, a product of diaspora, and shaped by the loss of her father as a young adult. She is always looking for ways to grow and unlearn dominant paradigms of possibility. A skilled, healing-centered ICF certified coach, facilitator, community builder, mediator, and end-of-life doula, she is interested in exploring what it means to be in right relationship with ourselves, each other, and the earth for collective liberation, the human dimensions of working together better, and the hard work of healing mind, body, and spirit. Passionate about setting people of color up for success and co-creating empowering spaces for them to lead, she hopes to center the need for liberation in the environmental and social change field with the ultimate goal of supporting a future where everyone can thrive as they deserve. She cultivates supportive environments for fellows with resources to learn and lead.

Guilu received her BA in East Asian Studies and Environmental Studies from Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT. She is also an alum of the Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program (DDCSP) at the University of Michigan and loves Ann Arbor in the summertime. She’s learned to love mentorship through her own incredible mentors, and of the many younger students she’s had the joy of working with through DDCSP and beyond. She is passionate about supporting people of color in the environmental field, uplifting and centering marginalized narratives and voices, and practicing #thicksolidarity “in ways that do not gloss over differences, but pushes into the specificity, irreducibility, and incommensurability of experiences.” When not working she enjoys living in Philadelphia, listening to NPR, embroidering, and sharing food with friends.
