Quodesia “Quo” Johnson (she/her) continues to forge dynamic and exciting spaces of shared belonging in arts and culture as a local and national speaker, equity specialist, healing practitioner, collaborator, and creative. Quo’s original Company Culture Framework™ combines her experience in the arts, business, organizational culture, and trauma-informed healing practices to cultivate a unique, human-centered approach to dismantling systems of oppression.
As the creator, content curator, and cohost of Taking the Stage with Kristian and Quo, she engages an international audience in meaningful conversations at the intersection of art, business, and community each week through The Dallas Opera’s TDO Network. The Dallas native currently serves as consultant and collaborator (Quo Johnson Co Project, LLC); education and company culture manager (The Dallas Opera); interim social justice advisor (OPERA America); racial equity coach (Dallas Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation); and founder and space moderator (Black Administrators of Opera). Quo is a proud graduate of Prairie View A&M University.
