About Rachel Egboro

Rachel Egboro is a storyteller and founder of The Whole Story, a platform for Black people and their stories. Inspired by the power of personal stories, Rachel launched the Whole Story in 2017 as racial tensions continued to rise in America. Through a one-on-one story-mining process, Rachel cultivates personal and relatable stories from the Black community. In partnership with Phoenix Art Museum, Rachel created a space where the audience can authentically connect with Black stories on a level deeper than the skin.

In addition to her work with The Whole Story, Rachel consults businesses and nonprofits like Prevent Child Abuse Arizona, inBusiness Magazine and Boys and Girls Clubs of Metro Phoenix to incorporate storytelling into their events.⁠

Rachel is also a Philanthropic Advisor at Arizona Community Foundation. She facilitates donors’ ability to achieve their individual charitable goals within the broader mission of mobilizing philanthropy for a better Arizona.
