A Sutton-Bey LLC
is a culmination of projects spearheaded by Alia Sutton-Bey. Her experience in workforce development, youth development, community development, cultural arts development, and, most importantly, a profound sense of duty to her community is the driving force behind the projects.
Alia founded PACE Coaching Academy, a training and coaching program designed to move people and organizations through change and loss. The PACE Method promotes forward movement through experiential activities with a coach/consultant. We focus on self-awareness, personal and professional strengths, confidence building, goal development and execution, and accountability.
Alia hosts a weekly internet-based radio show, “Community Connections with Alia Sutton-Bey,” where she interviews local entrepreneurs, business leaders, and everyday people with the intent of creating connections that promote growth and prosperity.
Alia works with nonprofits and organizations through A Sutton-Bey’s consulting and human-centered design facilitation services, which focuses on supporting organizations with finding solutions around DEI, organizational wellness, employee retention, and leadership development. Our approach is at the intersection of DEI, Trauma-informed practice, and economic justice. Cross-sector collaboration and communication that spur innovation and creative solutions are our frameworks for solving broadly relevant problems impacting our communities. We understand that systems-level change creates better and safer spaces that promote healing, growth, and prosperity.
A Sutton-Bey takes a holistic approach to consulting and coaching with a deep understanding of the roles of intersecting ideas and identities.

"That is great what you are doing but I don’t expect anything less because you are a great person. You was a listening ear when I had concerns about my daughter encouraged her to succeed and now she is a RN with a BSN keep doing what you are doing you will never know the impact you have on people I want to say THANK YOU MY DEAR LADY"

"Good morning, Alia. I hope all is well. I wanted to share some good news with you. My daughter accepted a position at Rutgers University to be a professor of African American Studies. She will do this while wrapping up her PhD at Princeton University. Yes, she attended Princeton just as she proclaimed as a little girl.
So "Thank You!" for having such a profound impact on her. Her introduction to blackness and black excellence came from you and her experiences at Lonnie Young. Evidence that youth programming does impact lives!"
- Parent of a Former Student
"Alia was fabulous - so knowledgeable and well-rounded in her approach."
