Hala Teeny

"Your work is incredible and has resonated so much with the Black, Brown, Indigenous and other systemically non-dominant (Jenkins, 2015) folx we train. Challenges white supremacy, reframes critical conversations. Your work has been an essential part of my journey."

Edward K. McDonald III
McDonald-McElrath & Caffey-Lowery

"I had the distinct honor of having Dr. Debra (Debi) Jenkins, PhD as a guest on the Women Who Soar Sister Chat. Dr. Debi was so phenomenal that I invited her back for a Part 2 discussion. Her DEEP EXPERTISE provided the viewers insight and awareness to systemic racial issues and solutions. She also provided practical tools to help Black and Brown people navigate their responses to adverse encounters. Dr. Debi left us feeling INSPIRED, CHALLENGED, ENLIGHTENED, and EMPOWERED to soar higher. "

Mary J. Morton
Personal and Executive Coach Founder & CEO W.I.N.G.S LLC

"I entered the space today trying to focus my intention on healing and forgiveness. Words cannot properly express my gratitude. You and Christina, created a challenging and healing space for me. You provided clarity, tools, and encouragement that I so needed at this very moment. You are truly a gift! I am honored to have the opportunity to share space with you."

Rafeeka Kloke
Director of Legislative Affairs in Higher Education

"Inspired. Enlightened. Activated. These are just three adjectives to describe the impact I've personally experienced by having Debi Jenkins as my coach. From challenging my thinking to helping me realize my goals, her extensive knowledge, insight and skill helped me discover ways to ignite and share my flame! "

Crystal D. Hill
Personal and Executive Coach Green Hills Coaching North Carolina

"Working with Dr. Jenkins has been so impactful for me personally and professionally. My thinking about my biracial identity has grown more sophisticated through the short time I’ve been working with her. She has been helping me unlock my relationship with my Blackness in a way I have never had access to or a framework for. This allows me to show up as a version of myself that is more authentic to me and my own lived experience in ways that are hopefully less harmful for my Black colleagues and friends. "

Xyanthe Nieder, PhD
Antiracism Education Consultant

"Dr. Debi's coaching leadership has given me the ability to focus better on my professional goals, have patience when leading difficult conversations with others within my community and to be a better problem solver! On a personal growth level she allowed a safe space for me to utilize gratitude, enjoy present moments and to look forward to my next life's ventures!"

Carmen Rodriguez McKibben
Community Activist and Professional in Non-Profit Leadership

"FVRLibraries chose to work with Share the Flame, LLC to develop an Anti-Bias Education Framework to support equitable outcomes in our Children and Family programming. Debi quickly recognized that, as an organization, we had significant foundational work to do to effectively process and heal from some of our collective experiences around a specific program that received a mix of community support and backlash. Our work with Debi allowed us to move forward as an organization by giving us the space and guidance to safely work through our missteps, helping to lead us to systemic healing. With Debi's help, we were able to clarify our intent behind offering programs designed to reflect the needs and aspirations of systemically non-dominant (Jenkins, 2018) communities through work in racial equity, and anti-bias education. The outcome of Debi’s efforts with us is a well thought out and crafted framework to guide staff in developing Children and Family programs with a firm foundation in Anti-Bias Education at the core."

Justin Keeler
Outreach/Community Partnerships Director

"Dr. Debi, You were terrific! For such a tough topic, you’re upbeat manner, gracious approach to self-assessment, and warm presence made it a safe and productive place with a practical and hopeful path forward. I want to especially thank you for talking about the lack of processing for white people. Growing up in the South with all relatives from South Carolina, I’ve wondered long and hard how some of my own family could think like they do. I understand now that the old ones- now passed- never had the awareness, ability, or opportunity to process what they saw and heard their whole lives despite the obvious evil of it all. I feel fortunate indeed to be in this place at this time where awareness, education, guidance, and opportunity are available by trailblazers such as yourself. Heartfelt thanks to you for that personal gift and for your vital contribution to our conference."

Tricia Pace
Community Health Supervisor and Racial Equity Health Conference Coordinator

"Debi was an excellent coach (one on one with individual members) and consultant (professional development training) for our team. She met us where we were, helped us dive more deeply into our identities and refine our goals. Her JEDI (justice-equity-diversity-inclusion) training session was moving, interpersonal, and interactive. Thank you Debi for caring for us, informing us, pressing us, and changing us!"

Carrie Kondor
Director of Education Linfield University

"Thank you for presenting for us! attendees loved the presentation! Here are some feedback on insights gained: an attendee shared in appreciation of Dr. Debi's own anti-oppression research that “I really appreciated the Ist of an Ism model/diagram!” In the reflection below, an attendee stated that they desired to now “overgrow the biases that I have is a new start to change and educate myself on the history [of the United States] and progress to overcome racism.” One attendee commented on the direction planned for their professional work with children and families, “Parent bonding should receive more focus in our care of families and included in prenatal education. [Therefore], it is so important to my work as an IBCLC to be always incorporating ways to stay educated and continue to listen and learn what I can do to dismantle systemic racism.” The following attendee shared a quote of Dr. Debi's that stood out for them most during the presentation, "In order to build equity and resilient spaces in our community we have to begin with ourselves in order to understand and make a change.” Thank you for collaborating with SW WA Healthy Families!!"
