Jen Fry Talks
exploring the intersection of conflict and DEI.
Dynamic and Engaging Conversations
We provide dynamic and engaging content in a variety of formats, utilizing conversation and reflection to deepen learning. We work with small and large organizations, athletic departments, athletic teams, staff, administrators, schools, affinity groups, non-profits, governmental agencies, and more.
We use our antiracist lens to advise on best practices that will create equitable searches, hiring, onboarding practices, methods of retaining staff, retaining student-athletes, supporting student-athletes, staff and coaches, and community building.
Talking about race and identity can be challenging to start and tricky to navigate. That’s why we are committed to not only teaching about social justice but also helping folks build capacity for having and facilitating these tough conversations.
I believe in the power of conversation and storytelling to help educate and bridge the gap between people. I bring it. My keynote speeches are highly engaging speeches on a wide variety on topics that include rich visuals that will not only draw the participants in, but also empower them to take the next steps to continue working to be antiracist.
Workshops & training
I offer a variety of dynamic workshops and trainings, focusing on issues of race and antiracism, diversity and inclusion, power and privilege, conflict and communication, and more.
I specialize in assisting organizations, teams, coaches, administrators, athletes and others to identify the barriers to equity and inclusion that exist within their organizations, advising them on how to update and/or create equitable policies and practices, and working together to build the capacity for the difficult, necessary conversations that need to be had to make real progress.
Learning and growing doesn’t stop when you are at home. I’ve curated multiple courses and recorded previous webinars so there is always an available opportunity to grow, whether that be individually or with your team.
