Instructor Specialty: Jamie has led thousands of seminars groups that address DEI issues directly related to current events in North America. Jamie brings a very special lens as they are a retired peace officer and have worked with fifty counties and studied the wide-ranging cultures within law enforcement around issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion. Jamie can navigate within all these environments and tailor the message to a specific audience.
Jamie has studied issues of diversity and inclusion their entire life and has hundreds of hours of training, specific to these issues including a year in an intensive Non-Violent Communication program in Oakland, CA working with many diverse and divergent groups. They have also studied under a multitude of diversity of subject matter experts and take related courses regularly to update their learning.
Jamie’s work in this capacity exposed them to many of the ways humans express their personal identity. Jamie also learned about the deep complexity of the human-being and how our basic human needs for equality and respect impact our actions. Jamie came to understand that only through a lens of intersectionality, can our goals of healthy, inclusive workplace environments for all be met. Jamie’s study and personal experience bring the “human” factor to these courses.
