What our clients have to say

Seena and her team have been invaluable thought partners and helped me build a robust, data-driven, and action-oriented DEI strategy for Jamf. I am grateful to work with her. We are having more consistent conversations about race and many leaders are leaning into conversations about how they can help build a more diverse and inclusive team and support and grow our BIPOC Jamf population.
— Anthony Papini, Jamf

“The work with The Woke Coach has changed me significantly. It has changed the way I approach my work as a leader and it has truly transformed how I see everything around me. It's a new lens by which I view the world.

Everyone on our team has stated how transformational the work with The Woke Coach has been to them personally, which was an incredible experience for all of us to go through together as a team. [We now] are able to hold each other accountable and apply an antiracist framework to everything that we do. We repeatedly step back and reflect on our language, the way we're showing up, and the role that we play as an organization.

[The work] has moments of discomfort and vulnerability, but that has strengthened the organization and the way that we all work together. Seena is an unbelievable facilitator that helps us challenge our norms and dig into the difficult work that will make us a better organization.”

Our team got to know each other in a much deeper way than we ever would have gotten to through our work with The Woke Coach. Our understanding of each other and of the lived experiences of our other employees have all broadened and also inspired us to be a more inclusive workplace.

“I really appreciated the direct approach that The Woke Coach facilitators took when discussing what it means to be antiracist and what it really means to be an ally. It is easy to have intentions but they really challenged our team to turn our intentions into actions. Their directness also really helped us have conversations that we never could have had without an outside facilitator. They really did create a brave space where people could be themselves and develop a new appreciation for other people's lived experiences.

It has galvanized my feelings towards action and motivated me to live my life as an active advocate for others. I have reflected on many different parts of my life where I could have said something that would have helped right a wrong or elevated someone's voice but I stayed quiet because I was more worried about what people would think about me. Now I embrace the very things I was worried people might think about me and I want to be THAT guy.

Our team got to know each other in a much deeper way than we ever would have gotten to through our work with The Woke Coach. Our understanding of each other and of the lived experiences of our other employees have all broadened and also inspired us to be a more inclusive workplace. Another unexpected impact on our organization was that everyone that was doing the Woke Work involved their families or children in some of the homework and conversations. It really bridged the work/life divide in ways we had not expected.”

This program 100% made me a better leader and manager. I’m able to engage in my workplace in a way I never thought possible. We have work to do, but now I know and deeply understand what that looks like. I’m so grateful.

“The Woke Coach facilitators are very encouraging, open and authentic. They hold us accountable without being judgmental.

It's opened my eyes so I see racism and white privilege and power so much more — both in how much/often it occurs through history, how much I see it now and how many different ways it is manifested.

The Woke Coach facilitators are very encouraging, open and authentic. They hold us accountable without being judgmental.

[Working with The Woke Coach] has put [our team] all on the same page, and we now speak the same language in how to talk about and address racism and privilege within our organization.”

Seena is a brilliant facilitator who holds the space and allows for everyones uniqueness, while speaking to the charge and breadth and urgency of the racial justice work that needs to be done.
