Jennifer’s flexibility in the moment and keen sense what “learners” need helps her successfully move teams to new understandings, habits and mindsets.  A great listener and collaborator, Jennifer models the “Yes, and . . .” spirit and champions a human-centered approach to working with audiences of all kinds.

Jennifer Bryan is one of the best presenters I’ve worked with in my career. Years ago I had the pleasure of meeting her for an in-house professional development workshop and we just hosted her at Tenacre for an AISNE workshop. Each time she conducted a master class in professional development for a room full of strangers on a challenging topic. She frames gender, sexuality, gender expression and other identity markers in an accessible way for her audience that has us all thinking critically about our school practices and how we care for the people in our communities. Her presentations are both thought-provoking and practical, offering equal opportunity for deep reflection and pragmatic planning. Participants new to the topics and those who arrive with some expertise all seem to gather helpful information from Jennifer. Her humor, kindness and openness all make her workshops fun, too. Jennifer’s presentations have enduring influence on me and my colleagues and I will happily and eagerly work with her again.
