JenFryTalks is a social justice education firm that uses conversation to educate and empower those within athletics through an anti-racist lens on issues of race, inclusion, intersectionality, diversity, and equity.
We facilitate conversation with small and large groups, athletic departments, athletic teams, staff, administrations, schools, affinity groups, identity groups and much 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..
We employ conversation to start discussing the tough topics at hand. Conversation, getting to know the person in front of you, and seeing the humanity in one another can make the hard conversations seem a little easier.
"I have had the privilege of listening to Jen Fry speak on multiple occasions. Jen is a fierce, passionate, and creative scholar. She has a great sense of humor, and brings energy and engagement to her presentations and writing that center around inclusion, diversity, and equity. Jen makes solutions practical, and I have been able to incorporate the material into the lives of the student-athletes that I serve. Most recently, I had the privilege of listening to Jen’s presentation on student-athlete fellowships. Not only did I retain new thought provoking knowledge; I left inspired to create new opportunities for my student-athletes."
Race, ethnicity, and sports will forever be intertwined. These workshops & trainings are a minimum of two hours and are designed and tailored to discuss a variety of issues on race, diversity, gender, inclusion, antiracism, athletics, power, privilege, and more.
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.
I specialize in assisting organizations, teams, staffs, coaches, administrators, athletes and others in finding ways to have uncomfortable conversations on race, gender, diversity, inclusion, social justice education, power, privilege and the effects on both those within the marginalized and dominant communities.
