Working through Inclusion
Eddie, I want to thank you for an extra-ordinarily engaging and effective presentation at our divisional retreat this past Friday. I heard comments such as acknowledging how this was the best DEI session that they had ever attended. And I could not agree more!! The messages were very well received and I personally learnt so much from you.

“Dr. Pate- What an awe inspiring presentation that you gave my third-fifth grade leadership team at Garfield Elementary School in the Everett SD. You provided the students with just the right amount of information about what a leader is. You also set such an amazing example of servant leadership based on your life and work experiences. But most importantly, you left them knowing that each and every one of them can be a leader.”

Series Roadmap: Where is this journey taking us?
“Eddie is exemplary at what he does within DEI. His energy, passion and ability to make a connection with everyone he crosses paths with is inspiring. Whether he is talking one-on-one or presenting a training with hundreds of participants, he is able to make people feel seen and heard while meeting each of them wherever they may be in their journey and then brings them along with him. He is also able to take a complex topic and make it relatable to his audience which encourages open and honest dialogue as well as increases open-mindedness and curiosity. I feel privileged to have been able to partner with Eddie this past year on building out a DEI learning curriculum. Not only does the quality of his work speak for itself but I continue to grow as a DEI practitioner because of Eddie’s guidance and coaching.

“Through his work building and facilitating learning content on inclusion, diversity, and equity for my organization, Eddie has inspired me and my colleagues to act as change agents and speak up for inclusion. Eddie brings extensive knowledge, years of facilitation experience, data and case studies, powerful stories, and a sense of humor to his training courses, which makes for a deeply impactful learning experience. If you are seeking a leader, DEI subject matter expert and prodigious storyteller to inspire your organization, I highly recommend Eddie Pate."
