Facilitation and Training
Suzanne took the time to deeply understand our program and consulting needs and then crafted relevant and thought provoking sessions that challenged and engaged participants in constructive conversations and rich learning about core issues related to our work.
- Maital Friedman, Program Director, Repair the World
Suzanne really has a gift for taking people through a very difficult discussion.
- Participant in Racial Justice Discussion Session
Suzanne facilitated a session at our MLK Racial Justice Retreat that was absolutely terrific and added so much to our weekend. It gave us a way to think about major concepts in racial justice work, and a chance to process a lot of our own emotional "stuff" that can get in the way of this work.
- Cheryl Pruce, Retreat Coordinator
Avodah hired Suzanne to guide us through a comprehensive process to take our work for racial justice to the next level. She was thoughtful and thorough in every stage of the process, from conducting research surveys and in-depth interviews with stakeholders to preparing and leading our task force, synthesizing findings and preparing materials for Avodah to take its next steps. She was amazing, smart and professional, and we're so grateful for her help.
- Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg, Rabbi in Residence, Avodah
Suzanne was a pleasure to work with. She brought creative thinking, a structured mindset, flexibility in working with me and my stakeholders and much more. She helped flag important questions that hadn't come up yet, checked in with me regularly and yet was independent. She was incredibly generous with her time and truly understood the challenges facing us. I can't recommend her highly enough!
- Abby Levine, Executive Director, Jewish Social Justice Roundtable
Suzanne's incisive questions helped me to get more clarity on the challenge I was facing, and she was amazing at getting to the heart of the matter in very little time. She really listened, and worked with me to identify a path forward that made sense for me and my organization. Suzanne uniquely balances a fiery commitment to social change with a calm, grounded and strategic approach to building and strengthening effective organizations.
- Catherine Bell, National Program Director, Keshet
Suzanne was a consistently efficient and communicative collaborator, and brought a deep knowledge of the social justice field to the production of our novel service-learning curriculum. She is extremely adept at building frameworks for students that encourage them to engage and reflect in their journey to effecting positive change in the world.
