A Transformative Approach to Impact Response

Bias Impact Response incorporates transformative and restorative community practices into all incident impact response planning, support, coaching and training. This approach focuses on creating space for the impact identification, collective solution seeking, and community accountability that extends beyond the punitive.

“I thoroughly enjoyed my experience in this session. Adrienne did a wonderful job of facilitating and introducing this process. She did a great job of modeling care and authenticity. It was great that she added humor to the experience too.”–I.I.,doctoral student, Introduction to Transformative Communities
“When COVID-19 arrived in the U.S. in early 2020, my Asian American sons quickly became targets at their schools. Distraught and concerned for their safety (and of their classmates that looked like them) I immediately turned to Adrienne.
She was able to meet me where I was, listening actively to my concerns and connecting with me emotionally. She then offered clear, manageable, and concrete steps that I could take at each of my sons’ schools.” –G.C. Parent & school equity advocate
“This was great. I think the work you do is so important and I wish there was an Adrienne in every department!”–S.L, college staff member; Bias Impact Response: A Transformative Option
