My name is Adrienne M. B. Davis (she/her). I am a Durham, NC resident and the founder and lead coach for AMBDavis Equity Coaching, LLC. I collaborate with organizations and teams to build and support communities dedicated to honoring difference, reducing harm, practicing accountability, and amplifying people and groups living beyond the margins.
With over 18 years of experience supporting community and organizational DEI, social equity and organizational development efforts, I feel most at home coaching and empowering others to take a lead in their own learning, healing, and growth.
I began applying transformative and restorative practices in identity-related bias incident response while working in K-12 and higher education, local government and with a number of community and faith-based groups. I support individuals and organizations in different career fields, sectors, and organization types.
While navigating, often complex, incidents, I am frequently asked, “How did you learn to do this?” It’s not easy or simple work, and much of my practice development has involved a lot of self-teaching, community feedback, and trial and error.
There are some guidebooks and workshops available that discuss bias incident response and incident response teams, few opportunities exist to apply and practice skill development. Even fewer, if any, offer resources that people can reach out to for advising on recent or emerging incidents.
Coaching and interactive, experiential trainings build individual and organizational capacity to responded quickly, effectively and in meaningful ways. I am committed to supporting others as they take on this challenging and important part of co-creating equitable and inclusive communities, schools and workplaces.
I look forward to collaborating with you soon!
