CEO and Sole Member (pronouns: she/her)
As a Black girl growing up in Phoenix, Arizona, I keenly remember my sense of being "other". I also remember that even at a young age, I desired to understand others and be, what I did not know at the time was, inclusive. My mother always kept me informed about social history and present, and she was sure to keep me active in group settings and volunteering alongside her. Some of my most favorite memories involving non-family members is when we used to help others. I have remained consistent with that passion and increased my awareness of social issues and needs along the way. I love that I am still learning and that I can use my skills to help others. I empathize deeply with experiencing the recognition of personal privilege or discovering how I may have some how contributed to the oppression to another. Therein lies my deep compassion for others in this work.
I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge the new state in which we have to navigate personal and professional lives is complex at best. I have done anti-bias, anti-discrimination, diversity, equity, and inclusion work, for 19 years, and my passions have only intensified, especially throughout 2020.
I use my experience and skills to help organizations, teams, and individuals effectively understand and dismantle oppressive themes. I understand that working to address privilege, racism, oppression, and cultural supremacy is challenging. Working to understand, unpack these concepts is commonly challenging. I feel it takes an approach that is embracing, honest, and cemented in accountability.
Jasmine Snipes Consulting is a practice I established to fulfill my greatest hope of working alongside folx to help them acquire the knowledge, language, and skills they need to make impactful and long-lasting social and organizational change via racial equity and diversity, equity, and inclusion work. I truly believe we can create solutions that will create immediate, short-term, and long-term advancement. My consulting work with boards, executives, staff, agencies, and schools, is direct and supportive. I, like you, want to be a part of the change that dismantles racial inequity, racism, and oppressive forces.
