Coming to enrich faculty and staff at the annual Launch event and other engagements on campus, OC's Imago Dei welcomes Jen Fry.
JenFryTalks is a social justice education firm that uses conversation to educate and empower those within athletics through an anti-racist lens on issues of race, inclusion, intersectionality, diversity and equity.
Social justice education assists everyone in their process of critically thinking of how to become culturally competent, how to self reflect on one’s position, power and privilege, and how to create an inclusive culture that allows diversity to be a part of the culture not BE the culture.
Jen Fry is a native of Arizona, a Division II athlete, and veteran volleyball coach with over 15 years of experience at the collegiate level with coaching stints at Elon University, the University of Illinois (2011 National Runner-Up), Washington State University, and Norfolk State University. She turned social justice educator when she realized there was a need for educating not only our student-athletes of all ages, but the administration, staff and coaches who train them through an antiracist lens on issues of race, inclusion, intersectionality, diversity and equity. Lastly, she is working on her Ph.D. in Geography at Michigan State University. Go Green.
