Jeremy Phillips (www.jeremyphillipsconsulting.org) is an organizational change consultant who works in partnership with his clients to bring the best of themselves and their work forward to advance their vital social justice missions. Jeremy is a cis-gendered white male, who brings a racial justice lens and small “d” democratic commitment to his organizational change work.
His approach and guiding principles are of partnership, relationship and equity, with a focus on surfacing and leveraging strengths and possibilities rather than problems and deficits.
Jeremy has been a facilitator and trainer for mission-driven, social and racial justice organizations locally, nationally, and internationally for over twenty years. He became an independent consultant in 2004 in order to most effectively engage with and support real impact for his clients. Jeremy is the co-founder and co-leader of the Emerging Consultants Training, a project that seeks to support social justice leaders of color to engage in organizational development consulting in social justice and movement building spaces.
Jeremy came to organizational change consulting after 15 years working with young people in a variety of settings: from schools, to alternative placements, to out-of-school time. His work with youth primarily focused on helping them understand and act on their power and agency — in their own lives and in their communities.
