Re-introducing the Fabulous Deanna M. Jones!

Deanna and I sharing a booth at the recent Raleigh Pride Expo

If you plan to come to Out Raleigh Pride on June 22, do come by the Total Engagement Consulting booth to meet Deanna and to get some information about her expertise.

Late last year I announced that Deanna M. Jones (link to that announcement) would be joining Total Engagement Consulting with the intent of her taking over my business at the end of 2024. Now as we are getting closer to this transition, I am so impressed with all the great things Deanna has done over the past months and the key activities she has planned. I want to continue to introduce her to my clients and even have some of you engage with her this year.

Some of Deanna’s past accomplishment and activities:

• Last June, Deanna created and delivered a superb educational and interactive workshop for the Greater Raleigh Chamber of Commerce’s LGBTQ Pride “We Connect” event.

Deanna and other community leaders advocating for DEI at the NC State Legislature

• Deanna has co-presented several workshops with me on supporting transgender and nonbinary people in the workplace.         

• When I was out of the country on vacation, Deanna did a great job and provided a 2-hour LGBTQ “Safe Zone” training to one of my clients

• Deanna and I co-staffed the “Total Engagement Consulting / Deanna Jones Now” table at the 2024 Raleigh Pride Expo

• She has several LGBTQ+ Pride Month speaking sessions lined up for this June

• She testified in front of the North Carolina Legislature against defunding state DEI initiatives
