Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Officer for the Kansas Department for Children and Families (DCF)
Brandi Turner is our first embedded Everyone A Leader® facilitator. As the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Officer for the Kansas Department for Children and Families (DCF), Brandi helped TeamTech to develop a DEI-focused curriculum, based on EAL, but tailored to focus on the experiences of people of color. “People of color don’t always feel included in the workplace, and often don’t receive the encouragement to become leaders,” Brandi says. “This particular EAL training is designed to give them confidence to confront these unique barriers and adopt practical tools for transcending them.”
Brandi is currently working within DCF to provide this tailored EAL to staff, as she continues her training to become a certified facilitator in the full EAL curriculum. EAL’s DEI training is currently available only to DCF and other state agencies. Click here to learn more.
Brandi has 10 years of service with the State of Kansas, seven of which have been with the Kansas Department for Children and Families. Brandi studied Spanish as an undergraduate at Washburn University in Topeka, KS, and received her Masters in Healthcare Leadership at Friends University in Wichita.
