"SHE WAS THE PERFECT COACH. HER QUESTIONS CUT THROUGH MY LAYERS OF INSECURITY AND I GREW IMMENSELY AS A LEADER DURING OUR WORK TOGETHER. "

"As a brand new president and CEO of a social justice nonprofit, I engaged Patricia for help in the areas of fundraising and staff management. She was the perfect coach. Her questions cut through my layers of insecurity and I grew immensely as a leader during our work together. She listened attentively and always seemed to know what questions to ask to get me to an "aha" moment about my leadership. 


Her coaching was honest, forthright and constructive. Patricia always had my goals in mind. My sessions with Patricia always left me feeling more competent and empowered. As a result, I have a sense of excitement about my leadership and the organization. I could not recommend her more highly as a coach." 

Marie Alford-Harkey, President & CEO, Religious Institute

"SHE HELPED ME SEE MYSELF MORE DIMENSIONALLY, RECOGNIZE THE WORK I NEED TO DO AND THE DECISIONS I NEED TO MAKE AND LED ME THROUGH PRACTICAL EXERCISES THAT CATALYZED THIS SELF-KNOWLEDGE INTO REAL, PRACTICAL CHANGE."

Patricia helped me tap into my own joy and compassion--I think this is the essence of what she’s about. Her coaching style and skill set are particularly flexible and responsive. She helped me see myself more dimensionally, recognize the work I need to do and the decisions I need to make and led me through practical exercises that catalyzed this self-knowledge into real, practical change. This coaching experience truly transformed how I work as a leader, how I lead myself, and how I make decisions. I feel empowered, I trust myself more, and my path is more clear. I cannot recommend this experience highly enough!

"SOPHISTICATED UNDERSTANDING OF THE WAYS RACE, GENDER AND CLASS INTERSECT IN THE LIVED EXPERIENCE"

I can personally attest to Patricia’s gifts as she hired me 15 years ago and, through exceptional leadership and coaching, helped me carve out a sustainable career in social justice philanthropy.  Since then, it’s been an honor and joy to work with Patricia as a colleague and have the opportunity to utilize her as a leadership development coach for my own grantees across multiple fields including reproductive justice, HIV/AIDS and LGBTQ equality.  Her unique approach and sophisticated understanding of the ways race, gender and class intersect in the lived experience of our most talented advocates and activists sets her apart from others.  Patricia never fails to help leaders truly discover their voice and evolve into a more confident and impactful version of themselves.

-Desiree Flores, U.S. Director, Social Justice, Arcus Foundation

"I HAVE A DEEP RESPECT AND ADMIRATION FOR PATRICIA’S LEADERSHIP STYLE, WHICH IS AFFIRMING, COLLABORATIVE, AND HIGHLY EFFECTIVE. "

"Patricia Jerido is a fierce social justice advocate who has cultivated a vibrant and balanced life during her twenty+ years in the non-profit sector. Her personal integrity and strong sense of self allow her to truly live her values. I have a deep respect and admiration for Patricia’s leadership style, which is affirming, collaborative, and highly effective. Patricia shows up in any space in an authentic way. She actively promotes gender and racial justice in her life and brings a strong anti-oppression lens to personal growth and social change. Like any good New Yorker, Patricia keeps it real – I can always trust her to give me candid and constructive feedback, but she always does so with kindness and compassion. Patricia has a gift for listening deeply, asking insightful/thought-provoking questions, shedding new light on an issue, and offering encouragement and support. Patricia has an incredibly positive and effervescent personality. Her smile and laugh are contagious and I always feel happy while spending time with her. Patricia’s quick wit, curiosity, encyclopedic knowledge of pop culture and politics, and unparalleled baking skills make her a joy to be with."
-Maggie Corser, Center for Popular Democracy

"PATRICIA LIVES THE BALANCED LIFE SHE ADVOCATES FOR OTHERS—AND AS A RESULT IS ONE OF THE MOST RELAXED AND PRODUCTIVE PEOPLE I KNOW..IF YOU’RE THINKING ABOUT LEADERSHIP COACHING, YOU’RE IN THE RIGHT PLACE."

"Patricia is a brilliant coach and strategist, and one of the most creative thinkers I’ve ever known in our movement for social justice. She has a unique capacity to see more than most people see, which then allows her to make deep and nuanced connections, and to translate her analysis into concrete action. She is also one of the most respectful people I know; she genuinely cares about what other people think and say (which is probably why she has such a big scope of vision). In the decade and a half that I’ve know her, Patricia lives the balanced life she advocates for others—and as a result is one of the most relaxed and productive people I know. She’s kind, warm, probing, insightful, and effective—and funny as hell. If you’re thinking about leadership coaching, you’re in the right place."
- Jenny Levison , Film and theater artist, and VP of Marketing and Development, Race Forward

"PERSONALLY, POLITICALLY AND ORGANIZATIONALLY, I HAVE BENEFITTED IMMENSELY FROM WORKING WITH PATRICIA, AND I’M THRILLED TO SEE HER NOW OFFERING THAT OPPORTUNITY TO OTHERS."

"I have worked with Patricia Jerido for over a decade. In these years I have known her as an activist colleague, my granting program officer and, most recently, the chair of the board of directors of the organization I co-direct. Over all this time and in all these roles Patricia continues to impress. I have met no one who can combine creativity with commitment in a way that she does. Patricia has her feet on the ground, deeply rooted in social movements  and grassroots activism, but her head is always looking up: noticing new developments in popular culture, social history, organizational theory, and then thinking about how these currents might be applied to the hard work of making the world a better place.


Her combination of creativity and commitment is unbeatable. Personally, politically and organizationally, I have benefitted immensely from working with Patricia, and I’m thrilled to see her now offering that opportunity to others."

"...SHE LOVES PEOPLE AND DEEPLY BELIEVES IN THEIR CAPACITY TO CREATE THE WORLD WE NEED TO SEE."

Few people are as effective at nurturing social change makers and their ideas as Pat Jerido. Pat not only clearly loves what she does, and is at one with her purpose in life, but most importantly, she loves people and deeply believes in their capacity to create the world we need to see. And, she is singularly renowned for it. From conception to actualization, grassroots to global, community organizations to international foundations, Pat has been and continues to be there, wherever the next horizon is, wherever she is needed. In my own work, she has been an incomparable guide.
