With her business and brand being The Communication Strategist, she is certainly that personally and professionally. She offers different perspectives to personal and professional growth that helps shape you into the true leader or entrepreneur you want to be. Dorothy has been a tremendous help in the facilitation of our RISE program. She works with the entrepreneurs in our program discussing everything from marketing, branding, pricing, mission and vision statements, purpose, and pitching your business. She is truly great at what she does and has left an everlasting impact on the entrepreneurs she has taught.
Working with Dorothy has been a great experience. She is always prompt, efficient, and produces great outcomes for whatever you may need as it relates to bringing the absolute best out of people. It’s a true pleasure to work with Dorothy and experience the awesome works of The Communication Strategist. Whether in a non-profit, corporate, or personal setting, I highly recommend Dorothy for your facilitation needs in leadership, personal and professional growth, and entrepreneurship. You will not be disappointed!

If you are like me and still reeling from the event yesterday, we are not alone. I wanted to share just one of the many emails we received about the event. Please see below.
“I thought the class today was the best diversity and inclusion class I have attended to date. I was dreading it going in, expecting yet another lecture about my white privilege yada yada yah. I was so wrong. Dorothy Enriquez is an excellent speaker, kept everyone engaged and actually got me to pay attention and lower my defenses. Thank you for including us in this opportunity.”
Thank you! Thank you! We absolutely enjoyed hosting the event and after hearing feedback like this, it’s safe to say others did too! Special shout out to Debbie, Phoebe, and the AAKC Diversity & Inclusion Committee for all your hard work! Also, to Jillian at Valet Living for the generous sponsorship. We couldn’t have done it without each of you! Here’s looking to a future of being brave! #aakc #diversityandinclusion #yourrighttowin

Going off of relationship building, I think talking about professionalism at work and knowing how much information to disclose/reading the room to know when it’s ok to be informal would be helpful!
Dorothy helped to answer questions that I didn’t even have yet – it was super helpful & would like to know if we’ll be able to finish out some of the topics we didn’t get to last time since we wasted time.
Reach Counseling has had the pleasure of working with Dorothy for the past 9 months. During that time, Dorothy has led our agency through a meaningful and impactful diversity, equity and inclusion journey. Dorothy inspired and educated our team through her sessions and coaching. As a result, our team learned that effective organizations promote inclusion by (1) continually attending to inclusion dynamics; (2) clearly articulating norms and expectations related to inclusion; (3) role-modeling inclusive behaviors; and (4) holding others accountable for engaging in inclusive behaviors. Dorothy has taught us how to be intentionally inclusive. I highly recommend Dorothy to any agency that is looking to take action and be successful in their diversity, equity and inclusion efforts! We will continue to consult with Dorothy as our team and organization evolves into the future
