Partnering with the Project 2043 Institute on our antiracism educational initiatives has been invaluable. Julye is brilliant and most importantly, sincerely dedicated to racial equity and social justice. The ARPC remains grateful for her expertise. We look forward to continuing this necessary work together.
From the start of our collaboration, Julye felt like an integral part of our team, providing incredibly thoughtful and timely feedback on what we had so far, and proactively sharing ideas on important topics to cover based on our program goals. We especially appreciated Julye’s experience in the field of education and virtual exchanges, as well as her expertise in the topics of race, diversity, and social-emotional learning. Throughout our collaboration, she consistently offered perspectives from each of these areas in order to ensure the teacher training was comprehensive, relevant, feasible, and meaningful for educators
We contracted Project 2043 to design an innovative collection of resources to support our (educator) members in having conversations about race and racism with their students. The response has been tremendous — in the first six months, the resources have been downloaded over 13,000 times and reached over 400,000 students. Julye is a joy to work with. Her passion and experience shine in everything she does.
Julye Williams was an exceptional facilitator! I am forever in her debt for putting this project into focus for me. The conversations were safe, respectful, and moved our people to a kinder, gentler place around race.
Julye is a wise leader. She’s an incredible partner in helping companies deliver the inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility goals they set. Since she started The Project 2043 Institute, I’ve been repeatedly impressed with her ability to connect with organizations where they are and guide them to where they need to be to succeed today. I’m not surprised because I saw her gentle tenacity when we worked together years ago. Julye shares her expertise with a tone of quiet authority and she always makes me laugh. I’m a long-time fan and continue to cheer her on!
I had the great pleasure of working with Julye and her team on our firm’s Black History Month celebration. This is the second year our firm welcomed The Project 2043 Institute back. The content presented was impressive, thorough, and well-received. She provided great insight and perspective on the content, and her professional and memorable talent set the model that inspired learning and education that left us in awe. The feedback on her presentation was overwhelmingly positive and our team was extremely proud of her work. Highly recommended.
