PASSIONATE EDUCATOR. DYNAMIC FACILITATOR. INSPIRATIONAL LEADER.
Toni Woodlon, Owner of EdAlly Consulting, partners with individuals, groups, and organizations to positively shift culture through reflection, meaningful discourse, and shared learning experiences. Toni’s work to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initially began in schools and non-profits, and has shifted to span industries, as she has recognized that all people benefit from more diverse, equitable, and inclusive spaces.
Prior to consulting full-time, Toni spent 14 years in schools and districts as assistant principal, teacher, instructional coach, curriculum writer, and mentor. Toni has presented at local and national conferences, speaking with audiences about ways to help ensure educational equity for all students by using research-informed strategies for identifying and removing individual and structural barriers to student success.
In 2019, Toni spent 60 hours being trained as a Seeking Educational Equity and Diversity (SEED) facilitator, and has facilitated monthly ongoing learning experiences for cohorts of adult learners on a wide range of topics such as identity, systems of oppression, power and privilege, and more! Wherever she is facilitating learning or partnering to lead positive change, Toni utilizes a framework that involves high levels of engagement, collaboration, and storytelling.
Toni believes these components, especially storytelling, encourages people to lean in and allows them to recognize their common humanity, even while having courageous, and difficult, conversations. Toni is skilled at ensuring participants leave feeling inspired, connected, and equipped to move forward in their work in meaningful and transformational ways.
Lately, Toni has spent her time leading classes and workshops for people all over the United States, including ongoing cohorts that meet monthly. A personable and knowledgeable speaker, Toni has spent time facilitating in-service learning for members of the United States Navy, exploring implicit bias, microaggressions, and the impact on individuals and workplace culture.
