Debbie is a leadership trainer, consultant, and coach, and a Jewish community-building veteran. In 2017, she co-founded diversity and inclusion consultancy TrustLab Ltd with Yasmeen Akhtar. TrustLab’s mission is to support people to unlock their own authentic leadership, as well as to take courageous steps towards building inclusion and equality. Debbie holds a degree in theology and religious studies from the University of Cambridge. Her expertise in diversity inclusion was honed over six years with leading intercultural NGO 3FF (Three Faiths Forum), designing and delivering interfaith learning experiences for adults and young people. Under Debbie’s leadership, 3FF’s programmes grew to reach 10,000 young people a year nationally, and won a UN Alliance of Civilizations Award for Intercultural Innovation in 2011. Her teacher training, ‘Controversial Issues in the Classroom’ emboldened 500 teachers a year to navigate conflict, complexity, and unconscious bias with their students. She has delivered training and speeches on intercultural work to thousands of people across the world - in the U.K., Berlin, Stockholm, Istanbul, Jerusalem, New York, and Yangon. In 2013 the Christian-Muslim Forum presented Debbie with an award for her services to the intercultural field. Having been deeply involved with emergent Jewish prayer communities in London including Grassroots Jews, Debbie is now co-chair of an innovative intergenerational ‘minyan residency’ – a year-long partnership between the nascent egalitarian Willesden Minyan and the established older community Shir Chayim.
