"Re:Frame [provides] essential resources for anyone interested in truly making a difference in their own work [...] To have the benefit of such vital insights from someone with such vision for the future, as well as such deep experience regarding how best to work in tandem with others to make change, is truly invaluable.

Emile is organized, charismatic, a team player, and a fantastic writer and narrator [...] There's no better way to understand what changes need to occur on an issue than through the lens of someone who has experienced it and developed constructive critique and alternatives that are useful. Emile is that person, and Re:Frame is an excellent choice.

Working with Emile is inspiring. His intelligence and knowledge of the way systems and culture impact people are invaluable. He describes the interplay in a way that illuminates relationships, and [he] supported my learning. He knows his stuff! More than anything he is real and genuine. Emile leads with generosity and passion.

University of San Francisco

The experience of working with Emile was transformative. It has expanded my empathy, encouraged me to pay attention where I had not, and has better helped me examine the forms of gatekeeping in the realms of art and education. The impact of his leadership and his words continue to reverberate in the gallery and University.
