What I Offer
Individualized diversity, equity, and inclusion training and consulting that goes beyond “DEIJ” company or university requirements. I work with my clients to explain how institutions historically oppress underrepresented populations and how my clients can work together to provide a safe space for these marginalized groups. By providing support and individualized consulting, clients leave my workshops, presentations, and trainings with a heightened sense of self and purpose. The ultimate goal is that my clients feel empowered to enact change, starting from within.
I am a Mexican, Jewish, disabled woman with over 15 years of experience working with and for the disabled community. I have spent the past 9 years exploring how intersectionality impacts the disabled community and have worked with other underrepresented groups to explore how disability intersects with race, religion, gender, sexuality, socioeconomic status, etc.
As a woman with intersectional identities, I know just how difficult it can be to navigate in society without additional resources and support systems. My goal is to use my years of experience to help you and your organization use a social justice lens to promote equity, diversity, and inclusion. If you do not see a topic that resonates with you or your organization, please make sure to send me a message and I can develop a presentation based on your needs.

I have worked with Davi on Disability Rights issues for years and impressed with her knowledge, passion, and professionalism. She uses her own experience as a marginalized woman with a disability as the as the foundation to fully examine the systems that inhibit full access and inclusion to services for marginalized people with disabilities. Her lived experience combined with her formal education allow her to provide a wealth of knowledge and fresh perspectives to improve systems and create spaces that are more accessible and welcoming for all.

Dr. Kallman has a wealth of knowledge but is very good at making topics relatable and approachable for learners at all levels of experience. She effectively lays out foundational concepts and knowledge while being able to give in depth and detailed responses to questions from more advanced students.Luis Manriquez, MD Community Health Equity Director, Washington State University
Davi’s heart and passion goes into her work. She does everything 110% with empathy and exemplary leadership skills. I am privileged to see what one woman can accomplish. She removed bias and changed the hearts and attitudes of our campus through her awareness events and training.Jacqueline Schneider, MS, CRC
