University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee
“Dr. Prewitt-White led my undergraduate students through a thought-provoking, interactive session on privilege and intersectionality. With skill and kindness, she facilitated meaningful discussion and reflection on topics including race, gender, social class, and disability. Dr. Prewitt-White’s openness helped students feel comfortable in sharing their own thoughts and experiences.”

Minorities in Healthcare Mentorship Program
"Dr. Tanya Prewitt-White has taken our small organization to the next level with her annual workshop, Mentorship Through the Lens of Privilege, Race, and Cultural Differences. She leads without judgment, inviting all of us to reflect on our own life experiences while developing empathy towards others around us... The mentors are more prepared to work with students whose backgrounds differ from their own because of the confidence and resources with which Dr. Tanya has equipped them. We are indebted to her for her passion, tenacity, and selflessness. We truly believe that champions like her can further develop more just, equitable, and self-aware professionals."

"The work Dr. Prewitt-White does is so invaluable. Coaches really don't know how to deal with most trauma, and are not equipped to recognize trauma induced behaviour or inaction. We will never be able to change this culture of male dominance and female subjectivity until people are truly educated on the lasting harm it inflicts and this is what you do."

"Dr. Prewitt-White was one of the highlights of our event, many coaches and student-athletes commented on how much they learned from her and appreciated her time with them. We often overlook the attention that needs to be met for our social emotional needs during competition, Dr. Prewitt-White brought a focus for our female athletes' belief in one's self as well as being present in the moment of competition. We are very grateful for her time and energy for taking care of the individual and bringing the best out of each one of us."
