Show Notes


Nanci Luna Jiménez is recognized regionally, nationally, and internationally for her highly effective and insightful training, inclusive facilitation, and dynamic speaking with groups of diverse ages, industries, and cultural backgrounds. She founded Luna Jiménez Institute for Social Transformation (LJIST) in 1994 to design and deliver programs to encourage individuals in their process of personal transformation, releasing individual initiative to create a more just and equitable workplace and world.

Nanci facilitates individuals and groups to look freshly at where they might be stuck while supporting them to make transformational changes they envision through: personal healing, cross-cultural communication, group consensus, organization inclusion, and short- and long-term planning and implementation.

Of Puerto Rican and Chicana heritage, Nanci was born in Detroit, MI, and raised in Detroit and Tucson, AZ. Nanci thrives doing Bomba—an Afro-Puerto Rican dance and drum tradition—traveling, hiking, weight lifting, training for half marathons and practicing yoga—on and off the mat.
