The CDC Employee Association of Emory Alumni (EAEA) invited Hermence to give a professional development workshop to our network and it was fantastic.

“I have been really impressed by Hermence’s ability to lead programs, share her knowledge, and to ensure everyone is engaged during the various capacity building skills development and cross-cultural communication sessions she developed and led. Hermence used role play, team exercises, and practical examples to emphasize key messages in her sessions and which made them very interactive. Hermence and her UBUNTU team of experts demonstrate passion for effective communication and skills acquisition in Public Health. As a result, global health workforce is transformed for the better.”

We are lucky to have worked in partnership with Hermence and her team at the U.S. Peace Corps. I am still inspired by her work ethic 10 years later. Without reservation, I can attest to the fact that Hermence and her team live and work by principles of inclusivity, respect for diversity, and appreciation for both big ideas and with an eye for little details - while elevating the voices of otherwise voiceless people.

"I worked with Hermence during the Ebola crisis in Guinea. While Peace Corps Volunteers had been evacuated from Guinea, our staff remained in place and an interagency agreement was signed to support the CDC. Hermence came to Guinea and helped lead training with WHO for contact tracing team supervisors and health workers in Conakry using her excellent French language skills. This training focused on risk communication skills to negotiate positive citizen cooperation. Pre and post-tests showed strong positive results, and participants reported essential work benefits. In sum, Hermence is a dynamic and effective trainer!”

“In Africa, there is a concept known as “ubuntu”- the profound sense that we are human only through the humanity of others; that if we are to accomplish anything in this world, it will in equal measure be due to the work and achievement of others.”
