"Working with Amparo and the Yellow Cow team on our traveling exhibition, "Reinventing Reality" was delightful. They are professional, thoughtful, efficient and thorough. Not only did they meet the demands of translating our exhibition into Spanish and French, but they shared thoughts on the cultural interpretation, used colloquial language and impressed upon us the importance of inclusive language and accessibility. It was a brilliant collaboration."
"I am delighted to recommend Amparo Leyman Pino to lead DEAI work for your organization. She has worked with the Desert Botanical Garden for the past four years as our DEAI consultant leading workshops that leave everyone excited and energized. Her enthusiasm and knowledge in how to build cultural capacity is not only motivating, it has changed our understanding of the work we must do to be a diverse and inclusive organization. Amparo is an exceptional leader and a passionate DEAI partner for the Garden. "
"I feel fortunate to have worked with Amparo as a partner and guide when my team at the California Academy of Sciences was creating the museum's first multilingual exhibitions. Her deep expertise and enthusiasm for creating multilingual learning experiences helped our team navigate the unfamiliar parts of the process, complete a major new exhibition with all content in four languages, and establish practices that we were able to carry forward on subsequent projects."
"Amparo brings to her work a special combination of expertise, insight, personal mission coupled with deep conviction, empathy and heart. She has that rare gift of speaking and hearing important truths in a way that fosters trust, learning and understanding. At the same time, she is action-oriented and quite well-versed in the tools and processes necessary to achieve meaningful outcomes. For those who are truly interested in advancing DEIA, one could not ask for a better collaborator, catalyst and thinking partner."
"Amparo Leyman Pino is a highly experienced leader in the science communication field, with a unique track-record in the advancement of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion across all aspects and programmatic frameworks. She brings a very innovative mind-set and flair to science communication projects/programmes and is able to leverage linkages across global regions, creating synergies and adding value, and thus, maximising the impact and sustainability of initiatives. "
"Ampis has decades of working and developing curriculums for museums. Her CV is really extensive and sounds very fancy (…) but ultimately what I’ve experienced is that Ampis is the messenger between institutions and the minority communities. Her words she chose are simple and so accurate. She finds ways to ignite curiosity and have communities reflect in what they see and experience. To see their value reflected back to them"
"Amparo Leyman Pino is not only a professional and passionate education and museum consultant. She is also a hilarious stand-up comedian and storyteller who combines keen observation with kindness and enthusiasm. We were honoured to have her perform in 2014 at the opening ceremony of our pop-up science center „Knowledge°Room“ in Vienna, Austria."
" have worked with Amparo on multiple projects and I always find the future is bright, innovative, and fun with Amparo on the team. Amparo’s attention to culturally responsive approaches, relationship stewardship, and evidence-based education fuel organizational capacity-building. With excellent credentials, Amparo contributes a vast international professional network, outstanding communication skills, and as needed, stand-up comedy."
