"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."
