Shay Orent, IMPACT Boston

Shay Orent
Shay Orent is an IMPACT Empowerment Self-Defense instructor of 5 years. When Shay started with IMPACT, she was volunteering as a rape crisis counselor and hoping to launch a career that would allow her to engage in a movement of broad social change while doing meaningful work with individuals, but did not yet know what that career would look like. Since becoming an IMPACT instructor, Shay has taught classes to a wide variety of populations, including kids and teens of all genders, teens and adults with intellectual disabilities, and women surviving through sex work. She co-developed an abuse prevention curriculum for adaptive athletes; she also developed a healthy relationships curriculum for teens that helps them identify sexual coercion and problematic power dynamics, solidify their boundaries, and question cultural messages about gender that put them at risk. She lives in Boston, Massachusetts with her cat, Maebeline.
