Webinar: Diversity and Inclusion Strategies for Nonprofit Leaders

Tuesday, June 9 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm • Organized By Nonprofit Connect
Online Event



In the middle of a pandemic, it is easy to forget the importance of culturally responsive leadership. Yet, homogeneity and exclusion can negatively impact your agency in the short and long term. How can you keep your diversity and inclusion values front and center during this time of rapid change and ambiguity?

Dr. Nicole D. Price, Owner of Lively Paradox, joins us to share her practical solutions, built on evidence-based research, to incorporate diversity and inclusion strategies during these times. In this presentation, Dr. Nicole Price will:

  • Challenge conventional wisdom related to diversity and inclusion practices;
  • Demonstrate culturally responsive coaching that can be used with your staff and other stakeholders during COVID-19 and beyond; and
  • Provide tips for how to access confidential support to help you maintain your own sanity as a leader during these challenging times.


Nicole Price believes that it is impossible to be a good leader if you cannot work with difference. Being at the mercy of failed diversity and inclusion initiatives for years, she set out to “shake the gates” in her own way by founding Lively Paradox. Her energetic and engaging sessions leave participants with strategies and specific tools that they can apply right away. Her lively presentation style garners rave reviews and, very often, an invitation to return.

Nicole received her B.S. in chemical engineering from North Carolina A&T University, her master’s degree in adult education from Park University, and her doctorate in leadership and management from Capella University.
