"We are in a pivotal time in our country where we have the opportunity to change the status quo and unite as a community of entrepreneurs, to do what we do best, and solve serious and deep-rooted problems. Our hope is that these sessions will serve as a call to action for us as entrepreneurs to lead the way forward."

—Melissa Vincent, Executive Director, Pipeline

Our Session:

We invite all entrepreneurs, community members, and leaders to join us on September 22nd at 4:30 pm (CT) for our second session in our “Entrepreneurs Challenge the Status Quo” series.

In this session, Dr. Nicole Price will be leading the discussion aimed to inspire entrepreneurs and leaders in our community to cultivate culture by embracing differences, employing radical empathy, and by uplifting our shared humanity.

Meet our Speaker:

Dr. Nicole D. Price

Nicole Price believes that it is impossible to be a good leader if you cannot work with a 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. The philosophy is rooted in the idea that adults who are ashamed are adults who cannot learn. As such, her programs seek to reduce shame in order to increase learning.
