  • Work with boards, departments or teams that are experiencing diversity-related tensions or conflicts or are stuck in moving the diversity agenda forward

"Dr. Shorter-Gooden was very effective in working collaboratively with me and our team. She is a thoughtful listener who took the time to understand our needs, then offer appropriate counsel. She is an expert facilitator who is able to break down the sometimes complex issues around diversity, equity and inclusion in a way that is extremely engaging to her audience."
