On March 4, 2021 the Junior League of Greensboro welcomed Nicole Smith, founder and CEO of JMS Creative Leadership Solutions for a presentation on Inclusive Leadership. The virtual event was hosted by The League’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Task Force.

Nicole is a best-selling author, speaker, facilitator, and empowerment coach. Information about her many accomplishments, services, and resources are detailed on her website. Her books, “20 Golden Leadership Nuggets” and “Shut ’em Down: Black Women, Racism and Corporate America,” are also available on her website for purchase.

Over 40 League members attended the virtual event to discuss what it means to be an inclusive leader. Nicole reminded participants of the key competencies of these leaders including treating everyone with respect and fairness, recognizing your own biases, and seeking connections with diverse individuals.

We were delighted to host Nicole and we look forward to future events from the DE&I Task Force!
