After previously learning Nadine’s story, passions, and work with Thriving TwentySomethings – the Triangle DEI Alliance invited Nadine to speak on a panel for Women’s History Month entitled “We Connect: Celebrating Women’s History in Color”. Nadine, a business owner and a woman of color, was an amazing partner that contributed to the success of this event.


Prior to the actual event – Nadine was very responsive, accessible, and flexible to our needs for the event. She provided all of the requested information in a timely manner and was a joy for our team to work with. The day of the event was phenomenal, in part because of Nadine’s participation. The entire panel, including Nadine, gave in depth, vulnerable, and brave answers to questions about their work, their lives and journeys, their challenges, and their hopes. Feedback on the event has been overwhelmingly positive because of Nadine’s willingness to share her story and share her expertise with others in the business community.


Finally – Nadine promptly scheduled a follow-up meeting for feedback. We discussed ways she can continue to work with us and we are looking forward to connecting more with her in the DEI space.

We look forward to all of the great things she and Thriving TwentySomethings are preparing to do!
