Nichole, it has taken me a while, sorry! Its been super busy. Hope below is okay. Hoping you are well.

NAZ had the pleasure of working with Nichole McGill Higgins for our inaugural Global HIV Collaborative (GHC) meeting in September 21 which bought together Black HIV and LGBTQiA activists from the UK, Kenya, Ghana and the US to discuss the shocking disparities in HIV outcomes that face black communities globally compared to people of white ethnicity.

Throughout the lead up to the meeting Nichole was generous with her time with numerous pre meetings to ensure the process facilitated the outcomes we were looking to achieve. Her energy and relentless focus to keep us on task meant we had an inclusive and action and future focused meeting.

Although Nicholes experience was not rooted in world of HIV and sexual health she was able to use her expertise in race, diversity and inclusion to connect the different social justice movements and demonstrate the importance of distributive justice in her facilitation.

People were able to speak their truth and were committed to action. Thats what we wanted. Thank you, Nichole, for making our first meeting a powerful beginning.

"Nichole facilitated the session "Let's talk about Race" in February of this year and subsequently a couple of follow up training sessions on how we can become an organisation which better enables our colleagues to have difficult conversations about race.

Nichole is a passionate and powerful speaker and we were grateful to have someone of her calibre, knowledge and experience run these sessions for us. She was able to effectively set out a safe space and non-judgemental tone, where our colleagues felt able to ask challenging questions and share some of their lived experiences. I found what I learnt particularly illuminating and hope that we can continue to work with Nichole in the future as the response to her sessions was overwhelmingly positive.Anna Aleksandrowicz Assoc.

"Nichole delivered her incredible presentation, "Let's Talk Race," during my organization's inaugural Diversity & Inclusion week.

The preparation, the presentation itself, and Nichole's speaking abilities were outstanding. Every attendee learned and took away so much from the session (and they personally reached out to let me know). I would always recommend working with Nichole, but especially in terms of bringing her to speak or present as a subject matter expert. She is passionate, professional, and a thought leader. Thanks, Nichole!

Tope Ladeiobi Senior Project Manager (AgilePM | Certified Scrum Master | Prince2 Certified) Tope worked with Nichole in the same group

"I began working with Nichole some years ago when we co-chaired the Embrace group at CIPD. I knew then that the area of Diversity and Inclusion wasn't just an interest in Nichole. It was then and is now a passion and something she cares deeply about.

There is no doubt in my mind that Nichole has been the driving force behind the D&I agenda internally at CIPD, constantly at the forefront, championing and encouraging not only conversation but action too. Nichole has always led with integrity and professionalism all whilst navigating some very difficult conversations and mindsets. Nichole recently initiated a review of ways of working with a lens on race at CIPD. Working alongside a project team, Nichole delivered an insightful review which has already initiated promising change at CIPD something that I strongly feel would not have been achieved without her tenacity and once again, her passion. "Nichole delivered her incredible presentation, "Let's Talk Race," during my organization's inaugural Diversity & Inclusion week.
