S.O.G.I.E. and Allyship: Building a Culture of LGBTQ Inclusion
In the 12th EAMC @ Home Session, Kate Bean will “sit down” with Human Rights Campaign Senior Vice President of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Nicole Cozier. As part of EAMC’s continued commitment to diversity and inclusion, this session will explore LGBTQ terminology, the act and practice of allyship, as well as how to build a culture of inclusivity within your organization.

Nicole has more than 20 years of non-profit experience in the direct service, advocacy and philanthropic sectors. Most of Nicole’s career has been focused on gender equity; however, in the words of Audre Lorde – “there is no such thing as a single-issue struggle, because we do not live single-issue lives,” so a lens of diversity, inclusion and cultural competency has always been a central component of her work. Nicole describes her current position as the head of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at the Human Rights Campaign as “a perfect culmination of her experience and her passion for work with deep personal significance.” In her role as Senior Vice President of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, Nicole is responsible for designing and implementing strategy and initiatives that translate diversity, equity and inclusion philosophy and into core organizational practice.

Immediately prior to joining HRC, Nicole spent 8 years on the staff of Washington Area Women’s Foundation in various positions, the last of which was as Chief Operating Officer. Cultivating excellence among staff and maintaining an organizational environment where staff could thrive was a core priority in this role in addition to the development and cross-organizational implementation of the organization’s strategic goals.

Nicole is a Certified Dare to Lead™ Facilitator, a certified administrator for the Intercultural Development Continuum (IDI), and a Certified Diversity Executive (CDE).
