Dr. Nika White is a national authority and fearless advocate for diversity, inclusion, and equity. As an award-winning management and leadership consultant, keynote speaker, published author, and executive practitioner for DEI efforts across business, government, non-profit and education, Dr. White helps organizations break barriers and integrate inclusion into their business frameworks.
“I’m excited to lead the work of Walker’s Legacy in the Greater Greenville area and look forward to the mission of this national organization permeating the local market in a meaningful way to impact the lives of multicultural women,” said Dr. Nika White, Greenville City Director at Walker’s Legacy.
“Walker’s Legacy understands that the power of our organization comes from the power of the community that we work hard to build every day,” said Natalie Madeira Cofield, Founder & CEO, “Extending our programming to local markets provides an opportunity to take our digital engagement off-line through meaningful programming and encourages the development of local ecosystems of support that are critical to the women we support. We look forward to working with Nika White to provide much needed programming, content and engagement to this often overlooked community of enterprising women.”
Dr. Nika White is one of ten (10) Walker’s Legacy City Directors selected from a national call which garnered a pool of more than 100 talented applicants. Selected leaders will aid in furthering the Walker’s Legacy mission in their local business communities through impactful in-person programming and local engagement.
In recognition of March, Women’s History Month, national Walker’s Legacy City Directors will host Meet Your Match, a mentor matchmaking event. This national programming promotes direct networking, mentorship, and engagement with successful business leaders hosted in partnership with SCORE, the nation’s largest network of expert business mentors, with more than 10,000 volunteers in 300 chapters.
