Strategist - Coach - Advocate

Nicole Lee

nicole-c-lee-esq

I am a strategist, leadership coach and public policy advocate. My earliest memories are fulfilled with moments that have committed me to social justice for a lifetime.

As a child, I would lobby my friends to putting on “We Are the World” concerts to our neighbors. It’s a part of who I am. In my career as an international human rights lawyers, I was the first female President of TransAfrica, an historic foreign policy organization. I led missions documenting human civil rights violations against brave individuals and families seeking justice often against impossible odds.

What I learned from that work is that each of us can be brave, courageous and visionary. Each of us can also give into our worst fears and settle for the life we have rather than the life we want.

Accomplishments:

  • Founder of the Lee Bayard Group, LLC, a consulting firm specializing in diversity and inclusion and public policy in Washington, DC
  • Over 10 years consulting with organizations, schools, families and individuals about issues of bias and equity
  • Testified before Congress, the United Nations and the Organization of American States and continues to provide on the ground perspective and strategies to achieve human and civil rights
  • Co-founder of BMLP that provides legal and strategy assistance to social justice advocates, protesters and organizations

Courageous Conversations With Children

This program takes place over a four-week period with live classes taught by Nicole Lee. Each class is 75 minutes long and encourages class participation. While we prefer live participation, each class is recorded for future use. Here is what we cover in each class.

Have these questions crossed your mind?

  • Why should I talk to my children about race? Isn’t that racist?
  • How do I talk about such big subjects with such a little person?
  • Am I prepared to handle a racial slur said by my child when I do not raise my child to speak that way?
  • How do I navigate issues around race, religion and gender?
  • How do I create an atmosphere where my child can benefit from diversity?
  • I think I am on the right track, but I wonder what other parents are saying/doing.

TESTIMONIALS

  • -Desiree Adaway, The Adaway Group

    Nicole Lee’s coaching was just what I needed and the best part was I did not even know I needed it.  She helped me get crystal clear on what I wanted, what I needed and helped me create an action plan that totally supported accountability and growth.

  • -Tanay Harris, Mommy Up

    Nicole’s wisdom, insight and wittiness have been invaluable to my motherhood journey. She is a wise soul who fuses together her passion for justice with raising our parent consciousness and creating a better world and pathway for our children. Her lively discussions and truth telling, are a must for any parent who has ever doubted themselves. You will feel deeply understood and empowered. Nicole is truly a beacon of light.

  • -Brian Concannon, Executive Director, Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti

    Nicole is highly skilled at leading constructive, respectful discussions on controversial issues. She is also very good at helping others develop the empathy and strategy they need to discuss issues they care about with people who care about them differently. I regularly prepare for difficult meetings by channeling my inner Nicole–her advice and strategies invariably make the discussions more enjoyable and productive.

  • -Ericka Hines, Every Level Leadership

    Sometimes empathy does have boundaries. I just got off the phone with Nicole Lee who coached me on an uncomfortable situation in my personal life when I had the chance to teach someone about racism and stereotype but I opted out of confronting them. Nicole framed my response in the best way: she said in your work (as a diversity,equity and inclusion practitioner) you have to be highly empathetic to help people like you do… But you need to have a balance and a choice that you don’t always have to be that person in your personal life.
