"Everything went well; it was exactly the program that I wanted. I think both women did an awesome job and our students learned a lot and were able to engage with both Ms. [Harriette] Cole and Ms. Nelson before and after the event. We want both of them to come back..they were phenomenal!!"
"We were excited by her presentations and that she could be a part of our ongoing Diversity and Inclusion journey. Sophia shared interesting insights on the power of human “connection” in the 21st Century workplace and furthered our understanding as leaders and managers around this very important Land O’Lake initiative."
"She spoke on harnessing the power of human “connection” in the 21st Century workplace to move successfully beyond the barriers of race and gender. Her presentation wowed audiences of men and women alike, who attended in person and live via telecast internationally."
"She was a huge hit. She connected instantly with students of all backgrounds, gender, and region. Whether it was her keynote address to the community, lecturing in large classrooms, or conversing with small groups, Sophia displayed an amazing ability to engage students and faculty in a way we seldom see from speakers of her caliber."
"It’s inspiring to hear Sophia Nelson speak with so much passion about the critical issues that face our time. Hers is a much needed voice and one that will hopefully spark more meaningful conversations about the things that matter in our lives in the 21st Century."
