"We knew we didn’t have as much diversity in our system as we would like. We also felt that we needed to support the diverse student and staff population better than what we had been doing. We weren’t sure how to best approach the topic of inclusion. Then we found Michele Shelton. Michele has been great to work with as we chart a new course for diversity and inclusion in our schools."

“From the bottom of our hearts, again, thank you so much... Your open, vulnerable approach really opened up a great dialogue...and it was truly an honor to be a part of. You set the tone...to ask questions and share experiences they wouldn't have otherwise discussed...We truly left feeling so impressed and humbled."

“I had the privilege of attending Michele's diversity training she presented at our BGSHRM chapter meeting. The presentation was engaging and most of all thought provoking in a positive yet challenging way. I've used information I learned with others multiple times since then. I'd recommend her to others.”
Former Vice President, Spirituality
"Thank for you for today’s session. It was powerful, emotional, and moving. I know that this brought up racial trauma for many of our colleagues, and I know that it is exhausting. I feel outraged, sad, and activated and feel confident you will get people in the right space to do the work we will be asking of them! "

"I invited Ms. Shelton to speak to my Louisville Chapter of Kentucky Medical Group Management Association networking and professional development group. This group consists of mostly practice managers in the healthcare profession... She did an excellent job with her presentation.

"I have engaged Michele as my 'go to' subject matter expert on matters of diversity and inclusion. Her calm and thoughtful demeanor allows participants to engage with a "hot" topic like diversity with openness and curiosity, instead of judgment or defensiveness. Her trainings are also interactive; giving participants a valuable opportunity to learn in community with others. She always has great rapport with her audience."
