Episode 5 - Exploring Cultural Proficiency with Kikanza Nuri-Robins

In this episode, I was blessed with the opportunity of exploring cultural proficiency with the wonderful and life-changing, Kikanza Nuri-Robins.

To read from her website:

[She makes clear that] our values declare who we want to be; Kikanza, helps people to close the gap between who they say they are and what they actually do.  Whether she is in a corporate boardroom, the fireside room of a retreat center, or a convention center auditorium, Kikanza uses her skills as a compelling speaker and compassionate listener to help people and organizations that are in transition – or ought to be.

Kikanza has been an advocate for justice, equity, and inclusion her entire career, serving mission-driven organizations across the country. She focuses on sustaining healthy organizational cultures by improving communication, developing effective leaders, and nurturing corporate values for cultural proficiency. 

Kikanza is the author of many articles and six books, including Cultural Proficiency and Fish out of Water. She lives in Los Angeles where she serves on the Bio-Ethics Committee of the UCLA Medical Center and the boards of several social-service organizations. She spends her discretionary time in her studio playing with color and textiles.
