Testimonials

At Habitat for Humanity, having a board with diverse perspectives is critically important to us, yet we have struggled to attract and retain a Board which reflects the diversity of the community we serve.  Our consultation with Nirupa Netram helped us to think differently about our Board recruitment process and offered tangible suggestions for improvement.  Additionally, she acknowledged areas in which we were on track, confirming where our energy and resources should be invested.

Becky Lucas - Chief Executive Officer, Habitat for Humanity of Lee and Hendry Counties, Inc.

We received tremendous insight and relevant, practical tips from our consultation with Nirupa on implementing diversity, inclusion and equity into our programming. Nirupa was thorough, truly helpful, and provided excellent suggestions that were both specific and local, addressing our needs as well as identifying our ‘blind spots’, so to speak. In just a one-hour consultation, we left feeling equipped to take actionable steps and make real change!

Megan Dalabes - Community Education & Development Coordinator, Abuse Counseling and Treatment, Inc.

Our leadership team met with Nirupa for a one hour consultation on enhancing our diversity efforts. Nirupa was very helpful in reviewing our current practices and offering suggestions. We are continuing to work with Nirupa on developing a more diversified Board. We appreciate her suggestions and expertise!

Julie Boudreaux - Chief Executive Officer, Children's Advocacy Center of Southwest Florida, Inc.

Nirupa Netram delivered an excellent presentation on “How Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Affect Your Bottom Line” to our Leadership SWFL class. Her interactive style allowed our participants to evaluate real life examples and examine our own subconscious behaviors. After her presentation our class continued to talk about the key takeaways and how they plan to implement changes in their workplace. I highly recommend her presentation to anyone looking to create a more inclusive workplace.

Christleen Knaub - Program & Events Manager, SWFL Inc.

Thank you Nirupa for conducting our Diversity Training program via Zoom. Our staff was highly engaged and the feedback we received from our staff was very positive. We appreciate your tailoring the program to meet our organization’s needs. We look forward to working with you in the future.

Mary C. Bartlett - Human Resources Manager, Habitat for Humanity of Lee and Hendry Counties, Inc.

Nirupa’s presentation on diversity in the workplace was poignant and eye opening. With concrete case analyses and current data, she clearly pinpoints diversity-related deficiencies within the legal practice and provides solid suggestions for improvement. We will certainly utilize her guidance to better our own practice.

Shanthy Balachanthiran, Esq. - Chair, Lee County Bar Association, Pro Bono Committee

Nirupa Netram researched, assembled and presented an outstanding workshop on the subject of “Interpersonal Violence – Human Trafficking Issues for Mediators and Attorneys” in a joint presentation to the Lee Bar Immigration Practice Section and Lee Bar Alternate Dispute Resolution Practice Section on April 8, 2021. She combines critically needed information about this many-faceted problem with a polished style that is very engaging.
