Nirupa Netram’s presentation at our 2023 workforce diversity, equity and inclusion conference was excellent. Her insights and strategies were invaluable, and our attendees were fully engaged throughout. The feedback we received was overwhelmingly positive, and many attendees have expressed their intention to bring what they learned back to their organizations. I highly recommend Nirupa for any organization seeking to improve their diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts.

Steve Bent - CAE, Executive Director, International Association of Workforce Professionals

My recent partnership with Ms. Nirupa Netram, CEO of Lotus Solutions LLC, was a refreshing experience in professionalism, dedication to excellence and served as an outstanding example of Nirupa’s care and concern approach to “client-forward” content design, development, and delivery. If your organization seeks innovative consulting solutions to increase the value of your organizational efforts, look no further; Lotus Solutions LLC will deliver on time and target.

Jenny Boyd - President, American Advertising Federation of Southwest Florida

“Walk softly and carry a big stick.” Those words come to mind every time I work with Nirupa on a client engagement. Whether it’s conducting Key Informant interviews or training on Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, Nirupa’s quiet, elegant approach to helping individuals or corporations make sustainable change is unwavering. Her insights into human behavior and her ability to gently and lovingly coach the better nature within each of us is on full display when she is working with your team. I highly recommend engaging her in strategy, JEDI, or leadership skill development training. The world needs more Nirupa’s doing this “heart” work and “hard” work.

Yolanda Webb - CEO, WEBB Advisory Group

I worked with Nirupa to develop an allyship program for senior executives in the outdoor industry. Her insight, experience and guidance were invaluable in creating a program that would exceed the expectations of senior executive leaders. She always provided direct, actionable feedback that helped us to develop and deliver a high-impact and engaging program. Whether consulting, leading or building, Nirupa’s DEIB expertise and understanding how to meet people where they are, were always hallmarks of her approach. Honored to have worked with her, learned from her, and look forward to the next opportunity.

David Smith - Associate Professor at Johns Hopkins University Carey Business School

Nirupa Netram is a remarkably skilled and experienced thought leader and practitioner in the broad areas of diversity/equity/inclusion and culture change. I had the privilege of collaborating with her directly as a speaker and consultant for over a year in an initiative to build inclusive leadership skillsets in the outdoor industry. Nirupa leads with sky-high emotional intelligence, natural thoughtfulness, and a bias for inclusion and belonging for all participants! I highly recommend her and her team at Lotus Solutions.

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.

Nirupa Netram is beyond brilliant. Her leadership skills are priceless. When I need someone to talk to some of my companies on Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, the first name that pops into my head is Nirupa. She is passionate about what she does and has the background as a lawyer to help any company grow. The value that she will add to any corporation is priceless!

Jeanne M. Sweeney - CEO, Above Board Chamber of Florida

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.

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.

Nirupa’s presentation on diversity in the workplace was poignant and eye opening.

We will certainly utilize her guidance to better our own practice.

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.

Anne Dalton, Attorney, Mediator, and Arbitrator - Chair, Lee County Bar Association, Alternative Dispute Resolution Practice Section

Nirupa gave an excellent presentation to our group of marketing and advertising professionals! She does her research, presents fact-based information, and takes the time to break it all down and answer the hard questions. If your workplace needs a DEI training or consultation, look no further!

Jesi Cason - CEO, Jesi Cason Photography

Nirupa is a DEI Champion with a niche for mentoring. As a newbie to the space, she welcomed me with her wisdom and extensive knowledge in the field. Her ability to lead with empathy and compassion is unmatched. Happy to have served alongside her in my journey.

LaCheryl Ameer-Bey - DEI Program Manager, Camber Outdoors

I have worked with Nirupa for the last three years as a member of the IAC, SMMC (Inclusion Allies Coalition, Social Media Marketing Committee). Nirupa has the knowledge, experience and talent to resolve conflict as it relates to demographic differences and reduce tension. I admire the way she educates those around her and gets people to look at and address their biases. She is a savvy business person. Nirupa has demonstrated her ability to break down diversity concepts to those who may not understand and use her real life experiences to create empathy and understanding. I love working with her.

Simma Lieberman - DEI Expert and Podcast Host
I would absolutely recommend Nirupa as a coach to anyone who is seeking guidance in career development or interview prep. I worked with Nirupa both in her capacity with Camber Outdoors in a mentorship facilitation and most recently she helped me prep for an interview with an international nonprofit. She is thoughtful, and gave clear advice.
CJ O'Reilly - Fundraising and Nonprofit Professional
Nirupa Netram from Lotus Solutions LLC did an outstanding job as she moderated a panel discussion for the Level HER Up Women’s conference. Her questions were obviously well thought out for the subject of breaking barriers and diversity for women in our workforce. She was serious when appropriate and was able to lighten the discussion with her lovely sense of humor! The session could have continued throughout the day with the excitement and engagement filling the room of over 300 women leaders in our community. We will gladly (ok beg her) have Nirupa Netram back for our conference next year.
Sally Brumfield, CSA - Development Director, The Legacy Foundation at Shell Point Inc.

Nirupa is definitely the person you need to call if you need help with your organization’s DEIBA efforts. Nirupa has such in depth knowledge and is so approachable. She is someone you need to help with the difficult conversations.
