She has worked with hundreds of organizations across the country, including Pre-K education systems, colleges and universities, local and national nonprofits, foundations, financial institutions, religious institutions and for-profit companies. For her presentation, Broderick will discuss how groups can intentionally bring diversity, equity and inclusion to life in their mindsets and behaviors and as a lens through which all decisions are made.
