+ PEOPLE POWER
“Patrice is a trusted advisor who has helped me develop personally and has played a key role in helping me understand the political landscape impacting the African American community. She has a great understanding of the issues as well as a solution focused leadership approach. I’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with her in community forums addressing social & restorative justice, inclusion and equality. Her facilitation of these critical and often uncomfortable conversations is beyond reproach.
She has the unique ability of “listening to understand” in ways few can. Instead of overloading the audience (she’s usually the most prepared subject expert in the room), she has a way of communicating that even the folks in the back of the room can hear and take action. ”
