Kim C. D’Abreu is a seasoned leader in the non-profit space who brings 25 years of experience designing and managing national, impactful, workforce diversity and inclusion programs. As a credible thought leader within the education, healthcare, and non-profit sectors, she has built an impeccable reputation for managing the culture and complexities of environments.
Her expertise includes effectively developing tools, strategies, and written resources focused on climate and cultural competency as a means to promote the success of women, racial and ethnic minorities, LGBTQ communities, and other marginalized groups.

She believes we can all live in service and compassion to one another, to contribute to something larger than ourselves, and ultimately to create a more just and equitable space for all.
