2017 Conference Keynote

Maura Cullen has been referred to as being the best there is at simplifying the complex issues of diversity in an entertaining and educational manner. Since 1987, Dr. Cullen has been capturing the hearts and minds of people, with her dynamic seminars and speaking engagements throughout the United States, Canada and Australia. Maura is considered one of the foremost authorities on issues of diversity and leadership having worked with over 500 organizations with audiences ranging from eight to 8,000 people.
One of the guiding forces that led her to attaining her doctorate from the University of Massachusetts/Amherst in Social Justice and Diversity Education is her passion to make diversity training as engaging and enjoyable as possible. By utilizing her wonderful sense of humor and real life stories, she resonates with her audience without being aggressive or domineering.
Participants continually remark that Maura is “down to earth” and genuine, and though some may have initially resisted attending her program, they ended up enjoying it immensely. As one participant noted, “I was required to go to Maura’s session and without question I will never see things the same way again. It is a defining moment in my life.” She offers participants concrete ideas to make immediate and significant changes in their lives.
