(AT THE HELM)
CEO, L’Monique King...
If you believe that old “sticks and stones” saying is a lie and that words can hurt, you also know that words can heal. In today's world words truly have the ability to make or break reputations and businesses. The good news is, with the right words and strategies language also has the ability to ignite growth and development. That's where I come in.
I am a skilled Strategic Outcome Facilitator who methodically uses language to foster that transition. As an Advocate, Educator and Author, (originally from New York and residing in Charlotte, North Carolina) I earned my bachelor’s degree in English, minored in Black Studies and obtained a graduate certificate in Gender, Sexuality & Women’s Studies from UNCC (the University of North Carolina Charlotte).
Through data driven DEI [Diversity, Equity & Inclusion] presentations and training I use my gift of creating rapport through conversation and multimedia presentations to foster equity and growth through enlightening speaking engagements and customized professional development workshops.
Through marketing and targeted social media campaigns, I adeptly utilize creativity and stellar content creation to produce culturally appropriate and demographic focused products that merge images with words to spread your message, reinforce your brand and strengthen your customer base.
As an advocate for the underserved, I chair committees and lend my time and expertise to individuals and organizations who find value in creating greater health and social equity outcomes for oppressed and underserved communities. My dedication as a Program Manager within the arena of public health service has afforded me access to important policy changes and legislation which impacts service models and bottom lines.
As an educator, I bring tons of experience in reaching specialized populations like Displaced Workers, LGBTQ+ groups, Youth in Crisis, HIV impacted communities and others. I've taught high school and have literally facilitated workshops in environments that span from prisons and board rooms.
With a keen ability to use language to create impact and communicate ideas I also serve as Editor-In-Chief for a health and wellness newsletter and column writer for a regional newspaper. My peer review journal article on the redefining of Dr. W.E.B. Dubois’s talented tenth theory remains one of the most downloaded articles in the journal within two disciplines amongst over 5,000 authors.
With dedication, excellence and innovation, I am actively and proudly reshaping our world in a way where everyone is respected and no one becomes "other"... Inclusion is an every day act which seeks to purposely promote representation, participation and growth at every level. I invite you to join me on the road to success inclusion can provide.
