Featured Speakers: Nicole Cozier, Senior Vice President, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, Human Rights Campaign (Pronouns: She/Her/Hers)
Moderator: Kate Bean, Director of Marketing & Public Relations, Bryce Jordan Center (Pronouns: She/Her/Hers)
Description: In the 12th [email protected] Session, Kate Bean will “sit down” with Human Rights Campaign Senior Vice President of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Nicole Cozier. As part of EAMC’s continued commitment to diversity and inclusion, this session will explore LGBTQ terminology, the act and practice of allyship, as well as how to build a culture of inclusivity within your organization.
Nicole Cozier's Bio: Nicole has more than 20 years of non-profit experience in the direct service, advocacy and philanthropic sectors. Most of Nicole’s career has been focused on gender equity; however, in the words of Audre Lorde – “there is no such thing as a single-issue struggle, because we do not live single-issue lives,” so a lens of diversity, inclusion and cultural competency has always been a central component of her work. Nicole describes her current position as the head of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at the Human Rights Campaign as “a perfect culmination of her experience and her passion for work with deep personal significance.” In her role as Senior Vice President, for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, Nicole is responsible for designing and implementing strategy and initiatives that translate diversity, equity and inclusion philosophy and into core organizational practice.
Immediately prior to joining HRC, Nicole spent 8 years on the staff of Washington Area Women’s Foundation in various positions, the last of which was as Chief Operating Officer. Cultivating excellence among staff and maintaining an organizational environment where staff could thrive was a core priority in this role in addition to the development and cross-organizational implementation of the organization’s strategic goals.
Nicole is a Certified Dare to Lead™ Facilitator, a certified administrator for the Intercultural Development Continuum (IDI), and a Certified Diversity Executive (CDE). A resident of the metro Washington area for 20 years, Nicole grew up in Toronto, Canada, and has also lived in Philadelphia, New Jersey, USVI, and Barbados. Nicole currently lives in Northern Virginia with her wife and daughter. Nicole’s passions include time with her daughter, dance, building Lego, and various other creative outlets.

Come enjoy this Mixer with the EAMC community! Please make sure you have your camera and microphone set up, as we will be breaking out into groups for networking and discussions, doing a show-and-tell, and so much more. There will be some surprises, but here's a bit of what to expect:
• Show-and-Tell - Grab your favorite working pass, show poster or anything else from an event you've worked or attended. We'll spotlight people and have them tell us a quick story behind the item.
• EAMC Cocktail Tutorial - Just like the popular EAMC-tini last time, our resident mixologist will be showing you how to make another mixed drink.
• Breakouts - We'll split the full group into small breakouts of five people for you to meet each other, network, and talk. Don't worry, we'll also prompt you with some topics to kick around so there's never any awkward silence! This will happen multiple times, so you'll be able to meet and network with new people.
The Mixer serves as a more casual, open discussion with people in this industry. Want to blow some steam, complain about a furlough or brainstorm a better way forward? You're with good company. Think of this like the hotel bar at the conference, where people congregate throughout the night. Can't join until later? No problem! Hop on when you can!
