During her undergraduate experience, Natalie Gillard found that support for individuals from diverse backgrounds was rather limited. The latter ignited her desire to pursue diverse professional opportunities and a self-designed graduate study in Race and Ethnic Relations. Natalie has held various inclusion roles over her 13 year career, most recently serving as Stevenson University's Assistant Vice President for Multicultural Experience.
Natalie is the creator of FACTUALITY, a facilitated dialogue, crash course, and interactive experience, that simulates structural inequality in America. FACTUALITY has supported the diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives of hundreds of corporations, organizations, and institutions including NBC, Google, Bloomberg, the American Heart Association, Princeton, Yale, and The University of Arizona, where author and civil rights activist, bell hooks participated.
FACTUALITY has reached over 25,000 participants and was featured in Amazon Best Seller | The Memo: What Women of Color Need To Know To Secure A Seat At The Table and Baltimore Magazine’s Best of Baltimore issue. Factuality is listed in the Kellogg Foundation's Racial and Equity Resource Guide and became an ice cream flavor through a partnership with social justice ice cream brand, Taharka Brothers.
