What people are saying:

“We initially asked Nicole to consult on self care during our organization’s staff meeting. We later asked Nicole to facilitate more in-depth organizational goal review and goal setting for our organization, as well as provide guidance on leadership and management. Nicole was the perfect person to bring in for our meeting. She provided an objective analysis of organizational capacity and practices, and provided a number of tools for moving to the next level. She provided constructive feedback, guided us through a review of our management challenges and gave sound advice on how to move forward. [We] truly enjoyed the goal setting exercise and getting a firmer handle on what management style best fits our organization. The self care work was also helpful and very much needed. Working with Nicole helped us review our work and organizational structure in a constructive and meaningful way. She helped us work through past issues and gave us solid advice on how to build a stronger, healthier organization. She was flexible and was able to tailor her content based on last-minute changes. It is a treat to work with someone who is both highly knowledgeable and deeply committed to the movement. We look forward to working with her again.  ~ Erin Matson and Pamela Merritt, co-directors, Reproaction

“Thank you again for being a guest on our podcast series and speaking on “Social Work Entrepreneurship.” Your interview gives a clear description of what transitioning from an agency based social worker to an independent consultant was like. You also provide extremely helpful tips and tools for the individual who is considering the same path. We appreciated that you emphasized what is most important is deciding on what one is passionate about. By explaining how you incorporate the Reproductive Justice framework into your business, you set an example of how to build a business around passion. We are certain that this episode will inspire many. Also, your interview has been downloaded over 1400 in its first week! Usually the first week of access has an average of 1000 downloads but this has surpassed that average significantly. We are sure that this podcast episode will continue to have a strong following moving forward. We here at inSocialWork truly appreciate your work in this area and look forward to future collaborations.” Caitlin Beck, inSocialWork Podcast  at the University at Buffalo School of Social Work

“We invited Nicole to lead a training on self care for our staff. Nicole provided useful information on self care and the differences between stress and burnout. She was also able to engage with staff who were on-site as well as participating at our satellite locations. Nicole is a knowledgeable advocate for women of color in the Reproductive Justice movement who are often not encouraged to practice self care.” ~ Melissa Garcia, National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health

“Nicole was contracted to support the development of an evaluation plan and materials to support the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene’s Race to Justice Initiative, an internal reform process for advancing racial equity and social justice in order to strengthen our work and improve health outcomes for all New Yorkers. Nicole is a very skilled and thoughtful consultant to support planning and evaluation efforts. We received valuable support and deliverables to developing the evaluation process for our effort. Nicole communicated clearly about work products and questions in order to move her work forward. ~ Rebekah Gowler, New York Department of Health and Mental Hygiene’s Center for Health Equity 

“I just wanted to personally thank you for your presentation [on the history of the reproductive justice framework] to our department. I so appreciated you taking time time to come share with us and you serving as an consultant for our Sexual and Reproductive Justice campaign. As someone who is delving into reproductive justice for the first time in my life, it is such an honor to get taught by people really doing this work. It was particularly helpful to [hear about] organizations doing this work and the diversity of topics in their ongoing projects. At times, it can be hard to grasp RJ because it encompasses so much, so the concrete examples you gave were really helpful.“ Natalie TaylorNew York City Department of Health & Mental Hygiene’’s Bureau of Maternal, Infant, and Reproductive Health (Sexual  and Reproductive Health Unit)

“I first met Nicole when we volunteered with an underserved population of young girls in Atlanta. Though she has a very quiet spirit, her love and passion for helping others is quite evident. I once asked her to speak on a panel encouraging college students to discover their passion through volunteerism. It was one of, if not, the first speaking engagement in which she’s participated and she was awesome! Her personal story was compelling. Since then, I’ve had the pleasure of watching Nicole set her focus on women and reproductive rights, and do and speak on some amazing things! I’ve subscribed to her newsletter and even shared her articles on self-care with my women’s network because they aren’t only informative, they’re inspiring. I am proud to know Nicole and all that she’s accomplished and would certainly recommend her as an advocate/speaker and adviser.” ~ Natalie Dean, founder, Whine & Cheese 

“Your honesty and willingness to share about [full time employment] and your consulting business have had a real impact on me lately. I’m in social work school right now studying management and consulting, and trying to piece together some contracts in the meantime that will allow me to transition to consulting full time in the future…Your [discussions] about macro practice in social work really helped solidify that it was the [MSW] degree I wanted (rather than an MPH), and your commentary on social workers making good consultants helped me hone in on a focus. If I was going to go back to school after working for a decade, I wanted to make sure my education was directly relevant to my career path! This is a long way of saying thank you, and that I look forward to reading more of your work!” Jennifer Drake Fantroy, Assistant Director, Sue Shear Institute for Women in Public Life

“I’ve used some of your materials in my counseling meetings with staff. Your information has been a great resource.“ Trista Fitzpatrick, Patient Services Director, Allentown Women’s Center

“It’s always nice reading your tweets. I’m also a Social Worker (MSW) & it’s encouraging seeing another Social Worker using [social media] to advance the ethics of the profession and be a blessing unto many!” ~ G.B., nonprofit professional 

“Nicole is one of the most dynamic and passionate leaders that I have ever met. We attended Spelman College together, and I remember her as always having a good head on her shoulders. She is knowledgeable about HIV/AIDS and factors that perpetuate its spread in the Black community and she was willing to do anything – educate, research, train – to help prevent the spread of the vicious disease. She is approachable and works well with others. I looked up to her for support and advice during my time at Spelman. I am not surprised by the success she has achieved in a short time period. She is living proof of the phrase “destined for greatness!” If you want to a dynamic and passionate leader who is goal-oriented on your team, then you will not be disappointed by Ms. Nicole Clark’s performance.”    ~ Jessica Ansong, MPH

“Reading [The Revolution Starts with Me!] self care zine was just what I needed to read today!!! Thank you so so so much for putting this together! I just posted it on the [Loyola University Chicago Empowering Sisterhood] Facebook Page. Hopefully they can use it at an upcoming gathering. That was amazing stuff!” ~ Nicole CottoChicago, IL

“Ms. Clark is a wonderful advocate for women and has been a great resource for the Young Women of Color HIV/AIDS Coalition. Working with her is a pleasure. She would be a great asset to any organization.”~ Kymsha Henry, Co-Director,Young Women of Color Health Advocacy Coalition

“I’m so happy to see the smart, talented Nicole Clark on [“30 Black Women Bloggers You Should Know in 2012”]. Along with being an amazing sex educator, she’s a tireless advocate for self-care in a world and a movement where women often forget that change begins with themselves. I’m on her newsletter that comes with a free, fabulous self-care zine that walks you toward taking better care of your inner and outer self. I encourage everyone to sign up!” ~ Shelby Knoxfeminist organizer and speaker

Having Nicole as a part of your team means you are doing the right kind of work!”    ~ Bianca I.

I highly recommend her.” ~ Danielle Smithexecutive producer, Exclusive Remedies Studio

“I just wanted to express my thanks for your participation in our If/When/How Regional Conference (2.11.12).
