Delores B. Lindsey, Ph.D., retired as Associate Professor of Education at Cal State San Marcos, San Marcos, CA, but did not retire from the education profession. As a former middle grades and high school teacher, assistant principal, principal, and county office of education administrator, her primary focus is developing culturally proficient leadership practices aimed at closing educational gaps. She helps educational leaders examine their organizations' policies and practices, and their individual beliefs and values about cross-cultural communication. Her message to her audiences focuses on socially just educational practices, culturally proficient leadership practices, and diversity as an asset to be nurtured. Dr. Lindsey offers keynote address and facilitates educators to develop their own inquiry and action research. Her favorite reflective question is: "Are we who we say we are?" She is also a Training Associate for Cognitive Coachingsm and Adaptive Schoolssm. Delores and husband Randall, her favorite Sage/Corwin author, continue to co-write about the application of the four Tools of Cultural Proficiency. They enjoy working together with school districts to guide school leaders on their journey toward equity and socially just practices for all learners.

Kikanza Nuri-Robins �helps people to close the gap between what they say they are and what they actually do. � Whether she is in a corporate boardroom, the fireside room of a retreat center, or a convention center auditorium, Kikanza uses her skills and insights to help people and organizations that are in transition - or ought to be. � She shares her observations and recommendations with clarity and candor, while gently encouraging them to face the difficult situations that challenge their skill sets and their values. � She leads people to this growing edge with unswerving focus, an understanding heart, and laughter that rises from the seat of her soul. � Since 1978, Kikanza has worked as an organizational development consultant in a variety of settings includ�ing education, health care, criminal justice, and religion, focusing on leadership development, change management, and cultural proficiency. Her clients range from school districts, to university faculty, to government offices and non-profit organizations. � The connecting thread is her passion for working with people who want to making a difference for others. � Kikanza studied at Occidental College, the University of Southern California, and the San Francisco Theological Seminary. � She is the author of many articles and five books, including: Cultural Proficiency and Culturally Proficient Responses to the LGBT Communities . Kikanza lives in Los Angeles where she spends her discretionary time as a textile artist.

Randall B. Lindsey is emeritus professor at California State University, Los Angeles and has a practice centered on educational consulting and issues related to equity and access. Prior to higher education faculty roles, he served as a junior and senior high school history teacher, a district office administrator for school desegregation, and executive director of a non-profit corporation. All of his experiences have been in working with diverse populations and his area of study is the behavior of white people in multicultural settings. It is his belief and experience that too often white people are observers of multicultural issues rather than personally involved with them. He works with colleagues to design and implement programs for and with schools, law enforcement agencies, and community-based organizations to provide access and achievement. He and his wife and frequent co-author, Delores, are enjoying this phase of life as grandparents, as educators, and in support of just causes that extend the promises of democracy throughout society in authentic ways.
