Patrice M. Palmer (they/them/their pronouns) calls both the Sea Islands of South Carolina and Detroit, MI home. They are a doctoral candidate in the School of Education at Baylor University where their work revolves around gender variance, workplace inclusion, intersectional leadership, organizational change, social responsibility, curriculum integration and inclusive pedagogy/andragogy.

Patrice has published works centered on diversity, equity and inclusion within higher education and intentionally focuses on the concept of intersectional leadership within their teaching methods.

Patrice is an award winning diversity, equity and inclusion educator as well as a TEDx speaker, motivational leadership coach, D&I workplace inclusionary panelist and sought after keynote.

Patrice combines cultural storytelling and academic theory with personal narratives to create a new socio-cultural framework for challenging how DEI shows up in the workplace.

Patrice is an adjunct faculty member at Colorado State University and currently serves as the Director of Social and Cultural Inclusion in the College of Business. That position is jointly held with New Belgium Brewing Company’s D&I Specialist role. This partnership marks the first U.S. craft beer position connected with an AACSB accredited business administration role. Currently Patrice serves as the only D&I Specialist in the U.S. craft beer industry with this joint designation.

Patrice is also the founder, CEO and principal consultant at eROOT Consulting, LLC; a D&I consulting firm founded in 2019 that works with SMB companies/organizations and B2B startups helping reconstruct their DEI organizational strategies in Northern Colorado.
