Felicia Lundquist

Felicia Lundquist (she/her) draws on her lifelong commitment to social change leadership to bring people together, build trust, and develop shared understanding across differences. Just under a year ago, she joined the Think Again Training & Consulting team where she currently serves as the Training Manager. Prior to that she was the Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and an adjunct faculty member at Springfield College. She has over 20 years of experience in higher education ranging from admission to academic and student affairs. Felicia has co-created programs and initiatives such as the Hip Hop Leadership Summit, A SEAT (Social justice, Equity, Accountability, Transformation) At The Table, and numerous other academic and social support programs for first-generation students and students of color. Through her learning and teaching, Felicia has learned the power of social justice analysis, grounded in Black feminist thought, for helping people let go of internalized shame and guilt and become ready to make change. She holds a B.A. in Sociology and Spanish and an M.Ed from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. She was recently appointed to serve on the Northampton, MA "Commission to Investigate Racialized Harms Perpetrated Against Black Residents and Workers" and also serves as a co-chair of the Community Engagement Committee of the Board of Directors for the Greater Northampton Chamber of Commerce. Her overarching goal has been to build a more positive, collaborative, and supportive community by connecting organizations, councils, and community members and supporting the needs of individuals and institutions in creating a more inclusive environment in a challenging climate. She's also the author of “Give and Take, the Love and Hate Relationship: Black Identity, Plantation Politics, and Leadership” in Black Women Navigating Historically White Higher Education Institutions and the Journey Toward Liberation.
