I am Luckie, an Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Accessibility (IDEA) Strategist and Senior Program Manager with expertise leading innovative technology initiatives for The Coca-Cola Company, United Parcel Service, Intercontinental Hotels Group, Walt Disney, ADT Security, Pfizer Pharmaceuticals, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Pearson Education, Google Expeditions, UL Safety, Cruise Lines International Association, Mohawk Industries and W.L. Gore.
As an IDEA educator and thought leader, I have guided many organizations and teams through the process of implementing workplace practices that lead to transformative culture and equity change.
When not rocking my Director of IDEA cape across the Meow Wolf multiverse, I am the owner and operator of Enchantment While Black, a family operated Travel and TURO transportation service fueling the wanderlust dreams of Brown and Black adventure travelers to Northern New Mexico and Northern Arizona.
Prior to my technology career, I worked in the nonprofit sector as a Child Advocate and Freedom School Program Coordinator for the Children’s Defense Fund, Community Strategist for Mayor Roxanne Qualls in Cincinnati, Ohio and Domestic Violence Advocate for the City of Atlanta.
Fostering STEAM, digital literacy and applied science youth enrichment programs are efforts I am deeply committed to. I am currently a New Mexico Equity Council leader and advisor supporting Taos Charter School and the Taos Municipal School District.
In 2016 I founded Taos STEAM Academy, a teen fueled, innovation incubator established to provide best-in-class, STEAM skills enrichment and rigorous code development opportunities for underrepresented youth in Taos County, New Mexico.
I received 2017-2018 Excellence through Equity (EtE) funding from District of Columbia Public Schools to pilot our STEAM enrichment program FUELSTEAM at Noyes Elementary School in Ward 5.
A proud VR4Good Innovator and Girl Who Codes, I am lucky to call the Land of Enchantment home for more than a decade.
