Dr. Verna Cornelia Price
CEO, The Power of People Consulting
After working as a consultant and executive coach in the Twin Cities for two decades, Verna Price looks to 2021 to change corporate cultures around race. Price, one of the few Black women in the Twin Cities who’s served as a leadership adviser, wants to leverage the heightened awareness around racism and inequality to move beyond traditional diversity and inclusion programs. Old ways of addressing these issues in corporations have failed to retain and promote many employees of color. By examining norms, she wants to work in partnership with private businesses to create new approaches that yield better results.
