This course teaches people about objectivity, the power of seeing things as they are, without projecting mental models, biases, and fears in order to react appropriately to changing dynamics, make sound decisions and improve relationships with others. The Principles of Objectivity is also used as an underlying framework for collaborative, “no shame-no blame” conversations about diversity and inclusion.

She has over 15 years of corporate experience with institutions such as American Express and Bank One and more than 15 years of consulting/entrepreneurial experience with clients such as the Presidential Inaugural Committee, Clinton ’92, The White House and a global beverage company, Governor Patrick appointed Ms. Thornton to serve twice. In 2007, she was appointed to the Massachusetts Workforce Investment Board (MWIB) to represent small business interests. She was also asked to serve as on an Advisory board to craft legislation merging three quasi-public agencies for small business to gain access to capital and business advisory support.
