When people are valued, respected, loved, heard, included, seen, honored – when we feel we matter, we are liberated, connected…whole.

Gloria Woods 

It is with very heavy hearts that we share that our beloved and esteemed executive consultant, colleague, sister, and friend, Gloria J. Woods, passed away late last week after her battle with cancer.  She is now home and at peace.

The Kaleidoscope family loved her and will tremendously miss her spirit, experience, and enthusiasm in helping organizations and communities create needed change through diversity, equity, and inclusion.  She cherished the opportunity to partner and serve so many throughout her life and dedicated her time and energy to make the world a better place for all.  A major force of greatness and love in our company, the world, and this work has left us; however her great spirit and legacy lives on through the many she touched with her wisdom, kindness, and love.  We look forward to cherishing her vast contributions and keeping her memory and work alive for years to come as part of all we do.

We extend a heartfelt appreciation to Nancy, her wonderful spouse and Partner of many years, for sharing her with us.
