Invest the Time and Resources to Explicitly Meet the Needs of the Historically Underrepresented

“An overabundance of trust and discretion without sufficient accountability for resource allocation and the impact of decisions on historically marginalized communities is the breeding ground that has allowed inequities and harm to persist throughout history and continually reinvent itself to the detriment of these communities."


Dr. Lockett

Years Experience

Dr. Lockett has worked in non-profits and the public sector for the last ten years after serving one year as an AmeriCorps volunteer supporting at-risk youth with Joseph Pfeifer Kiwanis Camp in Little Rock, AR. As a person who has a passion for supporting historically marginalized young people reach their full potential, Dr. Lockett worked for non-profits in Portland, OR for 4 years teaching courses and workshops to teenage youth centered on life and social-skill building as well as college and vocational prep.

Dr. Lockett was born and raised in Memphis, TN where he was exposed to numerous adverse childhood experiences growing up starting at a very young age. Living in a community that dealt with over policing, gun violence, and lacking resources where schools were largely underfunded taught Dr. Lockett resilience at a young age.

Dr. Lockett's ability to speak authentically and straight to the point without making people feel alienated is a skill that makes his approaches highly effective. He often says, "how is what you are actually doing in practice aligning with what is in your policy and what you say you want to be as an organization?" He then walks you through action steps to ensure that is happening.

Andre's approaches to conversing about DEI are masterful. His ability to ask questions that require critical thinking about organizational culture and the experiences of employees from marginalized communities will help you self-reflect on your own level of understanding about equity.
