Meet the Founder
Coach Jamall Kinard, aka #TheBlackCoachK
Jamall Kinard is the Founder of the St8ments Clothing Brand, the President/Head Coach for his consulting company - Conscious Leadership, in Charlotte, NC, and a trainer with the Racial Equity Institute. He attended his first REI workshop in 2016, where his life was changed forever! After 10 years of service as an Educator and Coach in the Charlotte Mecklenburg School System, Kinard eagerly joined REI in August of 2019. As a community organizer/consultant, he devotes much of his time as the Executive Consultant/Director of the Lakeview Neighborhood Alliance (LNA), where he is leading the charge on revitalization efforts in his community by focusing on the prevention of gentrification, child & family stability, and civic awareness. His ultimate goal is to create a CIO- “Community IMPACT Organization” (Individuals Making Progress And Change Together) blueprint and movement of principles for all communities, organizations, and institutions to follow, creating an environment where truth and justice are celebrated, strong families are cultivated, and racism is dismantled. Kinard obtained a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Computer Science from Gardner-Webb University, Master’s Degree in Sports Leadership from Northeastern University, and Nonprofit Business Management Certifications from both Wake Forest University and Duke University.
Kinard's analysis about the cultural history of race, community organizing blueprint, and his ability to relate to any audience makes him the ideal candidate to be the next facilitator or consultant for your organization's diversity and equity training.
