Regenea A. Hurte, Esq. (she/her) is an ABIDE (Accessibility, Belonging, Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity) practitioner utilizing her education, training, and lived experience across almost two decades of varied professional roles, to help individuals and organizations recognize and understand the meanings, responsibilities and benefits of meaningfully engaging Diversity, and then assessing culture and implementing tools and practices to effectively improve those metrics. Her tag phrase of “culture beyond compliance” embodies her belief that we need to understand that we will never truly become the organizations we aspire to be, and serve the full population that we say we want to serve, without building truly welcoming cultures in which all people feel they belong. Accordingly, we must stop “checking off boxes” just to be in compliance, and work towards true culture shift. Regenea provides individual and group training, coaching, and policy review and implementation to aid organizations in becoming meaningfully welcoming environments in which all members and/or participants can thrive. Experiences over her professional career include practicing criminal and civil law, non-profit executive director, legislative advocate, organizational assessment and implementation, Civil Rights/Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Investigator, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion trainer, facilitator, practitioner and higher education administrator. Regenea has undertaken and been tapped for national, regional, and local leadership positions around Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and Civil Rights and has presented for and worked with multiple federal and state agencies and local and national organizations. Regenea earned her bachelors degree in psychology, her Juris Doctorate, and is a licensed attorney.
