Dorothy Nelms Our MENTOR
Dorothy Nelms is the brilliance and heart behind everything we do at NewPoint. She has been our mentor and key advisor on the work we do to Create a Culture of Respect in the workplaces of America.
When Lynne was a young lobbyist on Women’s Issues in the Workplace, Dorothy Nelms, then the National President of Federally Employed Women, hired her to be their very first paid lobbyist. Lynne knew how to lobby, but it was Dorothy who taught her everything she knows about issues of Racial Equity and Social Justice and how to move the needle in Congress and the Administration. It was the beginning of a lifelong deep friendship and mentor/mentee relationship.
