It's Good. It Lasts.
building better culture for educational equity
“If your school is looking for an engaging speaker on the topic of masculinity, look no further. Following the presentation, the conversation continued among our students for the rest of the year, and our community was better for it.”
— David Irwin, Head of Upper School at Fenn
With thorough research, thoughtful analysis, and strategic synthesis, Nick makes sense of complex ideas while providing a clear and convincing argument. His writing is both inviting and invigorating, and he works to earn the reader's trust and consideration, which is critical for important topics regarding equality, society, and culture. – Dr. Chris Thurber, drchristhurber.com

"What a terrific all school meeting. I definitely walked away with a better understanding of masculinity and how to be a man. I think this lesson is essential for all boys at our age."

"GoodMenders' Leadership that Lasts workshop series was a highlight of our new team member onboarding experience. Playing the role of thoughtful facilitator, Nick created space for our team to share, listen, and challenge our preconceptions. The tools and content that we received were practical and translated well to a business audience. Coming out of the workshops, we are aligned in our pursuit of an exceptional and lasting culture."

"I enjoyed having Nick join our student life class. Our class talked about 'breaking the box' and how we can do better as boys by not being toxic and accepting things that may not be totally masculine. I think his visit to our class really helped us understand how we can improve and grow to be better men.”
Ryan – Middle School Student
"I am leaving this workshop with a clear plan to be a moral leader. More importantly, I learned how to break down harmful stereotypes, be a better listener, and help resolve conflict.”
Andrew – High School Student
"This was the most practical and helpful leadership workshop I have attended. I am motivated to be a better leader tomorrow.”

“As a group of young men in college, we used our fair share of harmful language and often shared some problematic attitudes. Nick offered his personal experience to empathize and connect. He did not tell us what to do, but guided the group out of our comfort zone together. We learned about each other and felt more comfortable being vulnerable—a huge first step.”
