We assist individuals and organizations that are in transition – or ought to be. Kikanza and Lewis work alone, in their own consulting practices, and together, with colleagues, as The Robins Group.
Kikanza Nuri-Robins is a sojourner for truth. She has been an advocate for justice, equity and inclusion — first, in the Civil Rights movement, then as an elementary school teacher and lecturer in Urban Studies, and for most of her career as a consultant. In that role, she has worked as a school desegregation cop, a teacher of public administration, and an organization development specialist serving mission-driven organizations across the country.
Dr. Nuri-Robins is a facilitator, speaker, writer and counselor. Her clients include educators, community workers, business people, and leaders of many faith traditions. The unifying thread of her work over the past 35 years has been her advocacy and support for marginalized and targeted people. She started her career thinking she would change the world. Now she knows that she is most effective making a difference, wherever in the world she finds herself, one conversation at a time.
Kikanza is the author of many articles and six books, including: Cultural Proficiency and Fish out of Water. She lives in Los Angeles where she serves on the Bio-Ethics Committee of the UCLA Medical Center and the boards of several social-service organizations. She is the chosen mother of two extraordinary women, Gogo to three brilliant and beautiful children, and Auntie to many, many more. She spends her discretionary time in her studio playing with color and textiles.
Lewis G. Bundy spent his career working for social justice. He has been a teacher, a community organizer, and a desegregation consultant. As an organization development consultant, he provided training and technical assistance to educational and non-profit agencies. His focus was on helping teens and young adults develop the skills to become highly functioning citizens, and helping the adults who work with them to respond appropriately to their needs. My friend and colleague died in 2018. May he rest in peace.
