“I have known V Ivana Foster for over 10 years. We started working together years ago and have maintained a personal friendship since then. She is very dedicated to assisting people achieve their personal and professional goals. She has a great attitude and business sense. I'd recommend her without reservation!” -Dr. Lainey Richardson, Clinical Director/Psychologist, PsyD
“V. Ivana Foster is an exceptional professional with an energy and drive that inspires and invigorates those around her. Ms. Foster has been an instrumental force in developing the framework for the Jewell Jackson McCabe Emerging Leaders Institute (ELI). During the time she served as the ELI Leadership Director, Ms. Foster designed and implemented the curriculum and recruited highly qualified and engaging facilitators for our program, who continue to serve today. Currently, she serves as a facilitator in both the Leadership and Young 100 Divisions of ELI and as a Curriculum Development Advisor for the entire Institute. In her role as Advisor, within 30 days she assisted the Apprentice Division in creating a challenging plan to excite teens about pursuing careers based in science, math, engineering, and technology (SMET).
In addition to her service to ELI, I have had the pleasure of working with Ms. Foster as a member of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Inc., where she facilitated workshops on professionalism, career development, and personal empowerment.
Ms. Foster’s reputation as the Confidence Architect is well deserved, as she freely shares her knowledge and skills with groups and organizations, confident that they will ask her to return for an encore.
