Alice Nichols

What we care about

Ms. Nichols is an avid environmentalist who partnered in founding a 501 C3 non- profit organization in the U.S., The Natural Step, working in collaboration with a Swedish firm of the same name. She has also lead ongoing learning forums with chief sustainability officers of NYC-based Fortune 100 and 500 companies.

An area of her active work is with the UU Urban Ministry, a 280 year old social justice ministry dedicated to bridging the divides of race, class and ethnic groups through outreach programs. An additional passion has been working with youth through a complex year-long coming of age process that addresses comparative religion, social action and relationship building.

Ms. Nichols holds a Bachelor's degree from the University of Colorado (French) and a Master's degree from Harvard University (Consulting and Counseling Psychology)
