Stand Up and Speak Out for Historically Black Colleges and Universities
Nikki Shawn Taylor is the Vice President of Detroit Historically Black Colleges and Universities Network.
It’s clear some people are put on this planet to help others, in an unselfish and sincere way, that touches on every aspect of their life. It would be difficult to find a woman who embodies that positive spirit more than public speaker and educator Nikki Shaun Taylor. Taylor is a woman who has devoted her considerable abilities to bringing awareness to the Black community regarding the importance and significance of Historically Black Colleges & Universities. Local communities have met her panel discussions with extreme enthusiasm.
Raised in the city of Detroit, she attended and graduated from St. Mary’s of Redford High School. After high school, she attended Grambling State University. Nikki earned a Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communications with a concentration in Public Relations from Grambling State University.
In January 2017, Nikki earned a Master in Business Administration from the University of Phoenix. Nikki is also the Vice President of the Detroit HBCU Network where she works tirelessly to educate parents and students on the significance and importance of an education at historically black colleges and universities.
She has 15 years of marketing, workforce development and college recruitment experience. Her passion for education, particularly higher education at Historically Black Colleges and Universities is what fuels her passion to engage young people.
To name a few significant positions Nikki has held, she has been the Director of Marketing for R&E Automated, Program Manager for the Resource Network (a Michigan Works! affiliate). Nikki has also worked for yelp! launching the Detroit market and for L’Oréal as a brand manager.
“My assignment while on this earth is to teach people how to accept their truth and greatness. Those two attributes are discovered on the campuses of HBCU’s throughout the country.” According to Taylor, she is very happy to be available as a speaker for all kinds of positive, constructive events. Organizers are encouraged to contact her directly and discuss the details of the project and see if Taylor’s life changing message would be a good fit.
