Organizations, universities included, pay Edwin Nichols, up to $35,000 for workshops on culture and why it causes whites and non-whites to think, feel, and behave.

Nichols’ bio: Eberhardt-Karls Universität in Tubingen, Germany, and at Leopold-Franzens Universität in Innsbruck, Austria, “where he received his Doctor of Philosophy in Psychology and Psychiatry, cum laude” (a rare degree). In some publicity material, he states that he founded a school of child psychology in Africa; at other times, he modestly withholds that accomplishment.

Donald Trump missed this orientation which is “mandatory” for freshman.  A central goal is to uproot “internalized oppression” and they involve topics like date rape, race relations, inappropriate jokes…racist, sexist, or classist.

Nichols’ schedule of fees is almost as impressive as his schedule of thought reform. He charges $3,500 for a three-hour “Basic Cultural Awareness Seminar,” plus travel and per diem. For a plain old “Workshop,” he gets $4,000-$5,000 plus expenses. This makes his staple offering–a “Full Day Session (Awareness Seminar and Workshop)”–a bargain at $5,000 plus expenses. For a “Cultural Audit,” he gets $20,000-$35,000 (he recently did one of these for the University of Michigan School of Medicine). The Bureau of Labor Statistics at the Department of Labor paid him $15,000 for diversity training; the Environmental Protection Agency got him cheaply at $12,000.

Business is booming. Nichols has brought awareness to the employees of six cabinet departments, three branches of the armed services, the Federal Reserve Bank, the Federal Aviation Administration, the Internal Revenue Service, and the FBI; the Goddard Space Center, the Naval Air Warfare Center, Los Alamos National Laboratory, and NASA; the Office of Personnel Management, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, and the Social Security Administration. He has enlightened city and county governments, whole school systems, various state government departments, labor unions, several prestigious law firms, and the Archdiocese of Baltimore. His clients include “Fortune 500 Corporations, foreign governments, parastatals, associations, health and mental health systems,” and he has been a consultant to offices of “The British Commonwealth of Nations” and “organizations in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Japan, Latin America…Singapore, Malaysia, and China.” He has a very long list of academic clients, and he was a centerpiece of Johns Hopkins’ 1999 freshman orientation.
