Dr. Tina Opie is a voice for change—and coalition building— fostering a sense of inclusion in society, communities, and organizations. As a thought leader and provoker, she combines practice and theory, an approach that ensures engagement, deep thinking, and action.

Using her trademarked Shared Sisterhood framework, she helps individuals and organizations “dig in” and unearth our blind spots, providing a catalyst for new thinking—and needed change. In developing Shared Sisterhood, Opie has created more than a powerful approach for connecting and supporting each other, she’s fostering a new way of navigating the world by staying true to ourselves while working together. It’s a modern-day movement of individuality and sisterhood that crosses traditional boundaries of ethnicity, socio-economics, age, even gender.

An Associate Professor of Management at Babson College, Opie has been recently named a visiting scholar at Harvard Business School following her MLK Visiting Professor/Scholar position at MIT (2020-2021). Her speaking and consulting work has helped organizations including American Express, Hulu, the NFL and dozens more navigate forward toward more inclusive organizations. She is a regular commentator on Harvard Business Review’s Women at Work podcast and Greater Boston’s NPR affiliate television station WGBH. Her work has appeared in top national publications, from the Harvard Business Review and O Magazine to The Washington Post, Boston Globe and more. Look for Tina’s book, Shared Sisterhood, co-authored with Dr. Beth Livingston and published by Harvard Business Press, in Fall 2022. Opie obtained her Ph.D. in Management (with a concentration in organizational behavior) in 2010 from New York University's Stern School of Business; she earned her MBA from the Darden School of Business in 1999.

Dr. Opie—Tina—opened our first Annual Women’s Leadership conference with extraordinary energy, honesty, humor and realness. Tina’s deeply personal, authoritative, lets-be-straight-here stance captivated our audience and set the tone for the day, of personal sharing, of vulnerability, and of combining heart, mind, and spirit to solve deeply intractable problems in new ways. Tina is a brilliant speaker: profoundly knowledgeable, personal, captivating, and truly engaging with audiences. Our group of over 400 wished for more, and we are inviting her back to open our conference again this year. Any group will be lucky to have Dr. Opie speak to them.

I garnered the most information from Dr. Opie's discussion. What really stood out to me, and something I actually repeated to one of my colleagues that day was the action item where she stated that we should write down what we're going to let go of and walk towards what we're going to do. I feel that in my current situation, professionally, I've been holding on to a lot of things that I need to let go, and help the organization walk towards what we need to do next. I think its critical that in a fight or flight situation, you pick the side and stick to it. I've often waivered in that arena. Dr. Opie's words resonated with me, whereby I was able to put that phrase into action with my strategic planner the next morning.
