Rosalie is a Leadership and Executive Coach

Born and raised in Georgia, my journey began amid strict rules and traditional gender roles. With courage, time and spiritual growth, I challenged those restrictions. After attending Georgia Southern University, working as a legal administrator, paralegal and manager along the way, I landed in a large Atlanta law firm, eventually joining the executive staff, and becoming the first Diversity & Inclusion Manager. I was honored to receive Diversity Leadership Award from Alston & Bird, in 2009. My intense passion for inclusiveness and to help individuals and organizations reach their greatest potential fuels my work.

From 1994 to 1996, amidst motherhood, in a foreshadowing of my own speaking career, I started a children’s theater company, producing 14 plays, complete with script-writing, acting-coaching and coordination.


In 2009, I became a Cornell University ILR Certified Diversity Professional Advanced Practitioner (CCDP/AP) from Cornell’s Institute for Labor & Relations, the first of its kind in the country. Then in 2001, blending a fierce instinct for personal empowerment with my passion for empowering others, I began coaching and in 2010, upon moving to Denver, CO, I began consulting and speaking. I now bring 37 years of corporate and law firm experience as well as leadership development, team-building and talent management to the table and the literal stage, helping professionals and organizations understand that fear is the only thing between you and success–and the choice is yours.


I have been published numerous times; am a Professional Certified Coach; have multiple certifications in assessment tools and have served on various board across the country. Very close to my heart is the Colorado Women’s Bar Association and Top Lawyer Coaches, where I’m committed to empowering female thought leaders and strengthening the inclusivity of the legal industry. In 2016, I published my book, Conscious Leadership in the Workplace, and in 2017, I spoke at TEDxCrestmoor Park Women (now TEDxcherrycreek), and I was invited to join the Forbes Coaches Council.


I’m endlessly curious about the intersection of cognitive behavior and neuroscience as it relates to a human being’s path to success. I believe that meditation is the best way to start the day and have been practicing since 2007. Family, close friends, skiing, cycling and red wine are a few of my favorite things.

Diversity and Inclusion

Rosalie has unique experience and perspective with respect to organizational diversity and inclusion, having worked with a broad range of multicultural organizations with diversity challenges. She consults with leaders on talent management and developing and implementing strategies and best practices for building inclusive organizations.

She develops and facilitates educational programs, including classes on Diversity and Inclusion Awareness, Exploring and Understanding Unconscious Bias, Cross Cultural Competencies, Generational Diversity, People with Disabilities, Privilege and Rank, Conscious Leadership, Talent Management, Career Development and Diversity Skills Management (RTCT model). These programs have been presented for audiences ranging from single coaching sessions to over 200 attendees.

Hear what her clients have to say!

The students’ evaluation forms make it quite clear that they appreciated the way you handled the topic of “privilege.”  In fact, several wrote that they were curious about the topic, but had concerns about whether the program would somehow make them feel guilty.  They all commented on how you educated them about privilege and then let the students share their own experiences, which they found to be very helpful.  In particular, a few of the students “hadn’t really believed that minority people were still being treated differently, but once they heard what the other students were saying, they believed their classmates.”  And some students even suggested a “follow-up” session where they could “go further in depth and talk about applying the principles to improve the law school.”  I thought that was amazing!!

Rosalie is an engaging and insightful facilitator. I had the pleasure of hosting her ‘Exploring the Impact of Unconscious Bias’ workshop for the Colorado Women’s Chamber of Commerce. This workshop was thought-provoking, allowing attendees to leave with practical takeaways and a deeper sense of self-awareness. Rosalie would be a perfect addition to any organization’s event or training program.

It was a pleasure working with Rosalie Chamberlain to provide a series for nonprofit professionals. Rosalie’s knowledge and expertise is evident in each session presented. She was able to engage participants in meaningful conversations surrounding diversity and inclusion.

Colorado Nonprofit Association

“Working with Rosalie has been fun, energizing, educational and fruitful. She has helped me to understand how perspective creates limits; how imagination can lead to opportunity; how habits direct us; and how consciousness can empower new direction. Our discussions have helped me to galvanize my goals in a holistic and gentle way and provided focus for the direction I am taking. She’s terrific!”

Coaching Client

“Rosalie is great at helping people reach their potential. As a very goal driven person, I sometimes get tripped up in trying to do too much. Rosalie helps me identify what I really want to accomplish and then together we set achievable daily or weekly mini-goals to get there. She never pushes any agenda of hers—it’s all about me and how I want to prioritize things in my life. She’s helped me to reach some balance between work and play, something I’ve never been particularly good at.”

Kathie Kramer Ryan Coaching Client

“Rosalie helped me work to stay focused.”

Diane Coaching Client

She inspires others to broaden their perspectives and does so with the utmost integrity…Rosalie’s talents and authentic personality are a tremendous asset to any team and organization.”

Law Firm Director of Employee Development

“Rosalie is masterful in her ability to tackle these difficult topics. She is genuine, engaging, funny in just the right places and her passion to educate others about diversity and inclusiveness is so evident. Her style embraces her audience and makes them want to step back, think about their own behavior, beliefs and attitudes and then, make some changes. I am delighted that Rosalie was the kickoff speaker for our seven-part Inclusive Excellence Leadership Series. She set just the right tone. Wonderful!!

SuSaNi N. Harris Senior Director for Diversity and Inclusive Excellence, University of Colorado Law School

Rosalie’s presentation to our team went really well – – good materials, well presented and lots of enthusiasm and energy.   I received the same feedback from teammates. We definitely enjoyed it and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her or consider engaging her again.

I have known Rosalie Chamberlain professionally, for over 5 years. Rosalie and I were colleagues at Alston & Bird, prior to her establishing her Consulting and Coaching Firm. As a current member of the Atlanta Association of Legal Administrators, I serve on the Diversity & Inclusion Committee. I have had the privilege of working closely with Rosalie as she crafted Diversity and Inclusion workshops for our local chapter. Rosalie is effective in that she is intimately connected to the material she presents. Rosalie is reliable and keenly aware of her audience and approaches the delivery of said material effectively. Rosalie is a professional who thinks outside the box and can be counted on to deliver what she has promised. I highly recommend Rosalie as a Consultant and Coach.

Claristine S. Pinckney Resource Center Manager

Rosalie has spoken to the students in my ‘Managing Cultural Diversity’ class over many semesters. Her willingness to impart her wisdom is only outdone by the expertise she brings to the table, in validating various course concepts and showing how diversity and inclusion play out in real life. This is of the greatest benefit to my students – in that they get to see firsthand how the conceptual material we discuss translates to the real world and impacts people’s lives. Rosalie’s integrity and credibility stem from her passion for her work . She is highly knowledgeable, devoted and driven to make the world a more inclusive place!

Rosalie is a phenomenal facilitator and coach. I have worked with her as Chair of Diversity & Inclusion committee with AALA. Rosalie has extensive knowledge in the diversity arena and understands the business needs and sensitivities of her clients. She is very collaborative and a wonderful coach and mentor. Rosalie is creative and demonstrates expertise in her craft. I would highly recommend Rosalie as a facilitator and coach for any business or individual.
