Kelly Durden Posey is an NC Licensed attorney and founder of Inspired Inclusivity Consulting, LLC. Through her career, Kelly has taken every opportunity to speak her truth, while educating and inspiring others. Kelly began practicing law 15 years ago with a focus on making the law accessible for everyone. She worked at Legal Aid of North Carolina and the Charlotte Center for Legal Advocacy (formerly Legal Services of Southern Piedmont) to have the strongest impact in the lives of low-income and underrepresented individuals. She initially represented survivors of domestic violence in civil and family court. Later, Kelly represented unaccompanied minors from Spanish-speaking countries through justiceAmeriCorp to assist them in obtaining legal status in the United States. In 2013, she became the founding attorney of the region’s first LGBTQ Law Center in Charlotte, NC where the primary focus of the practice was to support the legal needs of all people who identify as LGBTQ+, regardless of income. While practicing law, Kelly also taught various legal-based courses at the Art Institute of Charlotte and paralegal courses at Central Piedmont Community College. She later worked with both public and private corporations in the areas of Human Resources, Employee Relations and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI). When she was diagnosed as having ADHD in 2020, Kelly decided to combine her legal experience and HR/DEI knowledge to open Inspired Inclusivity Consulting, LLC. As a mother of three, Kelly is driven to find innovative ways to educate businesses and individuals that work with families and kids regarding the best ways to create inclusive spaces, particularly for unseen diversity including LGBTQ+, mental health and neurodiversity.
