Froswa Booker-Drew ’12 (GSLC, PhD) was featured in Dallas Doing Good. The article, entitled “Froswa Booker-Drew: Cultivating Philanthropy and Collaboration for Community Transformation in Dallas,” describes Booker-Drew’s work at Soulstice Consultancy, which she founded. Her company provides consultations, training, and coaching to individuals and organizations focused on making a meaningful impact in their communities. Her services focus on nonprofit management, philanthropy, change management, and leadership.

When asked what inspired her to do this important work, she says her parents were a major cornerstone in her learning to live a life in service to others. When she was growing up, they owned a restaurant and spent much of their time doing humanitarian work.

“My parents made such a difference in my life,” Booker-Drew shares. “It wasn’t that giving was something outside the norm or something special. Giving is a part of who I am and being a part of my community started as a kid. I saw that I didn’t lose anything by sharing. Sharing my time, talent, testimony, and treasure with others is what life is about.”

In this Common Thread profile of Booker-Drew, she credits her experience as a PhD student at Antioch for fueling her passion in her work.  “I wouldn’t have had the framework without having that kind of education—it was priceless,” she said. “I hope I am an agent of change that makes an impact. I want to be part of such a legacy.”

Booker-Drew has received many honors for her work and involvement, including the 2023 Women of Wisdom, the 2022 United Way of Dallas Public Service Award, and the 2022 CitySquare Hometown Hero, among many others. She is the author of four books, including the recent award-winning Empowering Charity: A New Narrative of Philanthropy (Baylor Press, 2022). Booker-Drew is currently an adjunct professor at Tulane University.
