Tina Opie

Founder of Shared Sisterhood. 


Ranked in 2023.


Shortlisted for the Thinkers50 2023 Breakthrough Award with Beth A. Livingston.


Shared Sisterhood was named one of Forbes’s 10 Best Business Books of 2022.


Tina explores the connections between diversity, inclusion, and equity along with identity, culture, fashion, authenticity, and professionalism. She first started Shared Sisterhood™ as a movement to drive gender and racial equity in organisations. Her 2022 book, Shared Sisterhood (co-authored with Beth Livingston), explains how to use vulnerability, trust, empathy, and risk-taking to build ‘shared sisterhood’ in the workplace. Tina breaks this process down into three key parts: dig into your own assumptions around race ethnicity, gender, and power; bridge the divide between women of all backgrounds through authentic relationships; and advance all women across the organization and beyond.  


Tina is the Chief Vision Officer of Opie Consulting Group LLC and the founder of Shared Sisterhoo​​d™. She is also a visiting Scholar at Harvard Business School and an Associate Professor of Management at Babson College, where she teaches Organisational Behaviour courses. As a consultant and speaker, Tina shares her shared sisterhood framework with a focus on creating more diverse, inclusive, and equitable workplaces. Before teaching, she was a consultant at A.T. Kearney and a commercial banker at Bank of America.


Shared Sisterhood: How to Take Collective Action for Racial and Gender Equity at Work (HBR Press, 2022). Tina’s work has appeared in O Magazine, The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, and Harvard Business Review. She is a regular commentator on the Women at Work podcast, and Greater Boston’s NPR affiliate television station WGBH.
