Leadership Development

Nyah, in partnership with her father Lawrence Funderburke, a former OSU basketball and NBA player, has developed a unique leadership approach called the Swim Strokes Paradigm™. This approach is designed to help both young and seasoned leaders expand their influence game. Nyah highlights specific swim strokes, each of which corresponds to a unique skill set and mindset that can help separate good leaders from great influencers. Her method is focused on creating aha! moments that will help listeners crystallize key leadership principles.

Giving back to society is a family tradition for the Funderburkes.


Female Empowerment

As an integral member of Ohio State’s female swim team — four straight Big Ten Championships — Nyah embraces the responsibility of being a role model to so many young girls who look up to her. She attended Columbus School for Girls in high school, which shaped her femininity, diversity, and affinity framework for gender equality initiatives (GEIs). She maintains, “When females are given the same opportunity as their male counterparts, we can add just as much value in corporate America and beyond. Rock wit it girl power™!”
