A Message from Our President and CEO

The time is now to believe in the power of what we can do.


At Mays & Associates (MAYS), we provide customized solutions for growth. We know that our vision to move conversations forward and to help individuals and organizations obtain their best work are achievable.

I founded MAYS on the legacy of my father, Arthur M. Mays, who made inroads by often being the first African American in professional positions and who purposefully paved the way for others to follow. Mr. Mays, along with the support of his wife and my mother Betty Tomlinson, broke down barriers and always reminded those closest to them that each individual, through the power of education, can make a difference.

Over the past nearly 24  years, MAYS has helped thousands of individuals build sustainable cultures within their organizations and assisted individuals reach their personal and professional goals. We would be honored to help you on your next journey. 

Dr. Shanda Gore

President and CEO
