Janice Niederhofer - Founder/Board President
Janice Niederhofer, MA, is the innovative Founder and Board Chair for Humankind Alliance. Janice has a unique skill set both in law enforcement and in human behavior which serve as the basis for HA's initiatives. She is a thought-leader with immense passion. Janice's personal experiences as a female law enforcement agent informed the creation of both the Law-Enforcement Community Initiatives and the Women's Programs.
Janice began a distinguished law enforcement career as a police officer with two departments, then served 21-years with the Drug Enforcement Administration, (DEA)—the single-mission U.S. federal agency with a reputation as the world’s premier drug enforcement organization. Janice broke through many formidable glass ceilings for women, blazing the path for those who followed. She was the first female SWAT team member, first female hostage negotiator, the first female narcotics detective, and the first female to be assigned to numerous specialized details previously only offered to men.
Janice created a series of first-of-their-kind training programs and became a highly sought-after subject-matter expert in the areas of human behavior, leadership/leadership development, self-defense, body language, communication, weapons handling, polygraph, interviewing/interrogation, and tactical skills. She has taught these subjects and more to all levels of law enforcement agencies, including DEA, FBI, Secret Service, CIA, NCIS, ATF, Drug Unit Commanders Academy (DUCA), Tribal PD, LAPD, Detroit PD, Congreso Internacional de Control de Confianza (CISEN), Department of Defense, NSA, Immigrations Customs Service (ICE), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and more.
Janice has a bachelor degrees in Psychology and Criminal Justice and a masters degree in Forensic Psychophysiology. In addition to her higher education, Janice has extensive Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) certifications including: Master Practitioner, Health Practitioner, WealthyMind™ Practitioner, and Coaching. She was honored to be a part of Robbins Research International, Inc. (RRI) for ten plus years that included responsibilities as a trainer and one of their first certified coaches. Janice also worked for Mark Victor Hansen, an original co-founder of the Chicken Soup for the Soul book series, in charge of facilitating his Mega Inner Circle elite client group.
Janice retired from Law Enforcement in 2008 and continued her spirit of service by creating Undercover Rose, Inc., a company dedicated to unmasking women’s true potential. Janice delivers state of the art training, consulting programs, and events to individuals as well as a plethora of audiences. Janice believes in sharing and passing forward her hard earned knowledge through experiential education to create a bolder, wiser, and more evolved world. Janice has continued this mission through her vision for Humankind Alliance. HA's initiatives are a culmination of Janice’s wisdom gained through her incredible career, education, and personal experiences.
