My own personal and professional journey opened my eyes to the connection between societal stereotypes and self-limiting beliefs. I know the power of overcoming conscious and unconscious bias, in ourselves and those around us. I’ve lived it—as a DE&I leader and as an African-American woman.
I’m a case study for my own work. I’ve navigated across cultures, moved abroad, learned a new language, and worked to use my gifts and experience to make an impact.
My greatest lesson: we succeed when we see ourselves without barriers. As people and organizations, if we can reframe what we’ve come to understand as our obstacles as assets, we can harness the power of diversity to achieve our greatest potential.
—Marian Wright Edelman
I’ve committed my professional life to being a catalyst for systemic organizational change around diversity, equity, and inclusion, authentic leadership, and women’s empowerment. Living and working in the US, Europe, and Asia, I developed cultural awareness that helps me connect to teams dispersed across the globe. C-suites and boards of multinational consulting, pharmaceutical, and technology enterprises have entrusted me with leadership of DE&I. I’m proud to have helped inform and guide corporate leadership at Google, Pfizer, Sanofi, and Bristol-Myers Squibb.
Through collaboration and communities of practice, I’ve secured key high-profile strategic partnerships with the United Nations, World Economic Forum, and Valuable 500 Disability Awareness organization, and other groups, to develop and share the most progressive DE&I, leadership and organizational development practices.
What I’ve learned, I share. That’s vital to my mission. I use my platform as a speaker, thought leader, and consultant to advance best practices around diversity, equity, and inclusion.
I speak to corporate audiences, professional associations, and nonprofits. I’m excited to help you and your organization work without limit.
