I’m a DEI expert, but I’m also a human, and I speak from my own unique experiences in order to inspire, educate, and empower others.

Shortly after the Black Lives Matter movement started to gain momentum, I walked into work and saw a stress ball in the shape of a coffee cup on my chair. Written across the front in bold lettering: #coffeematters. 

 

I approached my boss and explained why this was hurtful and offensive, and the conversation eventually led me to our CEO’s corner office. He was unaware of the movement, despite running a large, national company. I was shocked. How can you serve the people in these communities and not know what’s happening? 

Most organizations do not intentionally create cultures that lack diversity, equity, and inclusion. However, it takes a bold  leader to initiate change and challenge conventional, “but it’s always been done this way” thinking. It also takes a commitment from everyone—intern to c-suite—in order to create true, sustainable change.

At this particular company, there was no one in leadership who looked like me, a Black woman. Despite my efforts, unfortunately there was also no one in leadership who was willing to commit to the work on an organizational or an individual level.

That’s when I made the decision to dedicate my life’s work to becoming an empathetic, audacious guide to help organizations who are ready to commit to deep-rooted, lasting change.
