Our purpose is to provide actionalable insights and wisdom from a diverse group of leaders, executives, consultants, entrepreneurs, and DEI change-makers in the workplace. We’ve been fortunate to host industry luminaries from organizations like Hewlett Packard (HP), Ford, Kohl’s, and many others who have generously shared their expertise on DEI topics.

Our ultimate achievement is when our listeners feel inspired and empowered with ideas to enhance their DEI leadership and life skills. We believe that even if we can move one person to advocate for DEI in their surroundings , it’s a triumph for the cause.
