The corporate landscape is undergoing a seismic shift in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI). As companies grapple with the intricacies of genuine inclusivity, many CEOs stand at a precipice, hesitant to plunge deep into the DEI rabbit hole. 

Their apprehensions are rooted in real concerns—shifting an organization’s culture and the potential removal of top performers.

As a Black conscious leadership consultant, I’ve journeyed alongside numerous CEOs navigating these trepidations.

Join me inside this episode as I share what I’ve gleaned from those experiences.

See you inside…

What You Learn:

  • What I’ve gleaned from experiences navigating the trepidations of CEOs on their DEI journies
  • Diving deep into DEI initiatives is not merely about adapting to modern trends
  • A genuinely top-performing team thrives in its diversity, where every member feels seen, heard, and valued
  • That the path to genuine inclusivity might be laden with fears, but with conviction, partnership, and a clear vision, it’s a journey worth embarking upon.

Featured on the Show:

Meet Anita Charlot – your conscious leadership consultant, trainer, and all-around advisor for conscious businesses. Anita digs deep into the big “why’s” of your business, walking you through how your purpose, values, and social impact can go hand in hand with your bottom line.

She’s all about helping leaders like you make sense of your place in the world, using real-world strategies, metaphysical insights, and philosophical principles to navigate decisions that sync up your business actions with what matters most for your Black and Brown employees.

Anita is passionate about guiding leaders through the ins and outs of allyship – from what it means to be an ally to the different levels of it. She creates a “no judgment” zone for you to ask all those “uncomfortable questions” and helps you create a supportive environment that forms a “glass bridge” instead of a “glass cliff” for Black and Brown women in leadership roles.

Anita is also the go-to person for Powerful Women of Color who’ve dealt with corporate trauma and are looking to bounce back and thrive, no matter where they work.
