What You Learn:

  • The landscape of corporate America is fraught with challenges for many, but for Black and Brown women, it’s marked by glass ceilings and stained glass windows
  • There’s a confluence of racial and gender biases that intersect, amplifying the challenges we face as Black and Brown women in the workplace
  • The impact of these barriers isn’t just professional; it’s deeply personal
  • It’s time to bring transformative change to your organizations by investing in training, reassessing your corporate culture, and making conscious efforts to uplift the voices and careers of Black and Brown women

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.
