Today’s guest is seasoned in leading difficult conversations on race, class, and gender, by doing so she helps build resilient, equitable, and inclusive organizations.

She has over 20 years of experience creating, leading and managing international, multicultural teams through major organizational changes in over 40 countries.

She designed and administered more than 150 global programs that directly engaged 500,000 people into action and almost one million people indirectly through the creation of global strategies. In addition, she also led one of the largest Humanitarian Grants programs in the country while working at Rotary International.

As a nonprofit consultant and facilitator, she believes that to create work of depth and meaning, leaders need to fully engage both their creativity and their intellect. Through her company, Adaway Group, she helps organizations make full use of both abilities to create strong narratives that showcase not just the data, but the story behind the data.

Please join me in welcoming Desiree Adaway.

 

In this episode we discuss:

  • her thoughts on leadership: “Leadership is moving that which is on the margins to the center.”
  • her early experiences in leadership and how she feels she was born with a natural ability and right to step up and lead.
  • how she gave herself five years to get her business off the ground, and just celebrated her 9th anniversary as an entrepreneur.
  • how networking helped her create a strong foundation of support before she started her own business.
  • her work today around inclusion and diversity in the workplace.
  • why she does not have employees on purpose.
