Your First Step to Becoming a More Inclusive Leader with Erica Courdae

Y’all, are you ready to lean into a hard topic of conversation with the most empathetic and understanding guest?

*Let’s do this!*

>>Erica Courdae is a 20-year veteran of the beauty industry, salon owner, and DEI coach and consultant and today, she is going to teach us how to be more inclusive leaders in our businesses.<<

*Yes – I just said she’s in the beauty industry AND a diversity coach. This Queen wears a lot of crowns!*

But as a DEI coach, Erica is dedicated to creating a nonjudgmental space where you can explore how your actions, attitudes, and environment support your values and lead to a more inclusive community and world… and that’s what we are discussing today.

In this interview, Erica and I discuss:

  • How we can be better allies for the black community
  • How we all can be more inclusive leaders
  • The power we have as business owners to lead the revolution in a way that larger, top-heavy corporations don’t

and more.
