If you’ve followed me for a while, you already know that throughout my podcasting journey, I've always strived to articulate complex emotions and concepts that we often find hard to express. That is why I am thrilled to have Inclusion Strategist, Author, Coach, and Podcaster Amber Cabral who is nothing short of a master at this craft when it comes to the DEI space. Amber brilliantly puts words to culture, equity, and privilege, addressing topics we often shy away from. Her insights have personally transformed my perspective, and I know they'll do the same for you and reshape how you navigate the world. Today, we dive deep into conversations that will challenge your thinking and provide you with a newfound understanding of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. Amber Cabral will equip you with the knowledge and mindset needed to foster a rich and real life for yourself and those around you, so believe me when I say this is a conversation you won't want to miss!
