Cynthia and Nadia vibe right away which is exactly what caught Cynthia’s eye when scrolling through IG. Nadia shares tips for employees feeling burnout and yearning for career shifts in timely and relatable ways. What is most noted is Nadia’s big heart and her way of seeing the big picture and honoring the details that matter about your values. Nadia and Cynthia talk about the effect of the pandemic on employees, The Great Recession, Quiet Quitting VS. Quiet Cutting and more brave conversations you want to be having with us. 

Nadia has dedicated her coaching and consulting practice to uplifting women of color leaders and educating organizations committed to affirming the full humanity of their team members. She’s a self-described “ex-techie” who often felt the isolating impact of being the only woman and/or person of color within teams and entire organizations. As a leader and a mentor, she’s leveraged her experiences and expertise to equip professionals with inclusive leadership strategies and empower BIPOC women and femmes with guidance to thrive in the workplace. Her “keep it real” and authentic coaching and leadership style empowers professionals to intuitively navigate the corporate world with confidence to transform their careers and their impact.
